Removing password on startup

I have recently updated from Microsoft an update regarding security, now everytime i start XP it asks me for a password, any ideas to get rid of this message.

you do not state which version of windows xp you are using, if it's home this clip is from another forum quote "To log on to Windows XP without going through the Welcome screen, you must have exactly one user account defined and you must have the Guest account turned off. That's the arrangement you had originally. A recent Windows XP update screws up this plan by adding a virtual user called ASP.NET, which isn't useful unless you're a programmer. Assuming you're not, just delete it."

try this go to
1. Control panel

2. User Accounts

3. 'Change the way users log on and off'

4. Tick both the 'Use the welcome screen' and the 'Use fast user switching' boxes.

5. Click 'apply options'

6. Restart.
