    Aragon,

    There may be a way within the GUI, but I've always preferred using the registry.

    Run regedit and go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

    You can then edit the DefaultUserName and DefaultPassword values with the account you wish to you. Let me know if you have any further questions.
