    We rec'd a computer that has xp professional ont it. Of
    course there is a log on screen to access windows. Is
    there any way to delete this feature or bypass it? Maybe
    change the user & passowrd w/o going into the
    administrator screen?

  2. Click Start, Run and enter CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2 Highlight the username
    that you want automatically logged on and then uncheck Users must enter a
    username and password........... Click Apply. On the next dialog enter the
    password for that account, if any, and OK your way out.
