Completely bypass standard user password in Vista

By jfurtado ·
Okay, here goes. I'm the computer lab administrator at a senior's rec center, and I've run into a Vista Home Premium issue. If I share the two printers in the computer lab and connect to them without using a "local port" (\\computername\printername) it takes up to three minutes to print, and that's assuming nobody crashes the program they're printing from first.

So I've set up the local port, but for some reason, even though Password Protected Sharing is turned off, it requires the "All Users" (Standard User) account to have a password on all of the computers, or it just gives a generic error in the printer queue.

My conundrum is this: I don't want to confuse these seniors by requiring them to login to the All Users account with a password, but I want them to be able to print without waiting forever. Is there a way that I can set the account to log in automatically, even from the Welcome Screen, without requiring them to enter a password?
