    Hi,
    I have problem in User Accounts, I am Computer Administrator (and account name is Administrator) and have been using password protect but when starting up windows, it won't stop at log on page to enter password, it log on to my accout automatic. And in user account page there are just 3 choices to choose which are Change my password, Change my picture and Setup my account to use a .Net passport. I just format drive C and Install new window xp. So how could I have 5 or 6 choices in User Account and enter my password when starting up windows.

    Thanks,
    Jarky

    Try this; press Windows key + R and type control userpasswords2 Highlight the account in question and check the box “Users must enter a user name and password” Click apply and ok and restart the computer.

    Here’s an article on Administrator and User Passwords in Windows XP
