My new, clean XP installation is misbehaving. Thoughts...?

If you let the screensaver throw you out to the welcome screen, or you log out, it insists you give it a password to log into any account. Problem is that the user chosen password doesn't work, and it's password protecting no-passworded accounts, including 'Guest'.

It's also bleeping by itself every now and then (every ten minutes or so).

WTF is going on?
