One of our reader mailed us the following problem:
Windows XP logs me into the administrator every time instead of the account I created with administrative rights. I do not want to log into the Administrator account.
But why windows XP logins to default Administrator account?
It happens due to the auto-login has been enabled for the default administrator account in windows, because of which windows XP logs into the administrator account every time.
Simply we can say the auto admin logon feature is enabled.
Let’s see how can we fix it.
