Do you mean you want the PC to log in by itself automatically without the need to sign in? Try googling "Automatic Login" for Windows, there are just a few registry keys that have to be changed to enable this. :thumb:

found what i was looking for thank no i mean this Enable the (Hidden) Administrator Account on Windows 7 or Vista - How-To Geek
that and if i use admin at set up this does not work os i am hoping it means that admin is the master account. what a pain in the but. thank guys:thumb:

Try this: Autologon from Sysinternals.

It was written a long time ago; don't know if it still works for Windows 7.

In reply to your first post, I used this: Make Windows 7 or Vista Log On Automatically - How-To Geek

I don't believe it's really good practice to use the built-in administrator account as your only account. It's hidden for a reason...

The first account that's created after installing Windows 7 is an administrator as well. Just disabled UAC and you're set.

huh... just remove the password on your account. And make sure there is only one account, and bam! there you go

ya it turns out there was more then 1 problem i have been able to work it out thank all and yes you guys are right it's only good to run the hidden account if you really need to and i did so it's there if you need it. :biggrin:
