Just a quick question, on Windows XP Home is it advisable to add a password for all of the family's users on the system because some do not have a password?

If I were one of the parents, I would set the PC up so login is required and then I would make myself the administrator and assign everyone else their own password for separate limited user accounts.
Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.

All you need really is to password the administrator accounts. With that, you can remove the other user passwords.
