Hi RockinRobin...

Are you looking for a password to prevent others from logging on to Windows or for preventing the machine from loading Windows without a password?

Open Control Panel and double click on the "User Accounts" icon. Click on your user account, then click on the link to "Create a Password". Give you account a good password...one that you will remember...and "Apply" the change.

Reboot...you should now be asked for a password to log on... :whistling:
