Getting a windows logon that slows down my startup. How do I get back to no logon?

After installing Visual Studio .NET, I am getting a windows logon that slows down my startup. How do I get it back to no logon?
I assume you mean that the operating system is now requesting that you log into the machine. Instead of having you mess with the registry keys directly to reset this, you can download AutoLogin from It's a free program that will let you reset the logon keys as well as turn them off.
