    Logon to a default user account

    Hi

    My Vista system has 3 user accounts with 1 of them password protected. When
    my computer is booted up I would like it to startup in one of the
    non-passworded accounts without going to the Logon menu first.

    Is this possible?

    Hello,

    press Windows-key + R, type
    control userpasswords2
    and hit Enter. Then, uncheck the "Users must enter a ..." checkbox.

    Greetings,

    Go to Start, type cmd, then type 'control userpasswords2' and enter.
    Uncheck the 'Users must enter a password to login".
