XP Pro SP2 Logon

  Quiet Life 23:47 21 Feb 06

I have just installed XP Pro SP2 and made my name as an Administrator with no password. A screen as below comes up.
Log on to Windows

User Name Administrator

On top of that an other screen

The system could not log you on. Make sure user name and domain are correct then type your password again-----------------

If I hit OK and then change Administrator to my Name and then enter nothing for the password then Windows loads.
I am the only user and wish Windows to load automatically without passwords or Welcome Screens (The latter is presently eliminated)
Help appreciated. I have not had a problem on this in previous versions of Windows.

To stop your system from displaying the Welcome Screen, go to "Start->Run" and type in "control userpasswords2" (but without the quatations). Untick the "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer" option and click OK
