Default Windows is skipping the logon

Windows XP Pro jumps right into the desktop instead of asking for a user password. Anyone know how to change that? The only two things I know of are:

Control Panel > User Accounts > "Change the way users log on" > "Use the Welcome Screen" is checked.

Start > Run > "control userpasswords2" > "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" is checked.

Any other help?

Yes, if you don't have more than one user other than Administrator, and that user does not have a password, I think it logs you right in. I may be off on this.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Yeah, that was the reason.

I thought for sure I had a password set up, but I guess it didn't stick from when I installed Windows.

Figures it would be something lame like that...

Thanks guys.
