    The Login screen only occurs because security has been set up, and at least one of the user accounts has a password attached.

    Do you want to remove security, or retain it but somehow get logged in automatically?

    It is possible to start the database with a shortcut that incorporates the username and passowrd into the command line.

    If you look up "Startup command-line options" in Help, you will find some examples of how to do it.
    Regards
    John

    I would like to remove security completly , so the login box does not appear.
    Is this possible?

    Access user security is a relatively complex subject - your simplest recourse would be to have the system.mda file restored. If not, you will need all the exact info used to create the original file, and you will need to recreate the file using that info. I would suggest you read some of the documents on the Microsoft Knowledge Base about the subject - you might want to start with our User Security Tutorial which points to several of them.
