Windows start up welcome blue page

By jdpowers41 ·
when i first got this computer, the guy i got it from had it set up to where you could just turn it on and let it load until it was ready to go. i have recently done some ms/windows updating, which has cancelled this out. now when the blue welcome page comes up, i have to click on something to get past it. how can i get around this, to the way it was before? obviously it can be done, i just dont know how.
does anyone out there know this secret trick?

No secret

You want to start up with no interactive logon at all, and no welcome screen?

If you have created a password you will have to remove it first.
Logon and press Ctrl+Alt+Del if you are using XP Pro. Select Change password and type in your Password and leave the next two fields blank.
If you are using XP Home open Control Panel, Users and select the User and click on Remove Password. Next

Press the Winkey + r

Type in the following command and press Enter

control userpasswords2

Highlight the user you want to log into automatically, then uncheck the box for "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer".

Click on Apply and you'll be asked to verify the username and password to log in automatically.
Click OK and restart your System, you'll automatically be logged in without having the Classic prompt or Welcome Screen.
