Actually its my friend that logged out. She has XP and is the only user. She has no "guest" log on. And she is apparently the "administrator". While she has never used a password, after accidentally logging out of Windows, she keeps getting the log in screen. She has tried the password blank, control-alt-delete 2x, changing the name to administrator and nothing has worked. Any further expertise that we can draw on from this group? All suggestions are appreciated.
