    Windows 8 Consumer Preview

    Auto Login?


    Hey everyone. I just recently installed the consumer preview on my machine. I have been logging in with admin, but recently made two local accounts so my wife and I can have separate accounts.

    When the OS starts up, it always logs straight into the Administrator account. I tried setting it so a password was required but all that does its tried to log in and yells at me because no password was entered.

    How can I stop the OS from trying to auto-login entirely and just stop at the login window??
