Configuring auto login in windows XP can save you a lot of time required to enter a password every time you start your computer.

and hit enter.
Step 2 – Configuring User Accounts
With that done, the User Accounts window will open up. Over here, un-check the option titled “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer” and click on Apply.
Step 3 – Finalizing Settings
Now you will be required to specify the log in details of the user which you want to be automatically logged on as. Once you enter the details here, the setup will be complete.
