I imagine this started shortly after the service pack 3 download. For some reason the sp3 is creating some major problems with various machines. Try uninstalling the sp3, and running a system repair with you recovery or operating system disc. If it will not allow you to uninstall it (I've had a few machines lately that won't allow the removal), then you will need to reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system.

SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

Cannot use my password to get back into Windows XP


Because of the security features built into Windows XP, it is virtually impossible to get back into the system without the password. You have several options to try and get around this problem.

If you have the access to another user account with administrator rights, you can use that account to change the password of the account that is locked out. You can also use the default Administrator account that is built into Windows XP.

First you need to boot the system into the Safe Mode.
1. Restart your system.
2. When you see the blue Dell globe or screen, press the ( F8 ) key about 3 times a second.
3. You should get the windows startup menu. Use the (up or down) arrow keys to highlight (SafeMode)
4. Press (Enter) on (SafeMode), then press (Enter) on (Windows XP).
5. The system should boot to Safe Mode.

Once you are at the Account Log on Screen, click on the icon for the user account with administrator rights, or click on the icon for the administrator account.
Note: For Home the Administrator account isn't normally shown & in Safe Mode you have to press Ctrl+ALt+Delete keys twice to show. For PRO you cando this in normal mode

When the system has booted to the desktop, use the following steps to change the accounts password.
1. Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative tools.
2. Click Computer Management.
3. Double click Local Users and Groups, double click the folder users.
4. Right click on the account name that is locked out, and click on Set Password.
5. You may get a warning message about changing the password, simply click proceed.
6. Leave the New Password box blank , also leave the Confirm Password box blank.
7. Click OK, and OK again.
8. Then close all Windows, reboot the system and try to log in.


There are also applications that can recover the password for you. The following companies provide these applications at a cost.
iOpus* Password Recovery XP here.
LostPassword.com, here
Asterisk Password Recovery XP v1.89 here.
Windows XP / 2000 / NT key here.


If the above information does not help in recovering the password, the only option left is to format the hard drive then reinstall Windows and system software.

I have problem to open my system restor 2 also Ihave problm to open and get back to my own users accounts the widows only open to my limited account


That's a big problem you got there

What version of windows are you using? if you're using windows xp, after booting the windows screen don't click any accounts just hold ctrl alt delete button. And after that you'll prompt to put a username and password. In the username type administrator and no password and click enter

once you enter, go to the control panel and change your settings on your user accounts.

About your system restore. I think it's disabled by a user that's why it doesn't function. Right click the My computer and go to properties ang go to the system restore tab and enable the system restore for your partition e.g. local c: or others

1) Go to Control Panel on the start menu.
2) Double click on User Accounts.
3) Then under the Pick a Task heading select Change the way users log on or off.
4) Tick the box next to Use the Welcome screen.
5) Then click apply. Password or not when your computer starts up it will take you to the welcome screen where the user can select which account they want to log into.

Hi - on log on my computer is unable to open my user account and opens a temporary account instead. It gives the message 'attempting to restore a file in the registry but the specified file is not in...


If you can access your computer with a temporary user account, you can simply replace the "hal.dll". You can find this file in all windows computers (win xp to win 7), simply copy the file from another computer save it on a flash drive and paste it in the folder C: > Windows > System 32 and paste it. The steps are as follows, open "My Computer", double click "C:" drive, again open "Windows" folder and then again open "System32" folder and paste the file there. Restart your computer and it'll work fine.

Or you can download the "hal.dll" file here.click here. (I've uploaded it for you). Open the link and click "Download Now", wait for 20 seconds and again click "Download File Now" link (purple link).

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
