recently I acquired a second hand computer, it is a 1Ghz XP pro Compacq computer. My problem is when I start up it goes directly to a user account that has few privledges. Is there a way to get the adninistrator account to show at start-up? If I can't do that I will have to have the hard drive reformatted. Any suggestions?
