    Two things:

    1) Make sure that your user actually has a password.

    2) If you want to switch off the welcome screen (that allows you to click on the user you want to log in as) Then:

    start->control panel->User Accounts

    Click on "Change the way users log on or off"

    Unselect the "Use the Welcome Screen"

    Hope that helps
