Here is a tip for those readers who have two (or more) computers networked together at home and are bothered by the Log On box that comes up whenever the computer is started. To cause the Windows Log On box to automatically proceed after a few seconds, you need to make some changes to your system registry. Click Start/Run, enter RegEdit in the “Open:” field, and click OK. Select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Winlogon and add 3 new string values. To do so, right click in the open area and add a new string value named AutoAdminLogon. Right-click on its icon and modify the value to 1. Repeat the same process, making another string value named DefaultUserName . Modify it by typing in the default users name. Make one more string value named DontDisplayLastUserName and modify the value to 1. Close the Registry and reboot. [Note: This does not work if your user name requires a password.]
