When you install a version of Windows XP, Setup prompts you for a password for the Administrator account. After installation is complete, the password provided during Setup is applied to the account.
The administrator account and password created during Setup are used to log on in Safe Mode only. To create a password for user accounts, double-click Manage Users in Control Panel.
