Logon to Windows XP problem


T

Todd

When I turned on my computer after the battery had died,
the "Welcome" logon screen appears. It shows my account
and when I click on it, it will say "loading your
personal settings" and start to show my normal wallpaper
screen for a split second, but then immediately goes to
logging off and back to the "Welcome" screen? I have
never set-up a password for the Windows account, so when
I ctrl/alt/del and get to the login page, it shows my
acount name, but there is no password that will work to
log me in. What do I need to do to get to my control
panel and set-up the User Account with a password or make
the "welcome" page go away, since it never used to come
up? Thanks in advance.

Thanks, I am sure that is the problem. I am still having
trouble getting to the recovery screen, but I am sure I
will get it worked out. Thanks Again.
