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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
