Windows 7: Stop having to select a user on startup.

Stop having to select a user on startup.

Hi,

For some reason, every time I reboot my computer I need to select the user to login to. This is weird because:

1. There are no other users on the computer
2. The only user is an administrator
3. the User has no password


Any ideas?

I tried that on a couple of machines. yet they still have the same issue. I tried using the netplwiz method, and using regedit.
