    I have a P2 366MHz 128MB laptop running XP Pro. I followed a link on one of the Forums (I cannot remember which) which set up the computer to automatically log onto the Administrative Account.

    I now regret this change but cannot undo it. I have tried Tweak XP but even this will not change it.

    Can anyone offer me a solution?

    many thanks

    in run type

    control userpasswords2

    then tick the box that says users must enter a name + password 2 use this computer:cool:

    Many thanks Henyman. I know I am physically very old (pension next year) but I did not realize how dumb I am getting. I used control userpassword2 to make the original change but completely forgot. I only made the change a couple of days ago.

    Is there a reference/link giving me more inf on commands such as the one above or must i pick the up piecemeal?

    Happy New Year.
