    I had Windows 2000 automatically logon for several years.
    (this is on a PC not connected to internet, and only accessible
    by me, so I consider this safe).
    But last few days, it demands a password when I boot.
    I go to Control Panel - Users and Passwords,
    I uncheck [users must enter a user name and password to use this computer]
    click OK then it asks for Administrator password
    But next time I reboot, I must enter a password.
    I return to control panel, and there is a tick there requiring
    user and password.
    So what is resetting this option to automatically logon?
