Ok, came to my newer Winxp machine and find I am unable to login. there are 4 users on the machine. Clicking on the name next to the little jpeg picture No Password set) and it just shuts the pc down and restarts.

All I can think is either a virus.

Is there a fix for this please, in a not to tech jargon.
