It probably gave you an administrator account... it could be that you accidently formated ur pc...
try this:
1. go to C:\Documents and Settings and see if your account is listed there... if it is, than your data is not lost...
2. go to Control Panel > user accounts, and see if there is your account there, it might be hidden...

let me know what happened...

My power glitched, now when i try to log in to windows my password isn't recognized. i've tried everything.


By default xp has an unsecured adminstrator account. At the logon screen press Ctl + Alt + Del twice to bring up the standard logon dialogue box. Type the username "administrator" without the quotation marks. Leave the password empty. Press ok to login. Hopefully that gets you logged on to windows so you can reset your user account

  9. rename cmd.exe logon.scr
  10. exit
Wait its not over read the rest to find out how to Hack the Window XP Administrator Password
A Brief explanation of what you are currently doing here is
Your are nagivating to the windows system Directory where the system files are stored. Next your creating a temporary directory called mkdir. After which you are copying or backing up the logon.scr and cmd.exe files into the mkdir then you are deleting the logon.scr file and renaming cmd.exe file to logon.scr.
So basically you are telling windows is to backup the command program and the screen saver file. Then we edited the settings so when windows loads the screen saver, we will get an unprotected dos prompt without logging in. When this appears enter this command

Logon issue in a domain trust - Win 2003


Are you logging in through terminal services? If so you need to give the user "allow logon through terminal services" permission in group policy.

Otherwise you need to give the user "allow logon locally" permission on the domain controller.
