Hey guys
I removed a W32 virus from my computer and now when I restart the PC it's asking for a logon password. I have never set or used a password for admin or a user profile. I have tried leaving it blank and I get a message "Unable to log you on because of an account restriction" .
I have tried thisin safe mode also and have the same results. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I am not trying to reset a password, it never had a password to begin with, but is now asking for one. Could it be a problem with my winlogon or a result of the virus that I had? In any case I still am unable to log back into windows, I am stuck at the logon menu.

This sounds like the LSA registry key got messed up

Were you being helped at another forum for the spyware problem ? If so do you have a link ?

Try this, reboot your PC, when it starts up keep pressing the F8 Key. A list of options should pop up, select "Last Known Good Configuration", tell me if that works.
