Why does windows ask to me log on to my only account?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
There's 1 account on this computer, and it's not password protected.
It shows the user select screen and requires me to click on the icon to log in.

I usually power it on do something and comeback for it to fully bootup. Now this thing is stopping it.

Any idea why?

Its by default.

Click on Start and then enter the following command in the search box:

netplwiz

Press the ENTER key.

This command will load the Advanced User Accounts control panel applet.
2.

In the Users tab, uncheck the box next to Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
3.

Click on the Apply button at the bottom of the User Accounts window.
4.

When the Automatically Log On dialog box appears, enter the user name you wish to automatically login to Windows 7 with. Then enter your account password in the two fields where it's asked.

Click the OK button.
5.

Click OK on the User Accounts window to complete the process.

From now on, when your PC starts up, Windows 7 will log on automatically.

I noticed that VMware made an account on its own. So that may have the reason it all started.

Thanks!
