If you want to further speed up the Windows 7 boot process you could configure the computer system to automatically logon the user.
This is especially for computer systems that are in use by only one person as it would not even be a privacy or security risk.
All that needs to be done to configure Windows 7 for automatic logon is the following:
Press Windows R. A command box should appear. Type control userpasswords2 and hit the enter key. This should display the User Accounts screen in Windows 7. Select the user account in the main table and uncheck the “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer. A click on the Apply button will open the Automatically Log On window. Enter the password and confirm it to add the password to the system so that it does not need to be entered during windows logon.
What’s the effect of that change on the system? You know that Windows displays all enabled user profiles on startup. Here you need to select one of the user accounts to log into that account. You may need to enter the password before you can log on to the system.
That’s good for security on multi-user systems and public systems, but not really necessary on single user systems instead. That’s where the above change helps the most.
This method basically removes the need to enter the user account password during logon. This method has another effect if only one account is configured on the system. If it is, the logon screen is bypassed altogether to speed up the loading of the Windows desktop even further.
It again needs to be pointed out that this raises security concerns, considering that anyone can log into the user account since no password is required to log on.
