DELL DIMENSION 8300- WANT TO GET RID OF PW ON STAR

I have a spare DELL dimension 8300 linked with a KPM switch and used it quite a lot until recently. I even left it switched on overnight. However, to keep it secure I added a PW to the start up screen and when I did boot up I just entered the PW from memory but recently I did some automatic upgrades and now cant get PW to work. I have now managed to get to setup screen and was wondering can I diable ALL PW's but unfortunately I have forgotten how to!!!

Help and if anyone confused post back.

Assume PW is password
Is this a windows startup password
or a BIOS PAssword
or a Hard pisk encryption password?

What operating system?

oops, sorry, its xp pro, and its the start up password, I was rushing! And I tried what I thought was the PW after I entered setup I disabled the pw bit. Its downloading updates at the moment.

So basically I just want it to switch on with no PW.

And thanks for replying.
