What version of windows are you running?

Is it a windows password where you cant login at windows? Or is it a bios password where when you first turn on your pc it immediatly ask for a password before you see the logo of windows loading?

So which windows, and which type of password? I know how to fix both.

Ahh safe mode, didnt see that. If you login to safe mode, login to the administrator account. Go to the control panel, click on USERS, find the user that has a password on it, and click that USER, then click REMOVE PASSWORD...

Yes I did that, but assuming he cant access windows because he cant get past the password, he is probably on a different pc to post here, so no telling what windows is on the passworded one. But he did say xp in his statement about the password. :whistling:
