Set a computer running Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Not Windows XP Home) to automatically log on. This bypasses the Welcome screen.

Note: Enabling the auto logon feature on a PC will allows other users to start the computer and use the account that is set to automatically log on. It is not recommended using auto logon on publicly accessible computers or portables as it poses a security risk.
