bypass login on XP Professional

I am using Windows XP Professional and I want to bypass the login. I followed a procedure to let me do that and it worked, except that it logs me in as administrator and I have to log out and log into my own profile. How do I configure it so that it bypasses login and logs into the profile that i want it to?

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and check the value for AutoAdminLogon is set to 1. Also check the value for DefaultUserName is set to the user name that you want it to log on with and also the AltDefaultUserName is set to the same above user.

Thanks

Hello,

Start>Run>control userpasswords2

This will allow you to select the login name you wish and to bypass the login screen.

Cheers,
Mak

It was an accurate answer, but if were a novice I would have been confused by the instructions. The commenter instructed me to "Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE...". I recognized this as a registry entry so I knew to run "regedit" but a novice would have been at a loss. Thanks eXpeLLeD for your reply.  It solved my problem.
