    I don't know what happened, but suddenly when I perform a restart on my
    Windows XP Home machine, I have to click my name to complete the reboot.
    Prior to recently, the system simply rebooted and that was that. I never had
    to screw around with this clicking identity business. Is there, there must
    be, a way to totally disable this? I've been in the Control Panel/User
    Account area and there is little help there, I can stop the welcome screen,
    but still have to endure the password box that appears. There is no password
    setup, so it's simply a click. I've also noticed that another"user", namely,
    "ASP.NET Machine A..." also shows up here, any idea what this might be?

    Any help here is appreciated.

    'ASP.NET Machine A' wouldn't be a bad start.
