    The autologon stopped working after I downloaded the recent updates. I did some research and found out it was because an update installed a new user account. I followed Miscrosoft's instructions for editing the registry and that didn't work. So I deleted the new account. Now autologon works but it logs into Administrator instead of my account. How do I set XP to autologin to my account?

    Thanks. The auto logon was checked but set for the wrong account.
