Help: Password protected account does not prompt for password at b


D

Greetings,

Due to severe hacking of three machines where I was working with an account
with full administrator privileges I learned that it is best to not use that
for web access and configure a single account without privileges.

After password protecting the accounts with administrator privileges, as
well as the account without, I have noticed that when I boot, I am
automatically logged into one of the administrator without typing a password
although I assigned one...

How do I make sure that when Windows XP SP3 Home Edition boots, I will have
to choose an account and type in the password to access it?

Thank you.

Jean-Pierre

Ensure you do not have it set for automatic logon.
