Cannot Create New User Account

My account is a full administrative account. I need to create another user account for a family member.

I go to the User section of Control Panel and add the new user, give the account a name with NO password and set to standard user.

However, whenever I reboot my Windows 7 Home Premium machine, I get a red x with a message that says - "The username and password are incorrect."

I can OK and continue to boot to my account. If I "Switch User" I can log in to the new account successfully.

However, I continue to get the error message on boot instead of seeing the screen that shows both accounts so you can choose which one you want to log in to.

Any ideas?

Make sure you disable the ability to auto-login to an account, because that sounds like what the problem might be...
