    Acquired a computer with 3 user accounts, Administrator, Guest, and X.
    Administrator and Guest have no log in password but X does. Upon
    start-up it automatically goes to X account which I dont know the
    password. Is ther a way to view all accounts upon start-up?

  2. Peaches,
    (from windows help and support / automatic logon)

    In the Search box, type
    control userpasswords2
    and then press ENTER, If you are prompted for an administrator password or
    confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    Clear the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer
    check box, and then click Apply.

    ...... in your case you want to disable the automatic logon so CHECK the
    check box and click Apply
