Sounds to me as if there is a power on password set, can you get into the bios? try pressing <delete> or F2, if it asks for a password then you will need one to access the CMOS, within the CMOS is an Administrator password as well as a power on or user password, those have to be cleared in order to boot or the proper password entered at start up in order to continue the boot process

Try safe mode with networking OR last known good configuration through Advanced Boot options (press f8 at boot to get there).

could be virus / spyware / junk related issue, run a scan with the antivirus, check the registry, unwanted programs, run a cleanup and clean msconfig too.

there is a way around this but the password was needed to turn the computer on in the first place.
there is software out there but i would bring ID with you and take it down your nearest computer shop to have it removed.

It keeps asking for current password i dont know it


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/
