    ok guys, im usin CoolMon and i got the extension to show the weather, but to make it update, u gotta set it as a scheduled task. to set it as a scheduled task, u gotta put in the login/password for your account. im the only user on this comp, so i dun use a password, but if i set one, will i have to type it in each time the comp starts? and will i be able to disable the password later on if i decide to?

    if your account is 'password protected' then yes, you will have to login each time XP starts.

    If you set it to auto-login, you don't need to type the password each time. Check the options in:
    Start>Run>control userpasswords2
    It's in there somewhere.

    Yes, you can disable the password later.

    Yes, there is an option in TweakUI too. That would be the easiest way to do it. :)

    Do you really have to put in password to set up a scheduled task? Tried it on an account with no password, didn't insert one when asked, but clicked 'next' instead. No problem.
