Boot up

Posted: 01-19-2008, 11:19 PM
Seems that now when my PC boots up a screen comes up with two icons, one with
my name and one labeled administrator. I must now click on the icon with my
name below it to finish the boot. This has not happened before, and wastes
boot up time since I am the only person that uses the PC.

How can I undo this?
