Try Control Panel/User Accounts/Change the way users log on and off/Tick Use Welcome screen and Fast user switching/apply

If it's XP Home the password is supposed to be blank by default. If it's Pro, you will have been asked to set an admin password during the installation. I use my Pro-equipped PCs with the admin account only, without any problems.
