remove the Administrator login from XP pro

by Johnsdad / July 3, 2006 5:07 AM PDT

Running Win XP.

I want to remove the Administrator login when XP boots up so I don?t have to stand there and hit enter to get to the desktop each time it boots or comes out of standby mode, and there is no password set anyway.

Thanks.

Rather than do that, why not change it so...

That action is not required?

"To disable password protection when a computer resumes from standby

1. In Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options.

2. Click the Advanced tab.

3. Clear the Prompt for password when computer goes off standby check box."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
