Desktop and taskbar are being hidden by white screen


First you have to get administrator privileges (if you already do, Ignore this) but when starting up your computer get into recovery mode (Esc then F11, or whatever you have to do in the startup menu). If you have HP support on your computer, click the center panel and go into command prompt cmd prompt you cd to System32 folder on windows 7 (like C:\Windows\System32). you do that, then follow this order very carefully: copy cmd.exe cmd1.exe then rename sethc.exe sethc1.exe then rename cmd1.exe sethc.exe then get out of recovery mode, but typical people have NORMAL COMPUTERS. when you try to recover, hit cancel when asked about system restore. When the error message pops up, click on the details, open the text doc, and click save as. In that window, you browse to C:\Windows\System32 and basically do what you can do in the cmd prompt. copy cmd.exe, rename sethc.exe, then rename cmd.exe's copy to sethc.exe, then reboot normally. trigger sticky keys (hit shift many times) which brings up the command prompt. You can type explorer.exe into it to bring the taskbar up. click on the show desktop button

I set my admin account to limited user and i cant open it anymore..please help to retrieve this user account.thank you..


i assume you are using Windows XP.
try log off and login as "Administrator", if you remember the password. Try blank password first. if it doesn't show in the list, press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice and type it in.
if no joy, you can download this iso, burn it onto CDR as disk image, not data.
restart and boot from this CD, then you have the chance to change/reset/blank any user's password. but take care not to do other thing. follow the author's instructions.
good luck!

How to rename host in win xp using netsh command


windows key + pause key,
click computer name,
click change.
Restart PC
there may be a better way without having to restart but I haven't found it yet. For those who do not find the pause key: it has the same effect as right click on "My Computer" and choosing properties.
