Loading Problem



Just wondered if anyone can help me with this:
I am running XP Pro on a simple peir to peir netword with my desktop and laptop.
Now I want both machinces to load up and ask me to log in. However I dont want users without a password to be allowed in. I only want the 1 Admin account and no guest's allowed.
Currently on my Laptop, It loads up and doesn't even ask me for a login and goes straight into windows. How can I configure both machine to have just 1 Admin account and if no one has the password for that then they dont get access to the computer?
Thank for your hlp in advance :)


Come on people, someone must be able to help me with this? If you can't tell me how to get it so no-one can access the PC without a password, can you at least tell me how I can set the login screen back on my Laptop as it boots straight into windows?

Any help is appreciated :)

on the laptop make sure that you didn't use tweakui or such to set it to autologin,

and if you didn't, then goto start, control panel, user accounts, change the way users logon and off, and make sure use the welcome screen is checked

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
