I don't if I can post here for this problem. When I did the tutorial and log on automatically it took me to the windows basic theme. I can't change it back to customize. Let me see if I can go back to other way to log on with my user account without password.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1

That's good to know.

I was planning on running Folding@home when I'm off somewhere and realized that Windows has to perform updates as well and needs to restart the machine and the other program simply can't run from the login prompt. Now I turned automatic log-in on, now how do I turn it back off?

Hey Honeycomb,

Checking the box and clicking on OK (step 4 in Option One) will turn it off for you.
