Remove XP Sign-on Box

  jimforrest 17:18 PM 31 Dec 11

From other threads you will know that I have put XP onto an old Vista computer (now working a treat!). The only niggle left is that I set it up with me as Administrator - but no password. Each time the thing starts I get a sign-on box with the password blank, so I just press Enter and it completes booting. How can I stop the box appearing?
