Try this for a start:

Control Panel, Passwords, User Profiles. Check All users use the same
settings. Do not reboot at this point.

Go to ControlPanel>Network
Choose Windows Logon as Primary Login

Open system.ini
Delete all lines under
[Password Lists]

No joy?

Go to Start/Find/Files or Folders, and type *.pwl in the 'named' field.
Delete the files with the *.pwl extension that come up.

Now reboot
You should now get the login box. Type your name and password or leave the password field blank for no password

Good luck,
