xp asks for password

I had this problem years ago and got an answer - which I lost - in the form of a dos command. Following the installation of a new program XP starts, asks for a password but accepts OK. I want to stop XP asking for the password as I like to just switch on and have the computer run up without stopping to ask for something it doesn't need. None of the windows commands work but I know the dos command did - - why did I lose it :(

Start - Run - control userpasswords2. Untick the box "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".
