    Go into Control Panel then User Accounts. Look for the link that says change the way users log in or something similar. There is a setting to diable the welcome screen.

    There should also be a setting to go directly to a default account if you do not have a password.

    Start | Run...
    Type "control userpasswords 2" and hit Enter
    Uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer."
