Disable Password Prompt at Startup in Windows XP

Tagged with: , , , , , ,

Note: This post may be wrong. I’m getting a lot of complaints that this doesn’t work. See the Microsoft page on how to do this here

Disabling startup login prompt for password

  • Click Start and Run
  • Type “Control Userpasswords2” and press enter.
  • Uncheck the box for “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.”
  • Click Apply and Ok.

Please read the comments before following these steps – some comments have reported that this fix is causing a few issues.
