Now Vista won't boot into the Desktop after i removed the Log-in password, thinking that
Vista would by-pass it and boot straight into the Desktop.
Unfortunately it did'nt and instead it prompt for a password which I don't have. . Now I'm stuck with the log-in page. How can I get around this problem.
Appreciate all help. Many thanks in advance.

What steps were taken exactly to remove the log on password?
Can you boot to safe mode and try to log on as "administrator"

Problem solved. Many thanks for your reply. The log on password was removed by keying 'Control Userpasswords2' in the 'Run' box. Was able to boot into safe mode and set a new administrator password. Rebooted into safe mode using the new password, use System Restore to an earlier date and everything is back to normal.
Thank you once again, appreciate your help.
