Default Logon question

I have my 3 computers hooked up to a router. On my main PC, I use to be able to boot up my computer directly to my desktop. For some reason now I need to click on my user id name to get to my desktop. How can I stop this from happening so I can logon directly to my desktop?

thx

I'm not sure, but this is happening because either:

A) You have a password set
B) You have multiple accounts

Under control panel > user accounts, how can I delete admin account so it doesn't show up on welcome screen upon bootup? I just want to bootup to my "scott" desktop account without having to choose between that and admin. Thanks in advance.

You need to have "Scott" user have administrater privileges. Then you can delete any others you want.

Once you are logged in as Scott, then all you have to do is click on the account that you want to delete and there will be an option to delete it. If you don't have a password setup, it should then boot straight to your desktop.
