    Default Account (Win XP Pro SP1)

    When I boot my PC ,Windows automatically logs on to the Admin account. ( even though I have a password on the Admin account it does not require me to type it in)
    I then have to logoff the Admin account and logon to my main account. (which is the account I use for all my work)
    I have to type the password for my main account (which I would rather not do but since want to use the task scheduler I must have a password, scheduler will not work without a password)

    The problem is that I want Windows to logon to my main account by default not Admin. (preferably without a password)

    Here is my setup:
    I have the Admin account shipped with Windows and I put a password on it
    I have my main account that has Admin rights and has a password (the account I do all my work under)
    I have a Guest account that is turned off
    I have the ASP.NET Machine account
    I have Use Welcome screen as yes
    I have use Use Fast User switching as yes

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks very much

    Under User Accounts in Control Panel, click on Change the way users log on and off. Check use Welcome Screen, and see if that doesn't take care of it.
