    "Lastly in Tools you have two options, you have a list of your programs
    and a very good uninstaller feature that can get rid of the most
    stubborn of programs that don't want to be removed and you have StartUp,
    In StartUp you can disable or delete a startup entry to stop an
    application starting with Windows, this is handy when you have an
    application that refuses to uninstall and the reason being is that it
    is running.

    To give you an idea, I have two items in the StartUp list on all my
    computers, AVG 8.0 (my antivirus) and CTFMonitor ( a neccessary Windows

Keep tapping the F8 key while you boot your machine, hopefully you will get a black screen with some white writting on it.
Using the up and down arrows select Boot Safe Mode without Networking.
Once you boot into safe mode go to programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and follow the wizard to restore your machine back to a time and date before you installed the modem software.

    Look on the side of your machine at the COA sticker (Microsoft), this is going to tell you exactly what version of XP is installed on your machine (probably XPHome with Service Pack 1 or 2)

    Now download and install CCLeaner from this is a great utility for cleaning up your machine.

    First clean up Windows temporary files, this will get rid of any useless files hanging about that may be causing problems.

    Second do a registry clean, hopefully that will delete the bad registry entry you have.

    Lastly in Tools you have two options, you have a list of your programs and a very good uninstaller feature that can get rid of the most stubborn of programs that don't want to be removed and you have StartUp, In StartUp you can disable or delete a startup entry to stop an application starting with Windows, this is handy when you have an application that refuses to uninstall and the reason being is that it is running.

    To give you an idea, I have two items in the StartUp list on all my computers, AVG 8.0 (my antivirus) and CTFMonitor ( a neccessary Windows system32 application)

  • Richard Finch Aug 30, 2008

    Let me know how you get on with CCLeaner.

    Branded machines like Emachines, Dell, HP and whatever come bundled with a right load of rubbish you don't need, if you need any help sifting through the "bloated, sell you all they can preloaded garbage" let me know.

  • Richard Finch Aug 30, 2008

    You don't need drivers for that modem> All ATT are doing when they ask you to use their CD is install their branded software that you don't need.

    I am guessing this is a DSL or ADSL modem, just connect the modem using the CAT5 cable and make sure it connected to the phone line, don't forget the filters, and plug the power supply in.

    Go to Control Panel>Internet Options and follow the wizard to setup a connection, as you follow the wizard select a dsl connection that is alwyas on and do as much as you can manually, ignore all the email and ISP selection.

    Your username and password should be already in the modem. IF NOT, we will have to either run the install CD (not a good idea) or get the username and password from ATT and manually put them in.

  • Richard Finch Aug 30, 2008

    "also in device manager it shows my ethernet port then theres one exactly like it right below that has a yellow exclamation point on it and says kaspersky at the end"

    Right click and uninstall it, restart your machine and it should be gone.

    Are you using Kapersky antivirus?

  • Richard Finch Aug 30, 2008

    The drivers for your ethernet port will be in the system32 folder of Windows, right click on the ethernet card and select reinstall driver, update driver or roll back driver, anyone of those options should repair the drivers of your ethernet card.

    Use CCLeaner to trawl through and get rid of any left overs of Kapersky that weren't removed when you uninstalled it.

  • Richard Finch Sep 01, 2008

    In StartUp, disable (not delete) everything except:



    Now go to and download the free version of malwarebytes and run it on your machine.

    Malwarebytes is one of the best malware scanners on the market at the moment, if you have any nasties (I notice you use utorrent) malwarebytes will get rid of them.

    There is nothing wrong with utorrent its the **** that comes with it is the problem.

  • Richard Finch Sep 01, 2008

    Do me a favour, contact me via email. I think you need to run a different type of scan on your machine and here is not really the place to deal with it.

Logon to admin without admin account in 10 steps for Windows 7 .

1. Boot from your Windows 7 Installer Disk.
2. Launch Windows Recovery Environment.
3. Press Shift+F10 to launch Command Prompt.

Type the following inside the command prompt box:
4. copy "c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe" "c:\windows\system32\magnifybackup.exe"
5. copy "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" "c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe" /y

6. Restart your PC and click the "Ease of Access" icon on the bottom left corner of the logon screen.
7. Check the magnify box and click ok. It will launch the command prompt.

Type the following inside the command prompt box:
Note: change the word "name" with the current admin logon name you wish to logon.
8. net user name pass

9. Close the command prompt window.
10. Logon to the admin account using the password "pass".

Good Job, you can access your files that you already thought you lost. And you can change or remove the password in control panel now..

Disclaimer : This workaround should "not" be used to hack any other PC but yours. The purpose of this tip is to logon to your PC in case you forgot your admin password. Use at your own risk. The author shall not be liable if this workaround is misused in any unlawful way.

I cannot remember my login and password. The computer has not been used for several years. How do I by pass the ogin screen or change my login and password?

I believe your computer has windows XP on it? if y\it is XP on it upon powering your system keep on tapping F8 until you get to windows advance menu then select safe mode it should log into win xp select the administrator account, once logged in as administrator go to control panel in xp select users icon then in users icon click on manage accounts then select the your log in Icon which you forgot the password then click on change password........ this should help you log back in your computer, but if you don't have any files that need to be backed up on that computer I suggest that you reformat instead to make sure that windows will run perfectly fine when you use it, but if you don't have a windows installer and you are successful in changing the password I suggest that you clean up the system by doing a disc clean up on it and a defragmentation on the Hard drive

Right-click your desktop and go to Properties (Note: Don't click an icon, just the background image of your desktop). Afterward, click the tab at the top of the new window labeled, "Screen Saver." Now at the bottom of the Window select, "Power." Now change the settings so that the system doesn't turn off the hard disks, enter standby mode, or hibernate. Afterward press OK, then Apply, then OK again.

Let me know if I can help you further, or if I need to describe any of the above instructions in more detail.
