I have 3 accounts on my PC.Administrator,QuickSilver and ASP.Net.Using the run command control userpasswords2 I changed it to read Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer,NO.Now the Pc auto boots into the Administrator account(with nothing set the way I like it)automatically.I want it to go directly to QuickSilver account(admin as well with everything the way I like it) Any ideas as to what I have to do??? I'll keep googling and such;)

Tweakui is probably the easiest solution.

It'll let you specify a username and password that autologin.

You can do that or do this....

Start >> Run >> control userpasswords2

That one is more for Vista.

Failsafe...

1. Check the box, hit apply.
2. highlight the username you want to auto-login.
3. uncheck the box
4. hit ok
5. enter password for said account.
6. hit ok.
7. done.

This command was originally implemented in windows 2000, maybe NT4.

control userpasswords (win2k) = control userpasswords2 (xp) = control userpasswords2 (vista)


not exactly a vista exclusive feature.
