Skip Welcome Screen [only one user]

By olli.coker@conocophillips ·
Ok. I give up. Somehow with all the patches from MS, the welcome screen has come back to haunt me. I seem to remember it was pretty simple to get rid of since there is only one user on this WinXP Pro computer, but I cannot find the silver bullet. Help?

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.
In the dialog box that appears, clear the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer check box, and then click OK.
