Logging into My XP computer

I need some help, basically i have a window's xp operating system at home and When i log into my computer i have to press ctrl+alt and delete to log in with username: Administrator and no password and just press Enter. When i go into the account settings i have typed a password for the administrator account and then turn it off. To see if the ctrl+alt page goes. As i want to turn on my computer and go straight to the desktop. But I don't know how to turn this off.

Any Advice on how to turn this off.....?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Enabling or disabling Secure Logon is really quite easy...

Important: You must be logged in using an Administrator account before proceeding with these instructions.

For Windows XP
  • Go to Start, then select Run
  • Copy the text in the code box below, then paste it in the "Run" window and hit enter
    Control Userpasswords2
  • The User Accounts window will now be open - Select the Advanced tab.
  • In the Secure logon section, click the Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete check box
  • Close the Secure logon window. The next time you reboot, you will be prompted to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to log in to your computer.
