Windows 7: Trying to reboot in Administrative side with reboot

Trying to reboot in Administrative side with reboot

I'm running windows 7 on my computer. I've got two users setup. One is for the family which when you reboot and/or just start the computer with the on switch it automatically loads this with out any password. But if I want to get into the Administrative side of the computer I have to let the family side load then click on shutdown and then click log off. Then the window will close and the screen will open up with the option to click on Family icon or the Administrative icon. If I click on Admin icon I have to login, all's working well. My question: While adding new programs from the administrative side and then it wants you to reboot, it will automatically load backup on the Family side. Is this OK for installing software, or is there a simple way in this instance to reboot and have it give me the option to load the Administrative side instead of going into Family side? Thanks

Hello Rick,

If the program needs to restart the PC, then it's usually only to apply and finish up the installation. It usually doesn't matter what account you log on to afterwards, but it would be best to log back on to the account you installed the program from to make sure.

If you like, you could turn off automatic logging on to an account at startup to be able to select what account you want to sign in to at start up instead.
Log On Automatically at Startup
In addition, you could use "Switch User" or "Log Off" instead to log on to another account without shutting down the computer.

Fantastic, I tried it, will be great when a program wants to reboot during installation. Thanks
