How is cron started

At the moment, my piece of crap mobo wants to screw up every now and then.
I'm looking for a different mobo and processor.

Tonight, for example, it decided to croak and reboot.  So, I wanted to turn
off having to log in so that my stuff will restart.  I don't remember how
I set XP to cause the login to appear.  I've only gotten it to remove my
password, but I still have to click on my login name (the only name).

Well, I discovered that cron didn't start.  Because of it, a job that was
supposed to start, didn't :-(

Just where is cron stated in an XP SP2 system?  I installed it to work for me.

Thanks.
