    For a few years now I have been using WinXP pro to operate as a virtual pc to run a older cad program on my Windows 7 PC. Up until now I have been able to open the virtual pc by clicking the shortcut icon on the desktop and the program would open without having to log on with a password. Now, after clicking on the desktop icon the XP login window pops up asking for a long forgotten password. What steps can I take to either bypass this step or to reset the password? Below
    is a screenshot of the popup window which shows up on the virtual pc screen after the desktop icon is selected.
