Remove XP Sign-on Box

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?

To make logon an unattended process:

Click [Start]

[Run]

and type control userpasswords2

Click [OK] Then [User Accounts]

On [Users] tab, clear the [Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer] check box.

Click [Apply].

Click [OK].
