Hello everyone, I Hope you are all well.First time on here asking for help so fingers crossed.
I had a password on my home comp running xp sp3 & decided to remove the password as it got a little boring waiting to type the password in as comp was booting up etc. After deleting the password I had, a few day later I decided to put a new password on, so I did. Next time I cam to enter the password it did not accept it, so after several attempts I went into safe mode with admin rights & deleted it again. I understand that once this had happened you cant use passwords again.
So is there a fix for this please. Kind regards to all & I hope I have posted this in the correct place, Tankie :)

You can set passwords and remove passwords until the cows come home. There is no limit, one only being until you're entirely fed up of changing it all the time :)
