Try Removing Login Password

Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security > Double click Password Policy > Double click Minimum Password Length > Reduce it to 0 (No password required) then OK.

Then go to Control Panel > User Account > Your Account > Remove Password.

If the OP cannot log in to Windows how can he access local security?

Hi Ditch999 - you've got a very good point there. And yes wis I do have xp pro - didn't realise the difference.
