On bootup my PC seems to want a password - yet I've never had a password nor encountered this issue before.
I can't get windows to boot so I can't access the START menu.
Even if I press ENTER without any pwd entered it still asks whether I've forgotten it.
How on earth do i get around this stupid XP feature & log on?

I'm running the latest dual core PC with all the bells & whistles....

This is the same PC as my last question - the one that the DVD drive kept opening. Although I followed all the advice given on this site - it still seems to be intermitent - running well at times & opening constantly at other times...

Thank you to all trying to help - your suggestions are MUCH APPRECIATED.

Select last known good config (after you press F8) after you reboot? See if that fixes it
