login windows appears , still in the username is an account

This a custom machine with I3 cpu processor 3gb of ram, win xp pro spk3
when i got this computer who ever installed the OS added and account with administrator rights and the username is russ no password, ok such computer is for someone else so i created another account with administrator rights and a password so after that i logon into the computer with the new account and then i delete from user accounts in control panel the account for russ (cause was not needed).
Now each time i restart the machine in the logon screen username appears the username of the account i deleted, so this is annoying cause the new user has(to delete from the username textbox the old username and type her username, is there anything i can do to fix this ? Probably in the registry keys right ? if you can point me where in the Reg. Keys i have to go and delete i will really appreciate it.
Thanks A LOT

that is acutally a new situation to me, i personally have never seen this before unless this pc logged into a domain. have you considered reloading the OS? just backup the drivers with driver magician (i think thats the program) as a .exe, and install your OS back into the machine. think of the speed bonus you would gain even if the pc is somewhat clean Happy
