I had a small problem in that I kept getting the Windows welcome screen come up ever few minutes when the computer was inactive. It was frustarting so my wife tried to fix the problem for me.

Now, I CANNOT log into Windows at all. The Windows XP screen comes on after starup without any options. Then, after pushing control/alt/delete, I get prompted as the administrator for a password. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT PASSWORD IS. When I re-installed windows a while ago, I seem to recall that I chose not to use a password for login. After all, it's a personal computer.

Will the administrative password get me in? If so, how can I get it? The PC is a Panasonic Let's Note series (Japanese model). I recently installed the Windows XP that came with the machine.

I appreciate your help!

If you didn't give it a password, just hit Enter and it should login
