Best solution is 3rd party application here: Autologon

I would say the characteristics for the login would be in the Registry under winlogon. I would not mess with this though if you are not familiar with it and if you do mess with it, create a registry backup and a restore point. For the delay though, I dont know if there is a key for it.

Edit: site linked says registry location is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

You could alternatively, write a .bat file to count out 1-2minutes and then proceed with startup. you would put .bat file in Startup so it loads during startup. I dont know what the programming would be for such a batch file though. <This would be very technical. I would not advise if 3rd party app fixes issue.

Is it me or are the requests getting weirder every day?

Anyway I'm with Richard. Use a password! That way you're in total control of when it logs in. And you can have a single letter password (I think) so it needn't be complicated.
