To make a long story short, i need to get around the user name screen that asks for a password to log on to windows (XP Home edition). Like i said, to make a long story short i'm doing a recovery repair and now it's asking for a password and i've NEVER had one and i can't get around it. I've just pressed enter and it doesn't work.

I've got the same problem. Can't get around the password using admin or administrative as user name.

Hi skamaniac...

The password issue is something we can't help you with beyond the suggestions you have already received. Our Terms of Service prevents us from doing so. Let me explain why. First, there is no way that we can know your intentions regarding this machine...we have no real way of knowing even if it is truly your machine. I don't intend this in any bad way, just stating why we don't help with these kinds of problems. :whistling: The second, and probably more critical reason, is that if we do help with this, it leaves the answer open to anyone who uses google to find it. That really does present a problem as we may be inadvertantly aiding in criminal activity.

I do hope you understand...sorry.

wannabe1 is exactly right. We cannot provide any further help with this issue. Your reasoning for getting around a password may be "legit", but the next person who would read the topic and answer may have less than good motives in needing this information. That is why we cannot continue this thread.

Thank you for your cooperation. :whistling:
