I have win xp - recently my PC is asking me for user password!!! none was
ever created! (maybe it's a virus?)
I tried to reset CMOS with a jumper and also by removing the battery - no
help
I tried to reboot in a safe mode: I got 2 options: user or administrator
account - but without a password it will not move on
any suggestions?

Resetting your BIOS won't help with a Windows password. The BIOS is totally
separate from Windows. Check your motherboard manual to learn more about the
BIOS.

There is software that will enable you to reset your Windows Administrator
password. From there you can access the Control Panel->User Accounts and
reset the password for your user account. Download this file and read the

Hi,

Removing the battery and jumper only removes a BIOS password.
As per your issue, try here: http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

Next you'll be removing the battery to change the weather.

Does that work in Louisiana? If not, perhaps we could change batteries as I
do like rain.

I tried to use your tool but when I hit "enter" to logon I get the message "
the local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively"
when do safe mode and try to logon using either administrator or user I am
getting the same message :(
why my system is immune to it or am I doing something wrong?
