Quick query my memory has gone blank I have used "control userpassords2" in XP to auto login to the admin account without using a password.Does anyone know how to change the default account that it logs in with?I want another account to auto login... Obviously I cannot delete the administrator account and just have the other one setup.
XP home or Pro ?
The Admin account.....Is this the account Called Administrator or was it the account set with a name and admin rights?
This is the first account create on install, yes the administrator account, pc is wanted to log into another account.
Go Start then Control Panel then User Accounts. Create a new user without a password and reboot it should boot straight into the user account and hide the Admin account.
What does control userpassords2 do ? i just typed it in the run box and nothing happened.
Should be "control userpasswords2" soz for the typo. This is used to remove password login prompt, therefore making pc login automatically.
the run command "control userpasswords2" is Win2k version of WinXP's "User Accounts" option from the "Control Pannel"...
so that meant to be ACOLYTE
Just create an account from the "User Accounts" option in the Control pannel.... Then use the run command "control userpasswords2" again and select the account you wish to "auto-login"
