    I recently had to reset my password because I couldn't remember it (I was installing and up date). Now it will not do a auto log in; How do I get it to do auto log in again.

    System Preferences - Accounts - Login Options - Automatic login

    See how that goes. :)

    Yeah, I have this set but it still stops at the log in screen. Do you think I need to do a reinstall of the os (I hope not)?

    Did you adjust the password in that section.

    i.e. Select your username and then a box appears asking for the password, I guess this is still set to the old password and as such is not correct when the computer tries to login and thus it doesn't

    We should be able to sort this out without reinstalling the OS. :)
