    Yeah, put the password on, download TweakUI (google it, it'll be the first link or two) and have it auto log you on with your password..

    If you have Windows XP, you can run "control userpasswords2". It will allow you to set a password for a user that is logged in automatically when windows starts. Be sure to disable the welcome screen as well.

    nm guys... i found a way to do it...

    start... run... type in "control userpasswords2"

    and uncheck the box that says users must enter a password to log on.

    Please tell me you searched for the answer and found it...
    I know it's been posted here a couple times.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    With windows xp, you must have a password in order to utilize the remote desktop feature. If you don't have a password, it won't let you log in remotely.
