    Auto Log on problem.

    Hi there I just upgraded to Windows 8 Pro x64 from Windows 7 Pro x64, Everything works fine except the fact that my computer automatically logs me in to my username. It is slightly annoying due to the fact I share my PC with the other house hold members, I've tried a few things such as using a password but it still takes me to my own username at first. It's supposed to be disabled by default which is abit weird.

    Did anyone else have this problem or do they have a solution to it, It would really be appreciated
