    Hi there!

    I'm on my first adventure with an iMac and Parallels Desktop 6. So far everything went smooth. My only problem is, that Parallels automatically logs in with the Administrator account. I need another account to be logged into Windows, but I cannot find a way to change the Windows user account.

    Anyone knows a sollution?

    Thanx, B.

    Me too!!!!

    I'm having the same problem. I created a second user account that matches my "other" Mac user account. I can switch to it and home folders map appropriately. I just can't make it stick. It always reverts back to administrator next time Windows 7 is loaded

    I found a solution for the problem - at least in Windows XP. Open Start menu, select Run, in the Open box type "control userpasswords2" and press enter.

    Mark the check box "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" and klick OK.

    Now, the next time you start Windows it's asking you for a user and a password.

    Hope that helps...

    Hi! I agree with Borjoyzee, the most common solution for this case. Cheers! [​IMG]
