XP Logon

By myplums ·
I have an XP home SP2 box which always will logon to the Admin profile after boot sequence. Even if you change the logon preferences via CP it will always default to the admin profile 1st. Have tried reinstalling SP2 and looked in the registry to find workaround to no avial. Any help appreciated.

HKLM\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\winlogon

autoadminlogon should be set to 0
if defaultpassword is there, delete it

You also have to change the way that users log on in the control panel.
