    Hey guys

    I really really need some help. Ok so i have an old laptop which didnt have wireless inbuilt to it. Anway to doay, i bought something to so i can access wireless internet on my laptop and it all set up fine. My brother in law run a scan through it to get rid of viruses which rebooted my computer. Now im trying to get back on my computer and what comes up is the Windows Exp sign, in the username it says Owner, and the password...well nothing. Ive never had a password!

    Ive tried to log on without a password and goes to my screensave then automoatically a sin comes up saying logging off and it goes back to the log in to windows box. Ive tried to do it in safe mode, but the same happens. Ive even tried typing in administrator and no password but same thing happens. It looks like is working, goes onto screensaver then straightaway a box comes up and says logging off arrrrrrrrrrgh!!

    I think the login system was missing because it has affected viruses. your anti virus found the virus that was sticked with the system and delete it. Try repair using windows xp cds.
