    Is it possible for me to setup my computer in such a way that it automatically logs into a limited account without any prompts? I'd like to do this in WinXP...

    set up an account with no password
    goto start > run > type control userpasswords2
    uncheck user must enter password- a box will come up with the user and no password hit ok & reboot....

    I strongly reccomend keeping all your accounts passworded, especially if you have a broadband internet conection. This provides a much higher level of security.

    you CAN have autologin even with a passworded account. All you need is a free Microsoft product thats part of PowerToys for Windows XP. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

    The one you want is called TweakUI, and allows you to set up the autologin on passworded accounts.
