You can go to Control Panel>User Accounts and set up a standard user account, under the individual accounts you can make that account not password protected.

It is annoying but it is best to have a non-admin account that you use for cruising the Internet. (The theory is that any malware that gets loaded on a non-admin account has a harder time changing the registry.)

You can boot, whether Admin or not, without a password screen.

Bypass The Windows XP Log On ScreenTo make logon an unattended process:

Click [Start] [Run] and type control userpasswords2 Click [OK]
The [User Accounts] Property Sheet displays.
On [Users] tab, clear the [Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer] check box.
Click [Apply].
Enter a user name and password that should be used to logon automatically in the dialog box that appears.
Click [OK].
Go to [Control Panel] [User Accounts] [Change the Way Users Log On and Off].
Uncheck [Use the Welcome Screen] and [Use Fast User Switching]
