Windows XP - Cannot access user name or adminstrator name to log in

Netflix made an adjustment to the profile so that I can view their movies on my PC. After they did this (can't remember what it was), whenever I would boot up my PC the Windows XP would ask for administrator password, I never had that before and of course did not have my password. I went into the same profile and deselected the Administrator, now, whenever I boot up the PC, it asks for me to click on user and there is no users to click on. How can I get back to not requiring a password to get to my desktop?

Have You Lost Your Windows Admin Password?

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press <ctrl>+<alt>+<del> keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.

My netflix screen comes up but won't do anything. ts is


Netflix offers users the ability to rent movies and TV shows through the mail on DVD or Bluray and also allows users to watch select shows or movies online using a computer or certain other devices.

Occasionally users encounter errors when attempting to log in to their Netflix accounts.

These errors can be as simple as an incorrectly typed password to more complex issues with the Netflix service itself.
Credential Problems

Many login problems are caused by an incorrect email address or password when attempting to log in.

This can be due to typos or other misspellings, or recent password changes that were forgotten. Netflix offers the ability to recover passwords and usernames via the "Need Help Signing In?" link below the login fields on the Netflix home page.

Clicking the link allows the user to recover her password by entering her email address, and also gives the option to advance to a second recovery screen if she does not have access to that email address anymore.

The second screen allows the user to prove her identity by entering the first name, last name and credit card number associated with the Netflix account.

Service Errors

Login problems occasionally occur due to errors with the Netflix service itself.

When these problems occur, a message appears that explains a site error has occurred, directing the user back to the Netflix home page.

The user should attempt logging in again in case of a one-time error, though site-wide service errors do occasionally occur.

Depending on the nature of the error, once logged in the user may experience problems when trying to watch movies instantly or attempting to edit his DVD queue.

Site-wide service errors do not affect the ability of Netflix to send and receive movies by mail.

Account Problems

If a problem exists with a user's Netflix account due to a failed payment attempt, the user can still log in but is directed to a page informing him of the problem instead of his standard account home page.

Until the problem is resolved, he will be unable to watch movies instantly, receive DVD or Blu-ray discs from the service and will be required to return any movies currently at his home to avoid additional fees.

Account problems can typically be resolved by authorizing Netflix to retry the last payment attempt on the user's credit card or by supplying a new credit card number for payment purposes.


Device Connection Errors

When attempting to watch movies or TV shows on Netflix-ready devices such as a Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 or Roku streaming media player connection errors sometimes occur while the device attempts to log in to the user's Netflix account.

These errors may occur because the Internet connection the devices use is not properly configured, limited bandwidth to and from the user's home or problems with the device-specific version of the Netflix service.

If the device cannot connect and log in to Netflix, the user should check the device's Internet connection and try connecting again later.

I have forgotten my password for logging on to windows xp. is there any way I can reset the whole computer and start over.


No problem! We can recover Windows XP admin password.
Just download our windows password Recovery Tool 3.0 to recover your lost Windows passwords.
How does it work?

Just use the box below to download the utility. This is a ".exe" file which will burn itself onto a blank CD. Then pop the CD into your locked PC, and
boot from the CD.

If you have an Internet connection on your locked PC then it will automatically upload the encrypted password to our server for decryption. Once
decrypted, we will send you an email advising you where to log in to view your Windows password.

If you don't have an Internet connection to your locked PC, you can extract the encrypted password to a USB stick and upload manually to our website for
decryption.

It supports usb flash drive too.

How can i get in to my windows xp i lost/forgot my password. cd-rom is not working


Install a working CD-ROM drive.
Put your Windows XP disk into the CD-ROM drive.
Boot the computer from the CD-drive.
If you are very careful, and read the installation questions carefully,
and respond accurately, you can install another copy of Windows
onto the 'C:' drive, AND CHOOSE A FOLDER NAME THAT IS *NOT* 'C:\WINDOWS'.
Eventually, you can copy all your files from your "old" MY DOCUMENTS folder to your "new" MY DOCUMENTS folder.

I have a dell latitude d610 lap top


Based on the build of a D610, I am assuming you're running Windows XP. I'm not sure your hardware can support Vista. That model was built before Vista was available.

That said, go to Start-Control Panel-User Accounts. Most likely a setting in there was changed, and my first thought is that it may have been after a Windows Update, in an effort to increase security.

See if the user you're trying to login with even shows on the list. If it does, click on it and change the password to <blank>.

If that user no longer shows then you will have to rebuild the profile for that user. I will caution you that if you have to rebuild the profile, you would want to make copies of the data attached to the old profile. You can do this from Windows Explorer. Start by making sure you can view all files. Then navigate to Local Disk C:-Documents and Settings, then to the folder for that username. Copy all of the folders and files to a safe place, like burn it to CD's or DVD's, or even to a flash drive. Do not save it to My Documents.

Sometimes the fastest way to rebuild the profile is to actually create a new one. Set it to administrator access. Then you can copy the contents of your old user's folders (but not the folders themselves) into the new user's folders.

Here's a recap:

Create a New User Profile in Windows XP

1. Log in as admin or an account with admin permissions.
2. Select the windows START button and click CONTROL PANEL
3. Click USER ACCOUNTS
4. Select CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT. You may need to select pick a task first
5. Type in a new name for the account
6. Click create account and ensure it is an admin account.
Copy Files to the New User Profile

1. Log on as a user other than the user whose profile you are copying files to or from.
2. In Windows Explorer, click Tools, click Folder Options, click the View tab, click Show hidden files and folders, click to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box, and then click OK.
3. Locate the C:\Documents and Settings\Old_Username folder, where C is the drive on which Windows XP is installed, and Old_Username is the name of the profile you want to copy user data from.
4. Press and hold down the CTRL key while you click each file and subfolder in this folder, except the following files: Ntuser.dat, Ntuser.dat.log, Ntuser.ini
5. On the Edit menu, click Copy.
6. Locate the C:\Documents and Settings\New_Username folder, where C is the drive on which Windows XP is installed, and New_Username is the name of the user profile that you created in the "Create a New User Profile" section.
7. On the Edit menu, click Paste.
8. Log off the computer, and then log on as the new user.
