Windows XP Problem

Tried to use PC this morning but just getting a black screen with a blue and white requesting a username and password. What is this? I have not set a password and what username is it asking for? Is it the one I called my User Account?

Try tapping the F8 key while your computer is restarting, that should bring up the start-up menu with a few options displayed, choose the "Last known good configuration" option, see if it then boots normally.

Click Start, Run and type CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2, and click Ok. Select the user account from the list (to which account you want to automatically logon). Uncheck Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer option, and click Ok. Type the user account password and complete the process.

For Windows XP Home, don't try to auto-login as the built-in Administrator, as you'll receive a restrictions error.

You should have started your own thread but click here anyway.

Turned off PC and turned on again and got the desktop straight away with no problems.

So can anyone tell me why the PC decided to request a username and password in the first place and what I can do to stop this happening again?

suejac start your own question do not post in someone elses as they will get an email everytime someone types in anything and of course the answer to your question is nothing to do with I,Me and Myselfs question.
