    I found out how to bypass the screen that asks for the password, but
    now it automatically starts administrator.

    How can I set windows so it opens a different user account when I turn
    on the computer?

    thanks.

    Try start, run
    control userpasswords2

    then tick the box "Require a username and password to use this computer"
    Click apply
    Untick the same box
    Click ok and it should ask you which account to logon as on startup?

    HTH,
