    Go to Control Panel > User acounts > Change the way users log on or
    off, and untick "Show welcome screen"'Next,look to the left of the page
    under "Related tasks" click on Manage Accounts,then on the right under
    "Pick A Task",click on "change an account" then click on your account
    (and assuming you have administrator rights)click on create a password
    and there you go
