Well i don't know what OS you have but i have Windows 98 and that problem can be fixed by going to control panel>open the passwords folder and select change password. Then enter your password in the old password box and in the other two boxes enter nothing. This procedure worked for me more than once.
2) type control userpasswords2
3) press return
4) choose the second tab
5) untick the option that says users must enter a password 2 use this computer
6) choose 2 autologin your username. (it's an option on there somewere)
this is all from memory though cus i'm @ skool @ mo.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
