I am using windows xp home edition which has just been reformatted at the local computer shop, but now whenever it starts up it always goes to my user account where as before it give you a list of all the accounts on the computer, there are three user accounts on the computer i have checked all the settings in user accounts but nothing seem to make any difference.
Hi santos7 i have recreacted new accounts, this is weird if i am on my own account and i choose to log off it gives me the option of choosing the other two user accounts on the computer, but not at start up.
I tried it and the folling message appeared,this computer is running windows xp home edition, this snapin may not be used with that version of windows. to manage user accounts for this computer, use the user account tool in the control panel.
Hi santos was speaking to a neighbour and he suggested trying this Try Start -> Run, then type 'control userpasswords2'. Make sure that the 'Users must enter a user name and password' box is checked on the window that pops up. So far it seems to be working ok. Cheers for all your help.
