I have xp pro on my family's older dell, and it is working great. There is one annoyance i would like to fix though. When i turn on the computer, it boots up to the screen where you get to pic what user account you want to use. Well i only have one account (w/ no password), is there a way to make it automaically use the one account. I have xp home on another pc and it does this (only one account so it just automatically uses it). I am pretty sure there has to be an option in the accounts settings, but i cannot find it. Any help would be much apprecieated. Thanks.

I think from "run" in the start menu, type: "control userpasswords2" (no quotes)

I think there is an option in there to disable the login screen. I can't confirm right now because I'm not on an XP box.

Try disabling the guest account. Also, if you installed the Microsoft .net framework, then you also have to delete/disable the account it created.
