ok heres the situation. my c drive icon is messed up. it looks like a default icon. now this has happened before, so i called dell cause i dont knwo what i am doing. he had me do a repair of windows. and it worked out. so i just called before and the guy made me go in a different direction then last time (cause i remember) and i booted up from the disk. it then asked me for the administrators password. he told me to press enter but when i did it told me it was invalid. when i told him this he said u have to reinstall the os. i was freaked. now i dont knwo if the password thing is against the forum guidelines (if it isnt can someone tell me how to reset it)but all i want to know is how do i repair windows xp(home) without needing the password cause the first time i did this i didnt need it. help is greatly needed. thank you very much in advance.
