Hi Avvy.AvvY said:There is a solution to this, but I would be having words with the computer repair person who set this up. If they say they didn't do it, they are lying. It is their responsebility.
I would like to see the solution to this. I have run accross a similar situation. Here is the story.
Brother-in-law 1 got a new Dell computer for Xmas. Good for him. He gave his old Pentium III machine (Win2K pro) to Brother-in-law 2. B-I-L 2 tried to set himself up a user name and password, but he must have done something wrong.
Now, whenever he boots, he gets the logon screen with 'administrator' in the user name field. Trying to log on with no password does not work. Trying to log on with the name and password he tried to set up for himself does not work. We can not get past the log on screen.
It appears to me that my situation is analagous to Wildaboutu's, but I have no repair-tech guy to blame.
You say there is a solution. Please share it with us.
