I needed to see ALL startup items because Security IGuard definitely does not need to be on startup...uninstalled or not it needs to go. You do have normal startup on, yes?

Also this computer has to be available for use around 10 am. Is that gonna be a problem ???

No it won't if you follow ALL instructions exactly as I have given them.

i had uninstalled SIG before we ever got started. I had just gone threw to do a kinda cleanup of programs that we didnt use.so i had already uninstalled it,before your instruction too

I went Back to Msconfig and rechecked all the items i had unchecked and rebooted the computer the way we always do.

Yes, I understand you had already uninstalled it, but it was obviously still on startup. Now, if you had left it unchecked, I wouldn't have seen it and it would still be on startup even though the program is gone. Which is why I wanted normal startup. :tazz:

Ive got big problems!! first tho was i suppose to Update CWshredder, cause it didnt find anything

BIG problem at the end of Run Cleanup it said it needed to delete a few extra files that i was using ,and i needed to logout to do it. So i thought i should try and get rid of everything......so i did it , and now it needs a password for me to use windows. And i Dont know it and niether does the owner.... and i cant get 1 of the owners to wake up...I dont think he knows it either, its just never asked for a password before... Man im stupid is there any way around this ???

im on my friends laptop right now

Print these instructions out:
http://www.petri.co....mand_prompt.htm

Ok boot into Safe Mode and log-on as Administrator if it asks for a password leave it blank and hit enter.

Follow the instructions in the link to change the password with command prompt.

Yeah, everything should be fine now! Don't worry about the command prompt password changing :tazz:

Also, when you log-on as Admin in Safe Mode, if it asks for a password just leave it blank and hit enter.
