My neighbor used Windows Update on her XP system. After it was over,
passwords appeared on all the user accounts so she can't use the
computer anymore. Is this side effect of using Windows Update familiar
to anybody? A remedy?

I have heard of similar a few times.
I am not sure what may have caused it.
Try leaving the password blank.

Otherwise:
