Hi,
I have reinstalled windows xp SP2. After installing xp when I was installing the drivers, the driver software installation (Realtek Audio Driver and MS DirectX 9) asked me for the user name and pasword since it needs to restart the system after installing one driver. I gave the administrator user name and password. After installation when ever I log into the system the system ogs me into the Administrator account without any passwords. I have setup a user with administrator previlages also. But the system by default boots and logs in to Administrator account. Is there any way to resolve this without reinstalling xp. Thanks.

where'd you get the software installation from? i've never had a software install ask me for my login and password. seems fishy.

To resolve this behavior, turn off the automatic logon feature and require a username and password at logon:
Click Start on the Windows taskbar, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.
In the dialog box that appears, click to select the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer check box, and then click OK.
To work around this behavior, log off from the Autologon account, and then log on by using the new account.

Thanks.. It worked like a charm.. Now my system accepts the password at the login screen..

BTW.. It was a motherboard driver installation CD that requires the user name and password for frequent uninterrupted restarts
