W2k pro - user

I have WK2 pro, just installed it. I went to Admin tools and Computer Management to add a new user. When I restarted the computer, why it does not default or show that User name. It always show a box for Admin and password. Second question, How can I remove a" Log on to Windows" This is just for home use.

Control Panel > Users > check the box All Users Must Logon > click the user you want to be default > uncheck All Users Must Logon box > make sure the check box for auto logon default user is checked > click Apply.

Did that from memory, so it might be off a little. But basically correct.

once you have logged in with that user it should stay with that as the default last used log on yes?

You are correct. of course. My eyesight plays tricks, and I misread W2K Pro as "WXP Pro" :)
