Hi, I have a new Lenovo SL500 with XP PRO.
When I purchased the computer, I was able to start the computer, go directly to the desktop where I would dble click the IE icon to get "open home page." That was it to get on the internet. Now when I start the computer I get a message from Windows that says that I have to use CTRL ALT DELETE to get to the Administrator log on. then anothe box comes up that already has my name in the username space. Without putting in a password, I hit the "Enter" button and I get the desktop so that I can click on the IE icon to go to my homepage.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Go to Start...Run...and type in "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes) and press Enter
In the window that opens, remove the checkmark from the box that says something about "users must enter a username and password...."
Click on OK to close the dialog (you may get a password prompt then).
