How to have Win7 auto open user account

I would like to eliminate user accounts and have Windows 7 automatically open when machine boots up. I only have 1 user account-me- so how can I get rid of it?

Try this:

Goto your orb, type: netplwiz and press enter. Then in the window that pops up, uncheck Users should enter a username and password to use this computer, and then press OK. It should then prompt you for the user/password to auto login. That should work for ya.

Log On Automatically at Startup

Thank you! It worked just fine. My guess is that the majority of home users would like to turn off the user controls. I can see the need of it on a network or business environment but not at home particularly when there are no children around,

Thanks again!.
