and I just press enter and it boots up. I have created two account(me and my daughter's) and would like it to give me the option when I boot it up. There is no option, nor can I "SWITCH" to her account. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Thanks for the link, I will try this and report back. The funny thing is I have created a few accounts, I just access them.
Thanks again!

Worked like a charm!
Next dilemma, for some reason, SPYBOT does not load under the limited access account. I can see the program under programs, but it does not show up on the lower right hand tray. Thanks!

Was Spybot installed for "all users"?

I think so. I actually uninstalled it then reinstalled it. There was no option for ALL USERS. Thanks!

I guess that I'd try creating a new lim access account...to see if it behaves the same way.

If not, that would seemingly indicate possible corruption in the existing account.

If it does, that would point to the account creation process itself as the hurdle.

I would be willing to bet, that it doesn't work in a limited account by design since it can change system settings.
