User profiles

Hi,
I deleted all five of my user profiles thinking that I would now be able to
get straight into the computer without having to log on and save myself some
disk space by getting rid of the other users. Now I cannot log on at all. I
have tried logging on as Administrator with no password and that doesn't work
either.
Any advice?

Hi,

So the only remaining account is the administrator account, and you don't
remember the password?

Have you tried accessing the administrator account from Safe Mode?

Its easy, its simple. Its a piece of software called "ERD Commander", it is
basically an OS that runs from disk, and looks a lot like XP, and you can
reset passwords once it has booted.

Hope this helps?
