    Go to Display Properties, Screen Saver tab, clear the check in the "On Resume, Password Protet" box.

    Only if you have it (The computer) set up in a SINGLE USER mode, only one account. Then there is the tweak using TweakUI in saving your password. But anytime you need to boot to another account, you have to "log off" and then log in using the different account.

    You may be a single user, but how many accounts is there on the machine?

    Have you down loaded and installed TweakUI from Microsoft?

    Jordan--

    Just trying to make sure I understand what the blue screen you want to make disappear on boot or any other time looks like--and by any chance have you put any .net framework downloads on your PC? Does it look anything like the SS in Post 286499 on this thread? Was it showing up when you left the computer idle for a few minutes, and now still on boot?

    I'm going to venture a guess. I think what Dave means is that you can boot this blue screen with Tweak UI--possibly so. It's very worthwhile and popular and can do a number of other things. Other ways you might attack your blue screen so you can boot straight to your desktop:

    1) If the user account refers to the .net service--something like .net.asp just delete the account at that box.
    2) If you feel the need for hacking the registry, then see:

    315231: How to Enable Automatic Logon in Windows

    Further reference:

    282866: HOW TO: Automatically Log On a User Account in Windows XP

    Ed. SMBP--I deleted the suggestion to put "control userpasswords2" in the runbox and take the check out of the checkbox because instead of impacting the blue welcome screen that's a byproduct of .net framework downloads it causes a boot and fast user switch to a completely new XP "user" account, and while you can switch back and all your data and settings are of course intact, it can cause a lot of anxiety if you aren't expecting it or don't know what happened to all your settings, folders, pictures and documents. However, deleting the .asp.net account will take the blue screen away.
