  1. hi,
    I am running XP home edition. I have one account for my computer with no password but xp always loads the login screen and I have to click the login button for my settings to load. Obviously this is annoying because I can't just leave my machine to start up fully. I've looked in control panel,user accounts and there are two accounts my "owner" account and one called " Machine A". This doesn't appear on the logon screen and I don't remember creating it. It calls itself a "limited" account.

    Why dosen't this second account show up? Can I just delete it and my computer will auto login? Or is there another way?

    Delete it from user accounts

    or to require no password at log-in to auto log-in

    then go to start > run > control userpasswords2

    untick users must enter a username and password to use this computer

    No, you didn't create that ASP Net account- Microsoft did and put it on your computer! I removed it as soon as I found it on mine!

    Read the message of where to change this.I get 1 anyway.
    I think it's go to Control Panel/Users accounts.

    When you install .NET Framework from Windows Update that ASP Net account gets installed. At least that's one way it get on there. I just delete the account too, then I don't get that login screen.
