Windows XP Auto Login

Windows XP Auto Login

You can configure Windows XP to automate the logon process if your computer is not part of a domain. Computers configured in a business environment generally have a domain and for those machines the option “Users must enter a username” does not appear because a password must be given to access the local area network or domain.

  1. Click Start, click Run, and type control userpasswords2. This is a shortcut instead of having to click on Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts.
  2. Uncheck the “Users must enter a username and password to use this computer” check box.
  3. Click Apply.
  4. Enter the user name and password you wish to automatically log on with, and then click OK.
  5. Click OK again and you’re all done.

This feature allows other users to start your computer and use the account that you establish to automatically log on. Enabling auto logon makes your computer more convenient to use, but can pose a security risk since anyone can just turn the machine on and access your files.

Project Fit with Joel Comm – Day #6 & 7

Day 6 – Sunday, went to yoga in morning, did not go to gym in the evening, as it closes too early and had to attend to some business.

Day 7 – Monday, yoga in morning, business all day, did gym in the evening. Precor 546i, 30 minutes plus 5 minute cool down, did 2.67 miles and pushed heart rate up past 155 for the whole time except the cool down, actually got heart rate down to 118 during cool down this time.

I jumped on the scale and noticed I have not lost weight, this is day 7, perhaps just built some muscle so far. Be well.

Project Fit with Joel Comm – Day #4 & 5


Day 4 was a Friday before Yom Kippur, Jewish holiday and fast day. When preparing for a complete fast (no food or water) I usually go through a few things in my head but then the whole day is almost over but this time I was able to prepare a bit. I went and did my usual Yoga practice and afterwards had a meal replacement smoothie and 3 bars, one antioxidant, 1 probiotic and the other a Kashi bar. Then I had a large meal for lunch which was a vegan burrito wrap with salsa and chips and was so hungry I only had water until 6:40pm came around when the official fast began.

Day 5 – Yom Kippur, did not do any physical exercise or food or water, broke the fast with some vege/noodle disk and a Usana shake made from Nutrimeal and some fruit. Plan to do Yoga tomorrow morning and hit the gym in the evening. Be well.
