Your comments on the following statement:

Use a Standard User Account. Don’t use the Administrator Account when using your Windows XP computer for working or browsing the Internet. Use a non-admin Standard User Account to do so.

If the sole user of a PC, still best to have a separate "user" account. The "Administrator" account then will not be as vulnerable to hacking attempts.
This link explains better, and does apply to all versions or types of OS..

It is a way of bring protection to teh admin account, and is useful if the user account gest damaged for virus, hardaware failure, etc. In case of such an event U can always log as Administrator and recover the information from the damaged account

Welcome to Motherboards.org, tmogkawaii.
What 'guidance' do you need? There are a lot of pros here on the Forum, and can guide you with resolving any computer problem. Sometimes, a simple solution solves a difficult issue.
If problems with a computer, post the details of the system build. This makes it easier for diagnostic suggestions.
1) Motherboard model
2) PSU type/wattage
3) CPU version
4) OS version
5) description of problem.
As to passwords and security locks, we do not provide help on those issues, unless of a general nature to all models.
