Windows logon

By computab ·
Windows XP Home: I read an article somewhere recently to avoid the logon screen, going direct to the desktop. This required a single edit in the registry. I forget how to undo this. Does anyone have the details, please?

This is not to do with a password, which I dont have. It needs a registry edit.

Go to control panel, select User accounts and under the users tab, create a user. Then click the Advanced tab and check the box 'Require users to press CTRL+ALT+DEL. Restart machine. If you are connected to a domain, all you have to do is RClick My computer, choose properties, and under the computer name tab, select change. restart PC to save changes. Hope this helps.

This has to be a registry edit, except I dont think I can even do that. My account is limited, I can't install or uninstall, can't change anything in the control panel.
