Default How do I change the default logon

Something changed in my configuration and now the admin is the default logon and it does it automatically. Now I have to log off as admin and logon as my profile every time I restart. I know there is a simple solution for this, but I cannot find it. Any help would rock!

instructions for 2k, i think xp is the same way. this tells you howto turn it on. If you change the autologin value from 1 to 0, it should force a login.

Another graphical way to do this is through a powertoy that Microsoft puts out called 'TweakUI' which is free. It then shows up in your Control Panel. Here is a link:

If you like it, try out the others. I tend to use the CMDHere powertoy quite often.
