    I just started using XP Pro, and I have two accounts: 1) the built in administrator account, 2) my own personal account with admin privileges.

    If I wanted to log-on using the "built in account for administration" how would I do that? When the log-on screen comes up, it only gives me the option of my personal account. Thanks.

    God Bless,
    David

    You can put the administrator account on the Welcome screen with a little editing of the Registry. It has been posted on this forums several times. But at the logon screen press ctrl+alt+del twice and you will get the old 2K logon box. Type the username and password for administrator.
