I am using Logmein Rescue to access some of our computers with unattended access. They are all Windows XP with 2 user profiles (1 admin & 1 Valued Customer) both with Adminstrator rights.

The problem is when I do logmein rescue unattended everything works except if I tell the remote user to login using safe mode, the computer on their end will reboot in safe mode but since there is 2 user accounts it sit
at the prompt showing Administrator and Valued Customer so they would have to be there in order to pick Valued Customer for the remote session to continue which obviously they are not if I am doing unattended mode.

How can I tell XP that anytime it boots in safe mode to login as the Valued Customer. It is not a situation where I can remove 1 user we need them both on there. The valued customer has no password. When I boot in normal mode it automattically logs into the windows without the prompt. But in safe mode it always forces u to pick the user.

Let me know if u have an idea how to force XP to pick a specific users and auto login to that user.

Hmmm...to my untrained eyes, that looks like a LogMeIn problem, not a Windows problem.

Have you tried LogMeIn Rescue Help or LogMeIn Community ?

talked to them a long time but it is a setting or an issue with XP. Even if u are not on logmein when you boot a xp system in safe mode and u have 2 users it pops up with the box shwoing both users and u must select one which makes it not work right with Logmein on the safe mode options. So I am just looking how to force XP to auto boot into one specific user when u do safe mode. Even if u are logged into that user and force safe mode it still boots up and ask u to pick a user.

I don't have a multiple user system...but it seems to me that there is no way to force a user login choice in XP, other than to remove other users from login capability. I don't believe that there is any way in Windows to elect a "default ueer login" when multiple users exist...if there is, I would think that it poses a security risk.

I don't think that any of the following represent what you want...but take a look.
