  • This solution is great. Another solution is to use a tool called TweakUI from microsoft which allows you to directly login into an account, even if you have multiple accounts. Although not completely helpful in real-time, but is useful in certain scenarios. You can also use TweakUi to unlock many hidden features in Windows XP.
