    Help please. I cant log on to XP home edition as the 'Administrator' account i.e CTRL-ALT-DEL at welcome screen, User : Administrator, Passwpord : blank (none set to my knowledge.

    It says there are account limitations set??? Any suggestions?

    You can only log on as Admin in safe mode with Home edition.
    Boot up hold down F8 after disk search and select safe mode
    you can then select Admin
    dont know why they did this but it works
