Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I recently acquired a virus even though my McAfee is on and updated daily along with my spyware and a firewall. I tried to remove the virus from safe mode to no avail. I am running Windows XP and when I rebooted my system a log in screen appeared. Unfortunately I do not remmeber my password for this computer as I haven't had to use it in 5 or so years. My problem now is how can I bypass the password if possible and how do I restore my system to an earlier date if I cannot get past the password? I know that his can be done by using the F keys but I do not remember exactly how it works. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!
I don't normally deal with this type of problem, but the following link has quite a few ways to deal with this dilemma:
I have not personally tried any of these solutions, so use at your own risk.
If you REALLY need to gain access to info on that drive, I suggest connecting it as a SLAVE DRIVE on your working computer and running a SCAN to kill virus, along with copying your needed info to your pc.
If no info needed, just reformat and install XP again. Only sure way to have ZERO virus.
