You can try removing the CMOS battery or take it in to a good shop they have the software tweaks to do that. I know most folks are avoiding the shops for a good reason however some things just are not avoidable and by the time you learn how to crack a lost password plus purchase the software program to do it. You will already be up and running for an hours time at a shop to reset it. This is why it is critical to make a password reset disc right away or do not use a password that you will forget over time. I use the last four of my social when I use a password who can forget that..... Another option is to re-install and re-boot the computer to its factory settings using your restore software that came with your purchase.............John
Unfortunately, if the password has been forgotten, you will have to "Restore" the iPod, which will erase all the songs and other files that are currently on there.
To update or restore iPod nano:
1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of
iTunes from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
2 Connect iPod nano to your computer.
3 In iTunes, select iPod nano in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.
The Version section tells you whether iPod nano is up to date or needs a newer version
of the software.
4 Click Update to install the latest version of the software.
5 If necessary, click Restore to restore iPod nano to its original settings (this erases all data
from iPod nano). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.
Wow, sound like a virus has done a little damage to your system. Have you tried running an antivirus prior to your restore? From my 16 years experience, when I see what's happening to your system, it's a virus. Please comment once you do this. Good luck.
You know how to get to the safe mode option. Well get to that screen and try last known good configuration. What this does it takes restores everything up to where you last logged on your computer successfully. If that doesn't work run the windows disk, delete the partition and start fresh. If that is a no go you have a hardware problem most likely.
You can reset by downloading a password restore iso file and creating a bootable CD from this if you have a CD writer on another computer. Otherwise check the NEC website on how to restore the original factory image (but you will lose all installed programs and user files).
Or use a friends PC to make a bootable floppy or CD.
