Vista keeps auto login in after sysprep is run

I am using sysprep for vista and I created a answer file using the step by step guide at http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista/en/library/12265a2d-e0e6-4ca6-aa02-df4f68a5a8a81033.mspx?mfr=true.  After I run the command sysprep /oobe /generalize /shutdown /unattend:sysprep.xml the system shuts down.  I then boot it up again and the OOBE runs and then reboots.  This time when it comes up it is in audit mode and every time I reboot it after that.  I have narrowed it down to the answer file section for Microsoft-Windows-Deployment and the Reseal mode of Audit.  If I change this to OOBE then I get the Welcome Wizard upon boot up.  What I want is for the system to come up in normal mode and let the user login for the first time.  I am sure my answer file has missing or wrong component that is causing Windows to login in audit mode. I have included my answer file, can someone point out my error?

I solved this on my own.  I removed the Microsoft-Windows-Deployment component and added the component Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup under oobeSystem using the following elements:
<HideEULAPage>true</HideEULAPage>
<NetworkLocation>Work</NetworkLocation>
<ProtectYourPC>3</ProtectYourPC>
<SkipMachineOOBE>true</SkipMachineOOBE>
<SkipUserOOBE>true</SkipUserOOBE>

Since I have already set all the entries OOBE in the answer file I believe that it is ok to skip the OOBE process.
