Windows logs on automatically even with password!

  YinHoNg 09:27 05 Sep 2006

I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2. There were 2 users, e.g Bob and Jim, on my account, both password protected. But for some odd reason, Windows always automatically logs on to Bob every time on boot up..... even though he has password protected his account!

Does anybody have any idea on how to solve this?

Nope, noone was running tweak ui. I tried the first solution from that link Santos7 supplied and that has fixed the problem....ish.

Now, for some reason, it takes absolutely ages to even get to the log in screen.
I'm running a fairly competent computer:

Xp Pro,
Athlon 2400
1gb ram
40GB HD.

There should be no spyware, but i haven't yet checked for viruses.

Any idea why?
