Er! getting a bit stuck myself now. I don't use a password, so have not tried the procedure. But looking through the help files, it does say that you need to log on as administrator, and it is a different method depending on whether you are on a network or stand alone PC. J.

stand alone and I am the computer administrator.

Sorry, I'm new to XP myself, so not sure what to suggest next, don't worry though as someone will have the answer. J.
