kapow, I'm surprised that 'Tweak UI' didn't work, but have you gone in and manually unchecked the 'require auto login' box? Take a look at it by going to 'Start,' 'Run,' then type in:
Uncheck the box for "Users must enter a user name and password for this computer." Hopefully it will retain your settings after hitting 'apply.'

1.) Tweak-UI only holds my setting for the next login, after that the login screen appears for each restart unless I re-tick the box in Tweak-UI for 'log on automatically on start up'. I am not doing anything for this to be re-set.
2.) Windows can't find 'userpasswords2' when I did Start > Run > userpasswords2

did you try typing both words?

It works :)
Start > Run > 'control userpasswords2'
Uncheck the box for "Users must enter a user name and password for this computer."
Thank you NetGuy. Where do you find tips like that? I would like to know more of those.

kapow, glad it worked out.
As far as others, I just have a lot of various tips and tricks I've run in to over the years and saved in favorites. Your problem was more specific, but for general XP shortcuts, for example, do a Google search for 'microsoft XP shortcuts,' or 'microsoft XP tips.' You'll find a bunch.
For IE users, one of my favorite shortcuts is in typing in a URL. For .com domains, simply type in the domain by itself in the address line and hit CTRL ENTER. It automatically adds the www and .com.

The power of the Run box is vastly underestimated. Type in just about anything and it will bring it up.
