Are you the only user of your computer with NT installed on it. There is a little known method which avoids you having to go through the standard NT logon procedure. Instead you just specify a user name and password with NTLogon and next time you restart NT, it will automatically log you in.
The enclosed zip file contains the NTLogon program and its help file. You will need the MFC DLL's already installed on your machine. If you haven't already got them on your machine (MFC42.DLL in your Windows system directory), then grab them from http://www.naughter.com/download/vcredist.exe
