Did a windows update, pc no longer auto logs me in.

Well I did some windows updates earlier, and now for some reason my pc is no longer logging me into the only user acct on this system automatically, it sits there at the choose user screen till I click, How do I go about setting it so that it'll auto login that user on boot?
