You have to provide your own password, which you also have to enter when logging in (unless you have enabled "log in without password").
In case that you forgot that one, you can reset it with the procedure shown in http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Carol J Tallus for more information if necessary.
