What to do ,can't log on password required


You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.
The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route: Reboot Windows in Safe Mode. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2 Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Good luck!
Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.


You can reset a lost or "forgot Windows password" with 4 methods below:
1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like "Windows Password Breaker".
4. Re-install. Will lose data.

3) Then under the Pick a Task heading select Change the way users log on or off.
4) Tick the box next to Use the Welcome screen.
5) Then click apply. Password or not when your computer starts up it will take you to the welcome screen where the user can select which account they want to log into.

Computer log-on


Boot windows in "Safe" mode by holding F8 key while turning computer on. Choose "Start windows in Safe Mode" option. From this mode, you might be able to return computer to previous restore point. If that doesn't help try running virus scan software or Lavasoft's Adaware, found at; http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php
hope this helps

Opening extra windows


Your system is infected with virus so your system has to be disinfected from safe mode with command prompt.

1. To disinfect the virus please download the latest sdat????.exe from this site and save it C:TEMP

2. Now restart the System and press F8 key
3. Select Safe mode with Command Prompt
4. Then change directory to C:TEMP
5. There type the filename and give the parameters as follows:

C:TEMP>sdat5372.exe /e

After few seconds in that directory you will find some files that extracted from the dat file.

6. Give commands as follows:

C:Temp>SCAN /all /adl /clean /report Report.log

This will clean all the virus in the system.

Hope this will helps you..

If this works please comment me.....

Forgot administrator password...plz help "No Windows Xp Installed"


Okay, first of all the admin password is usually blank so just try to log in without any password at all. Next if that doesn't work Reset the password by opening safe mode and logging in as your normal user and remove the password from the Administrator account and then it should work. If it doesn't just tell me and I will give you an alternate way in.
