Question User Accounts Problem on WinXP

Hiya all...

On my computer, i have 2 user accounts, "Jamie" and "Administrator".
I never use the administrator account, its just there.

If I put my comp on standby or somthing, when I get the accounts screen, only the "Administrator" account showing up? Why?

Is there anyway to make my "Jamie" account show up on it?

When I look under the user accounts box on the "Administrator" account, only the admin account shows up. But when I look under the user accounts box on my "Jamie" account, both show up? What is happening?!?

Thanks
Jamie

Go on to Admin, And make the User Jamie Admin, then delete the Admin Account.

No can you make the ADMIN ACCOUNT limited, you need to be logged in to Jamie to do that!
