    This is probably quite simply solved, but for the life of me i can't remember how, I'm using windows xp pro and all of the sudden when ever i first turn on my pc it brings me to the log in screen where i have to click my name to log into windows, I'm the only user so theirs only my name to click on but it never used to do this, it used to log straight on automatically and bring up the desktop without me having to click my name. I have completely forgotten how to switch it back. Can anybody help?

    I'm on my Vista laptop right now so this is from memory.

    For Windows XP

    Click Start
    Click Control Panel
    Click Users
    Click Change the way Users log on or off
    Uncheck Use the welcome screen and use fast user switching.
