    I have a Gateway computer/Had xp windows installed over a year ago and I was the administrator everything was fine...up until I tried installing the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.... I lost my xp windows start up/cannot get into my account/when the computer is started it shows a small box xp media. How do I get into my account as administrator a) throw the computer out the window? b) bring it to future shop c) get support guy tech to hopefully answer my questions? Thank you.

    Can you hit F8 right after the BIOS splash screen and before Windows loads? Try "Last known good configuration" and if that doesn't work try "Safe mode" to uninstall the recent software changes. If nothing seems to work, you can try the recovery console or a repair install from the Windows disc (if you have it).
