Question about Computers & Internet
I have a new install of windows xp,(computer had been wiped clean) I activated it last night. I used it fine, and now when I open it up it says that I need to activate before I can log in, I hit yes and it says already actived thank-you and hit Ok. I do that and it takes me to the log in screen and it says logging off. I can not get past this. I called Microsoft and couln't get a person. Can you help. Thanks Carol
Hmmm.. the problem in this one is wrong registry programing..
it happend to me twice while setting computers for auto login..
the quickest and only fix in here is by re-installing your OS or re-imaging it. make sure that you are not connected to any network or internet while doing this..
while setting the auto login correctly. the only key you have to chenge is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS NT/CURRENT VERSION/WINLOGON
1.) change AutoAdminLogon value t "1"
2.)change DefaultUserName value to whatever ur username is.
3.)change DefaultDomainName value to whatever domain u are in OR if you dont have.. you can input your PC name.
4.add a new string value the name should be DefaultPassword
then change the value to whatever password u are using..
5.)add another string named ForceAutoLogon and change the value to 1.
thats it.. ur set .. close the window and reboot your pc..
