Try booting to "safe mode" by pressing F8 as the computer starts till you see the menu. then often you can sign in as Administrator with a blank password. and make new profiles ect. (sometimes it works, worth a shot anyway), depends on how things have been setup. Also just try a blank for password, that is often overlooked aswell. cheers. System restore is initallized by watching for the F key to press when the system initiallizes. commonly F1-F2 F10 or F12

Reformat my desktop


Many computers come with a "restore disc". Otherwise it might have come with a windows disc. If you have a restore disc simply put it in and you should be able to follow the onscreen prompts to simply restore it to the setup it originally came with. If you have a windows disc you may need to go through the on screen prompts to install a frsh installtion of windows. During this process if you read all the prompts carefully you will in fact see an option to format the C drive before beginning the fresh isntallation.
