Not entirely sure about XP

But try something like:
Control Panel...USer and Passwords

Look arouund and somewhere there should be a checkbox labelled something like, User must enter a Username and Password.

Apologies if this doesnt work...good luck

go to control panel/user accounts click on your account and then remove my password you will be prompted to enter it do so then go to change the way users log on and off and tick the box that says use the welcome when you log on just click your name.but this means others can log on to your computer now.
