I installed windows XP SP2 and it is running well. However I forgot to add administer' password. (User password.)
I find it necessary to have a computer user password now as there has been trespassing in my computer. How do I add this password now. Can it be done.

Thank you Sir

YW Tanaba.

Also, you really should have SP3 installed.

Use Windows Updates for minimal install or to have SP3 available for future needs ( such as adding/slipstreaming to an existing XP CD ) download from here.
