    Administrator accounts appears to logon automatically

    I just received my new pc with Vista ultimate. I added a user for myself, but
    noticed that when the pc booted it automatically logged right into the
    administrator account without stopping at the welcome screen to ask which
    user i wanted to be.

    I figured out how to disable the administrator account and it stops at the
    welcome screen on boot. The problem is that it tried to login into the
    administrator account and failed. I then have to use switch user to go to the
    other account i created.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    press Windows + R and type
    control userpasswords2
    and press Enter. What do you see there? The check box "Users must enter a
    user name and password..." should be checked.
