Start - Run and run
Make sure that 'Users must give username. . . ' is checked - if not,
check and Apply.
That should now give you a normal Welcome screen, with any user accounts
and with 'Administrator' hidden if you have a user account with admin
status. If you do not have such an account, make one - keep
'Administrator' in reserve.
You can now if you wish run that again, uncheck that box and Apply,
there select the account that you *want* to have as autologon - don't
just accept Administrator by default
