I am the IT admin at an embassy in Washington DC. My boss wants to create a logon password for his account, but it won't let him. The account is currently categorized as an administrator account. What is the protocol needed to create a logon password for XP?

Are you able to login to the computer and follow Sheharyaar's steps above? You may need to logon as administrator on the box if you remember the password that was used when installing XP for that computer if you can't login yourself.
