The only time I've seen a password suddenly needed [other then a possible virus] is if "Netframwork" is installed.
It creates a small user account of it's own which triggers the need for a log on.
If you have a fresh install of XP from a older disk you need to update with the newest service packs.
You have to have at least SP1 installed to install SP3 .
