To make logon an unattended process:

Click [Start] [Run] and type
control userpasswords2
Click [OK]
The [User Accounts] Property Sheet displays.
On [Users] tab, clear the [Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer] check box.
Click [Apply].
Enter a user name and password that should be used to logon automatically in the dialog box that appears.
Click [OK].
Go to [Control Panel] [User Accounts] [Change the Way Users Log On and Off].
Uncheck [Use the Welcome Screen] and [Use Fast User Switching]

at which point does it ask you? Is it at boot up (BIOS password with black screen) or at windows logon?
If it is at boot up you need to remove the password from the bios. That can be done in a number of ways, but if you can provide make and model details, I might be able to find you a 'how to.'

How to remove Windows XP password.

by andreaborman In reply to Remove password -Windows ...

If you are the only user on your computer you do not have to have a password. This is the same on Windows XP,Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you already have a password to remove it go to user account or administer account. Where it says change or remove password,type in your existing password and then where it says new password leave blank and click save. Or on Windows 7 go to remove password,type in your password then click remove password. Now you will no longer have to enter a password every time you start your computer or do anything else,such as change settings. If you are setting up your computer for the first time,you will need to fill in the short for,asking for your computer name. For example Ann or Fred etc,than where it says password,leave this blank,then give your email address,where it asks for it. At least,that is what I did when I set up my Windows 7 laptop. I have an administer account,which is also a user account. And I have never had a password on my account or computer. Also it is possible to set up guest accounts and other user accounts without having to put passwords on them. You just click the box of the account you want to log into on the screen. Example you will see your account and guest account displayed on the screen and if you wanted to log in to guest account.Then click guest account box and it will start without having to enter a password.
