Going to need more of the story to fix the problem.

If anything their default would be blank/no password.

Computor desktop was frozen. Could not open control panel. Used system mechanics software and removed the most recent registry dated feb 2010 and installed the most recent one. Computor not working after that. Found my reinstalation disk for home edition. But could not find my key. Found a key on net. Completed installation. 2 Xp versions now. Cant get past the first screen which asks for a password. Now in adminisreator also asks for password. There.

Take it back to the PC company and pay someone to fix it, because if you do any more to it you'll root it even more than it already is.

radar51, Feb 28, 5:58am
yes safe mode gets you to administrator which needs a password

radar51, Feb 28, 6:01am

Its mine. Bought from previous owner . Ex farmers with 5 year extended waranty now well expired. About 7 yrs old. Not worth stealing.

Come on Todd. I would appreciate an answer. I suspect that It will mean wiping all mydocuments though.

0800xford, Feb 28, 6:21am

I had a great friend who said mess with it as much as you like to learn. you can do no damage. Unfortunately he move tomelbourne. I could email him.

a simple google search for a password cracker will sort you out.

Had to deal with this with a mates computer. His kids password protected their computer and then forgot the password.

Download "cracker software" onto a CD
Autoboot CD from your CMOS
follow instructions to change the password
Re-boot
