Wish to set user at login using XP

Specs: Windows XP
After latest updates, XP keeps logging me in as administrator. I wish to switch back to the user before this happened. Thanks in advance for your time.

want to add that the user I wish to have at startup is an administrator also, the one that comes up that I don't want to use is listed as built-in account for administering the computer/domain in computermanagement folder

Try System Restore to a date when all was good.
That should remove those updates, and restore what you want.
Start >All Programs >Accessories >System Tools

Using System Restore too many times can cause
more harm than good. After doing a restore
that does not fix a problem, then UNDO the
Restoration, and try another restore point, or
just do the UNDO.

I tried doing a couple system restores earlier, along with some other things, but they didn't work. I ended up downloading Microsoft Powertoys TweakUI, after installation, in the menu I clicked logon, then checked log on automatically at startup and put in the user name I wanted . So far so good, hopefully this will help somebody else with the same problem. thanks for your time.
