Hi tony 2 steps to fix
1) go to control panel and user accounts, find your account and remove the
or if you DONT want to remove the password do only the following second step
2) in the search box after you press start write the following:
control userpasswords2 and press enter
there you will uncheck the option that says "users must enter a password"
and press apply
then it will give you a box to enter which use you want to auto- login..
so enter the name, and the passwords if you have retained a password,
if you removed the password, just leave it blank
tell me if this helps
