I have windows XP Pro, that I have just re-loaded, Everything is fine except
for a couple of anoying things,
1. When I boot up the computer automatically starts up in in the build in
administrator account, instead of putting the user page up, can anyone tell
me how to stop this happening.
2. The computer does not ask if, and or remember passwords.

1. Go to Start | Run and type in: control userpasswords2 | Ok.

2. On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password
To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

3. In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user
name and password for the account you want to be logged on each time you
start your computer.

You can accomplish the same thing by:

Download and install tweakui for xp and use its auto logon feature.

Lastly you can add the Dialog box that comes up when running control
userpasswords 2 to the Control Panel with the following tweak:

Add Control User Passwords2 to the Control Panel (Line 1)

I think you have missunderstood, When I startthe computer I want the welcome
window to come up with all the users names on it. After setting the user
accounts up, you shouldn't see the on board administrator account again. But
this computer starts in the administrator account whenever you start the
computer.
