Hello Jeap, and welcome to Seven Forums.
In addition, the tutorial below may be able to help get him to be able to log in automatically again.
If he has no password, then leave the password fields blank while doing the tutorial below. If that doesn't work for him, then create/change password for his account, then enter the passoword in the fields while doing the tutorial below. Log On Automatically at Startup
Hope this helps,
