There are utilities, but make sure that they only get used on your system, not a work system.
tweakUI will do it. It is easy enough to find.

If your the only user, you could go into CONTROL PANEL=>USERES AND PASSOWRDS and uncheck the box for "users must enter password..... ". That will bypass the whole login screen.

hope this helps.

Autologon Enable for win 2000

Locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Using your account name and password, double-click the DefaultUserName entry, type your user name, and then click OK.

Double-click the DefaultPassword entry, type your password under the value data box, and then click OK.

If there is no DefaultPassword value, follow these steps to create the value:

On the Registry Editor menu, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.

Type DefaultPassword as the value name, and then press ENTER.

Double-click the newly created key, and then type your password in the Value Data box.

If no DefaultPassword string is specified, Windows automatically changes the value of the AutoAdminLogon key from 1 (true) to 0 (false) to disable the AutoAdminLogon feature.


Double-click the AutoAdminLogon entry, type 1 in the Value Data box, and then click OK.

If there is no AutoAdminLogon entry, follow these steps to create the entry:

On the Registry Editor menu, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.

Type AutoAdminLogon as the value name, and then press ENTER.

Double-click the newly created key, and then type 1 in the Value Data box.

Quit Registry Editor.
Click Start, click Restart, and then click OK.

After your computer restarts and Windows starts, you can log on automatically.

If you want to bypass the automatic logon to log on as a different user, hold down the SHIFT key after you log off or after Windows restarts.

Note that this procedure applies only to the first logon. To enforce this setting for future logoffs, the administrator must set the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Value:ForceAutoLogon
Type: REG_SZ
Data: 1


Good Luck Lee
