This must have been posted a 1000 times but I can't seem to locate the answer to my question on Passwords for XP. A friend of mine recently gave me his older computer before leaving for Iraq. Stupid me just thanked him and put it in my storage closet without first trying to boot it up. Well, My CPU went down so off to the closet I went to get my friend's CPU. Booted it up til I got to the Password part that lets you into the desktop. I just hit enter and nothing but a 'Please retype passord. Somebody once told me that one could get rid of this problem in set-up. Is this true? if so How? Many thanks to all of you with great minds and a gift for CPU knowledge.
