You can try to do a restore to a time earlier than 5 days ago, or you can just go into the control panel and set up the user accts again.

try starting your computer in safe mode. if you see anything that you havent installed, delete it and try restarting. if it doesn't work, then you probably will need to do the system recovery

I cannot escape other user screen. I have no username or password for it


Boot in Safe Mode, login as the default administrator in there and delete all the user accounts except yours and the guest one - do this from Control Panel - Users.

I Friend is trying to Recover his HP Pavilian a305w. On the boot there an windows/recovery option. When he choses recovery ,he tells me that it say somthing like it can't access recovery files. And...


Hello,

Just try best file recovery tool which will help you to recover files from Windows hard drive. Couple of days ago, even I was stuck under similar situation and was thinking how to recover deleted files in Windows 7? Then I tried best file recovery software which really helped me to get back all my important data stored on the Windows hard drive. I think you should also try the software once.

Good luck,

System won't go past profile page..stuck


It seems that the Guest account profile is corrupted because of which you are unable to log in as like in previously.

In the Profile Login page, hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will give you a window where you need to enter the User name and Password.

Enter the User name as administrator and leave the password column blank if you have not set any Password to the administrator account or enter the Administrator password if you have set any.

Now once you are loged into the Administrator account, create a new User from the Control Panel > User Accounts.

Set the required limitatios to the account like limited account or administrator account and log off from the administrator account.

Now, you should have the newly created user account available in the login page. Select it and you should be able to login.

I put a password on my computer & then made a Guest Acct and i forgot my password. Is there anyway to get it reset or something?


log in as an administrator account then from there you can delete the guest account and create a new one.

if you do not know the administrator account then you need to go into safe mode for the computer. to get to safemode, just press F8 while the computer is booting up until you are given a menu. From the menu, simply select "Safe mode" and then login to the un-passsworded admin account. once you are inside just delete the guest account there and create a new one.

Powerup password don't know bought at yard sale


Power up your 'puter and press f8 to enter windows in safe mode.When it boots into safe mode go to your start button... select control panel.. and find user accounts . Enter and make yourself a new user account.. select administrator account . Close and and reboot the computer. Select your new user account and it should boot into windows. Go back to user accounts and you should see your account.. a guest account.. and the account of whoever owned the computer before you . That account will say password protected. select delete user account and click on the old users account . Windows will say it will delete the account and all files of the user. if it asks select ok and be patient . It will be a few minutes as windows deletes the account. Do a final reboot and the old account and password should be gone.
Good luck.
