 +====== Windows 7 auto logon ======
 +Perhaps you have (like me) configured a Windows box as a media center in your living room. In order to conserve power, I shut the PC down, when not in use. Power up is so fast that I don't see the point in putting it to sleep. Especially when the USB IR receiver is still powered on and i can turn on the PC via remote. When the PC powers on, I don't want to enter the password (since I have disabled Windows Explorer and replaced it with XBMC). This is what you must do to auto log on an user.
  
 +Click on Start and then enter the following command in the search box:
 +<​code>​
 +netplwiz
 +</​code>​
 +Press the ENTER key.
 +
 +This command will load the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel applet.
 +
 +In the Users tab, uncheck the box next to Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
 +
 +Click on the Apply button at the bottom of the User Accounts window.
 +
 +When the Automatically Log On dialog box appears, enter the user name you wish to automatically login to Windows 7 with. Then enter your account password in the two fields where it's asked.
 +
 +Click the OK button.
 +
 +Click OK on the User Accounts window to complete the process.
