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.

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."
