:tazz: Hiya. Norton AV found and deleted a trojan horse.After I rebooted my system, I got error message 0x000021a \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFI G\SYSTEM. I tried to repair the registry using the microsoft corrupt registry fix on the microsoft website. I got through step one, and when I rebooted again and tried to access the repair console. The repair console wouldn't let me in without an administrator password. I didn't have a password before I tried the fix. Anyone have any idea what happened? Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

The console always prompts for a password even when no password has been set for the admin account --- it simply doesn't know wether you set one or not. If you didn't, just leave password prompt empty and press ENTER. Then it should let you in.

I know that. What I probably should have said was, the repair console now wants a password to enter. Just trying to bypass by hitting "enter" doesn't work anymore. I have no idea how this happened. :tazz: I didn't add anything to the syntax from the microsoft website. I can get to the windows XP loading screen now when trying to start windows, then get the BSOD saying CHKDSK failed and then the restart. Kinda frustrating, y'know? :mad: Anyway, if there is a way to get around the password request in repair console, please let me know. hehe. Thanks for the reply. ;)
