About a year ago I attempted to upgrade windows 98 to Windows xp. Somewhere along the line, it thought i entered a password to start up. (It's possible I blacked out and did this??) So, I had the xp on but when I later tried to log on, i couldn't because..no password. I could not discover one after using all my password-creating formulas. I was told (by more than one person at microsoft support) i had no alternative but to wipe out my hard drive and return to windows 98. So i did and have been too aggravated to get another Win xp upgrade. But it's time for a change and i would like to be able to use the one i have. Anybody, help?
