One should never use an admin account. Use a limited user and if needed run-as to elevate the permissions.

We usually put an autologin in the registry. You'll have to look for that online as I forget what key it is under.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

As jefro rightly points out, you have risks you are not aware of concerning this request.

make a second admin equal account. I call mine backdoor. Write down the password and put it in a place you can find it.

It maybe the way back into your system that saves you from complete data loss.
web search safe computing/ proper account setup and follow the recommendations.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I have no issue with the advice already given. However, for those folk who find limited user a pain, the alternative on XP is to use Drop My Rights from MS and just run your browsers through it. It's kept me safe and I boot straight into XP:

If you do go that way it's a whole lot simpler than it looks. Just a two stage shortcut, first part to "drop my rights", second part to "your browser (or whatever)".

You hardly ever need to use the normal icon afterwards. About the only thing it won't do is get MS "Manual" updates.
