    Earlier today,i attempted to get rid of the "log into Windows" messagebox that appears just before Windows fully opens up. What appears to have happen is i actually set up Windows to boot up by adminstrator with password only.

    I took out the internal battery for 30 minutes to erase,that didnt work.
    next? (compaq presario,new model)


    i do not mind reinstalling windows but i attempted though the F10 method(a method used before to reinstall)but i got a message about hive something.

    PS im using my secondary computer to post.


    thanks
