There is no room to enter a domain.

Your soln to my pc problem :even if you mistakenly joined a domain you can still log in through your existing id and password.
Once your press CTRL+ALT+DEL, you will see a login window with three fields namely: user id, password and Domain.
In the log in screen use the drop-down menu in front of Domain (which shows your new domain- most likey MSHome) and choose 'this computer'. After this, enter your old/existing user id and password and hit enter.
Please proceed to your system settings and change your domain back to Workgroup. Restart PC.

Hi,
I'm assuming that the operating system is XP.

Log in to your account as you usually would. Right click on My Computer and select Properties from the list. Click on the Computer Name tab. Where it says "To rename this computer or join a domain" click on change. A new window will pop up so click on Workgroup. In the typing plane if it say's MSHOME, delete that and type WORKGROUP make sure you type it in uppercase (capital letters).
When you've done that click OK.
The computer will tell you that you have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect so please restart the computer.

Once the computer has restarted you can check if the domain has changed to WORKGROUP.

Please post back if you need anymore help.

Regards.

Start > Control Panel > Search for "System" and click on it > On the left, click on Advanced System Settings > Click the Computer Name tab > Click the Change button > Click the Domain radio button > Add the domain name.

You will need to be a memeber of the domain admin group, on your server, to perform this operation. When you go to log back in, it should have the domain you entered, selected.

How to Upgrade Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition Profiles to Windows XP...


This guide describes how to upgrade a Microsoft Microsoft Windows 98-based, or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition-based client that has user profiles to a Microsoft Windows XP-based client.
The following steps enable the Windows 98 and Windows Millennium Edition (Me) profiles to be retained throughout the process.
Your best method to retain the profiles is to join the domain during the upgrade installation process.
Otherwise, you must use a workaround method to transfer the profile information over to the Windows XP profile.
During the upgrade installation process, at the networking section, the administrator is offered the choice to join a domain or a workgroup.
If you join the domain at this juncture, you ensure that all the existing profiles are migrated successfully to the Windows XP-based installation.
If you did not join the computer to the domain during the upgrade process, you must use the following workaround method:

Join the upgraded computer to the target domain.
All applicable users must log on and log off (which generates a profile).
Copy the appropriate Application Data folder from the Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me profiles to the newly created user profiles.

My daughter cannot remember password. is there anyway to override it or get into the computer to reset it without a disk password reset


Hi,
You can try the below option.
1. If the computer is in a domain, reset the domain user is and log into the computer.
2. If not part of a domain, login using any other user id (if exists) and reset the password for your id. 3. No you are the only single user, then reset the password if you've created any password reset disk. 4. If none of the above works, then the only option is to install the operation system once again. This will not affect any applications installed, if you are not formatting the disk before you install. Just install upon the existing OS.
Once logged into OS, then disable the password option from control panel -> users and accounts. So that it wont prompt for a password while logging int next time.

Please come back and vote for me, if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification. Thnx
