XP Pro Administrator question?

I did something the other day that now makes me log in as an Admistrator when I reboot my computer. Is there anyway to get rid of this so it just automatically goes into the original startup. Thanks

Go to Start->Control Panel->User Accounts
Click on 'Change the way users log on and off'
Check 'Use the welcome screen'

That should do it.

Thanks. That is exactly what I wanted but now how do I transfer all my files and folders from my Adm profile to my personal profile? Thanks for the help so far

You need to copy over the contents of your Adm "desktop" folder to your own desktop folder. The desktop folder is under your name folder in the Documents and Settings folder on the root of the C drive
