Cursor disappears

delete all cache and cookies. It is possible that you have set your system to remember your password and since you changed it recently, the chrome is trying to sign in using old password. Try removing the "Remember password" option

I cant remember my administrator password, is there a way to reset or undo it

Restart your computer, when you see your computer manufacturs logo pop up, start pressing the F8 button on your keyboard. Some options will pop up onn your screen, useing the up and down arrows on your keyboard, scroll down to the option "safemode with networking" and press enter. After a few minutes your login screen should pop up with two admin. accounts, one password protected, one not, click on the open admin account, do not be alarmed by the way everything looks, your in safe mode. From in here, go to control panel/user accounts, select yours and choose the "remove password" option. Your done. Restart your computer, select your account from the login screen - and you will be let in.

My son set administrator and user passwords on computer. Son has moved out, claims he cannot remember passwords. Computer is locked like a vault. How can I get in?

Restart your computer, first screen, hold down F8, a screen will pop up, select safe mode with the arrows and once that is done, you want to login as Administrator without a password and then hit ENTER. It will get into your computer in the safe mode and now you can go to the START menu n then to the CONTROL PANEL and go to user names and passwords and change your password

It depends on what operating system your using, if it's windows XP then you should be able to press 'control' 'alt' and 'delete' twice when it comes up with the logon screen. This will then give you the option to log into an account called administrator. This will either have no password, or have the same password that you originally used to setup the account. From here you should be able to either change the password of the other account or, create a new account.
Failing that you can hang your son upside down from a window untill he remembers.
