    Although this is not recommended due to security risks and opening up your account to anyone who can get access to the computer, you can achieve what's requested like this:

    1) Open the command prompt as an admin
    2) Type "netplwiz" and from the Users tab uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer."
    3) Reboot

    ** Source **

    Edit: Looks like I was a bit late :)
