    I recently added an admin user to my comp. and the problem is that now when i reboot i have to either select admin or myself. i do a lot of remoting to my comp when im away and if i need to reboot im gonna be stuck because the comp will not automatically reload my profile. If there is no way to do this, how can i delete a user from the comp. Ill just get rid of the admin user.
    Thanks in advance,

    If I am understanding you correctly, I think this will help:

    From an Administrator account, click Start, Run and enter CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2. Remove the check mark from Users must enter a username and password and click Apply. Follow the prompts.

    See if that helps. Good luck! :)

    Dowload Tweak ui then extend the logon section and check the box for auto logon. As well, under power options and advanced tab uncheck the "prompt for password box"
