    Login to different account on bootup (Pro SP3)

    A friend's XP Pro SP3 machine always boots into the "Administrator" account instead of his own personal account which has Administrator privileges. Consequently, he has to log off from the Admin account and then login to his own personal account. When the PC boots there is no option to choose which account to login to. And, when he logs off from the Administrator account and the login screen appears, only his personal account is displayed.

    How can this situation be changed so that on bootup it automatically loads his own personal account. There are no passwords created for either account.

    TweakUI XP lets you specify which user to log on automatically.

    Thanks... It's been so long since I've worked with XP, at least in this area, that I had completely forgotten about TweakUI. <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/embarrassed.gif>
