i'm the only user to my laptop running with XP Pro. should i login as administrator or should i create a user and login as that? which is better and what are the benefits? will logging in a user prevent me from a lot of applications? also, if i continue to use "administrator", can i remove the password? it's kind of troublesome i tried going to control panel >user account, then i press ctrl-alt-del to change password. i type in my old password and leave the field for new password blank, but it doesn't accept. what should i do? (i've checked the help file, but the task button (at bottom left corner of window) mentioned in the help file does not appear on my screen.
