I am a new user of XP and until a couple of weeks ago when I booted up I just clicked on my account name and went straight in to XP. Then I tried to be clever and , following an article I read in a mag,I changed the way I logged in to one which required me to insert my password first. Now I want to change back but can't do it . Can anyone tell me how I can get back to the original password free method? I have tried HELP gut canot find it. Thank you

then double click on user accounts and change account - change way log on and change password. Type in your existing password and where it says new password leave it blank. Alternatly if you can remember when you set the password up do a system restore to before that date. If asked for a password just leave the box blank and click ok.
