    i wanted my computer to stop making me have to click one of the log in things when I started it up and I wanted it to just go back to the way that it was before, when it used to automatically log me in. So I went to my control panel and the only option to change it was something about Windows so I unchecked that. To my surprise, it is now forcing me to have to log in. The problem is that I do not have a clue what my user name and password were. It has been literally years since I logged into it.

    Can anyone help me with this? I tried using the safe mode, but it still makes me log in. HELP!!

    I cant even use my own computer.

    If you know the password (often null) to the special Administrator account you can log it to that in Safe Mode and change the password to any other account. We cannot help beyond that.
