    I am the only user of my computer. It has decided I should log on when I 1st start up the computer. How do I turn off this feature? I know it should not be a big deal, but it really irritates me to have to log on. Thanks in advance

    Go Start | Run and type in "control userpasswords2" (no quotes) and hit
    Enter. Uncheck the box that says "Users must enter a user name and
    password..."

    That is cool. I didn't know you could get to the Control Panel through there. Thanks.

    I see this is solved, but a small addendum - I have seen this happen after you install or update the .Net Framework from Microsoft. The installation creates another "user" on the sytem. I have always just gone into that user management and deleted the .net user. It's never been a problem for me.
