In XP Home:for some reason after bootup it doesn't go to a user account login screen, it goes directly to my own desktop. I want to set it up so I can log in as Administrator or my own account. How can I get it to show both accounts for a choice of either one at bootup?

If you only have one account on the computer then by default Windows will log straight into that one.

The Administrator account is designed only to work in Safe Mode and Windows will refuse to use the Administrator account in normal mode.
