    Microsoft has Powertoys for XP available on its site for download. It's very extensive, and one of the options is to permit an auto logon. There are hundreds of system tweaks in it. Worth a try.

    ..it's also up on my web site. #3b. It's only 692Kb. Click my sig, then the purple button labelled Freeware is the quickest way to it.
    Previous TweakUI versions also work with XP : not a lot of people know that (or would want to).

    Hi
    Do it that way if you want, but on my site it's a zipped file (from 939Kb to 692Kb) and takes 3 minutes at the nowadays far more common rate of 56.6Kb/s.

    Cheers
