    Bootup Admin logo

    I've gone brain dead and I've had some zealous utility program change my boot up. Somewhere in the User Account section there is something that I check or uncheck that stops Windows from requiring that I click on my Admin picture in order for the bootup to continue. I can't remember what that is...I really appreciate your help!

    Thanks Clint your link to How to bypass the Welcome screen works. (Perhaps, click the start orb, type netplwiz.exe, press Enter, and clear the check box by "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer").
    The only thing it does nothing to speed up the boot process. although it does indeed go straight to the desktop it just stays on loading windows for longer. Would be nice if it was possible to reclaim that time if is not going to display welcome screen.

    All typing errors are my own work and subject to patents pending. Except errors by the spell checker. And that has its own patients.
