    We bought this computer from a guy who really played with his computer. It starts up skipping the login screen and logging on as administrator. To use my account, I have to log out of admin, which brings it back to the login screen; the admin button disappears. How can I make it so that it doesn't login as admin upon bootup???

    Hi rslnerd


    Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

    Start > Run
    Key in:
    control userpasswords2
    Click: OK

    Highlight the User Account that you want Windows XP to automatically login.
    Uncheck: Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer
    Click: Apply
    The Automatically Log On window will appear, again verify the correct User Account is showing, if not, key in the correct User Account.
    Input your password or leave blank.
    OK, OK to save and close.

    Restart the computer to test.

    Let us know if that works for you or not.
