How can I put a ADMIN password on a XP machine.

I want a P-word that must be typed before the machine will start up.

Thanks,
Jim

From HERE.

1.Click on Start and then Control Panel.

2.Click on the User Accounts link.

Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, double-click on the User Accounts icon.

3.In the pick an account to change area of the User Accounts window, click on your Windows XP user name.

4.Choose the Create a password link.

5.In the first two text boxes, enter the password you would like to start using.

Entering the password twice helps to make sure that you typed your password correctly.

6.Click the Create Password button to confirm your new password.

7.The next screen asks Do you want to make your files and folders private?. If other user accounts will be setup on this PC and you'd like to keep your personal files private from those users, click on the Yes, Make Private button.

If you're not concerned about this kind of security or this account is the only account on your PC, there's no need to make your files private. In this case, click on the No button.

8.You can now close the User Accounts window and the Control Panel window.

9.Now that your Windows XP account has a password setup, you must use this password to log on to Windows XP from this point forward.

10.Create aWindows XP password reset disk. While not a required part of creating a new XP password, I highly recommend that you do this.

A password reset disk will protect you from the consequences of forgetting your new Windows XP password.

Tips:
1.If you need a new Windows XP password because you've forgotten yours and can no longer get in to Windows, then you obviously can't use the method above.

You can, though, use a free Windows password recovery programto crack or reset the password even if you can't get in to Windows XP at all. You can then create a new Windows XP password using the instructions above.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....
