    I recently shut down Windows XP on a VirtualBox VM, and when I turned it back on again, it displayed a window in the middle of the screen, titled Log On to Windows, with the teal Windows XP banner on the top half and a username and password input on the lower half.
    There's a little Option button which, when clicked, shows a Shut Down button which displays the "Shut Down Windows" dialogue when pressed.

    Sorry for the long description, I don't know how to add images to my post. :(

    How can I make my way back into the system to change my password, and what can I do to prevent this from occurring again in future?

    And also, how do I add images to my post?
