    Texas, where else?

    System Preferences - Accounts

    highlight 'Login Options' on the bottom left - you'll probably have to click on the lock at the bottom and enter your password to make changes

    then on the 'Automatic login' drop down menu, change it to 'Off'

    Good move - and welcome to the forum.
