Cannot log on to my computer. Does not accept log in name.


start the computer in safe mode by pressing F8 during boot up. You will notice there is now an admin account. Open the admin account and then click Start/Run In Run type cmd and hit enter. When dos opens type this " net user yourname * " without the quotes. Dos will ask for a new password, enter it and your done. Restart the computer and your new password is set. :)

Computer will not accept password can not log on


Have you tried in safe mode? If so, then you will need a password reset tool to reset the SAM file in the registry.
There is one located here: http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm
But you will need to learn how to use it as these are tricky and can cause MAJOR damage to your OS.
