HELLO THERE:
I would first use the f-8 key right when you see or just before the windows xp or vista ect ect shows up and than use the safe mode and than log in under the administrator option to get into windows.
than go to the password section and create a new one or just delete the old one and put in a new one and somtimes you can reenter the old one again and see if this will let you in now ok and you should be ok from there:
I hope that this is very helpful for you>
Best regards Michael

Someone have put a password on my hdd,so I can't boot into windows.can anyone help me


you did not stated where, is this on your computer? on the darddrive? on the operating system?

removing password from computer or harddrive is beyond scope of this forum. if password is on windows xp matter is relatively simple.

1. boot computer in safe mode (pressing f8 key during startup will give you choice)
2. log in as administrator
3. press "start"
4. select "control panel"
5. select "users"
6 . remove password
7. restart computer and use normally

if this do not work, find on the net any of free available password removal programs, create self-boot floppy or cd with program, follow instructions.

I forget my password in my computer number 5


if you do not run nuclear waste site, busy airport or similar, i do not see a need for password, especially on winxp which is so full of security holes that you can use it instead of a sieve.

start your winxp in safe mode (from cold start), punching f8 button during startup will invoke choice mode which will allow you to select "safe mode", go as an administrator.

in safe mode, go to control panel, then users, select appriopriate user and remove password from this settings.

reboot your computer and you should boot to your setup without password, if you wish, you can again install password.

if you put password protection on admin account, create boot disk on any of your other 4 computers with any freely available password recovery programs, set bios to start from cd and then run your computer from created cd, follow instructions and recover your password.
