I somehow have gotten a username and password box on log in to my windows 2000 pro. In the username it says aspnet. I have tried to log in as administrator also owner. Nothing works and I have never set a password. This is a dual boot system and I am able to get to the other operating system windows ME by clicking F8. I am not able to get to windows 2000 in safemode either. It still asks for that login. I do not use aspnet and never will. My question is could I reinstall windows 2000 pro and get rid of the login screen. Will I loose my pictures and other files? I can get to windows ME and when I open my computer - C drive- where are the windows 2000 files to back up? I really need help. Thanks.

Windows 2000 is a business op system and will periodically force a password change on an existing profile. Perhaps a Win2000 update came through which is forcing a login process? Can you remember what your original profile name that was in 2000? It obviously has defaulted to the Aspnet, as its 1st in the alphabet. If you change the name to what the user profile name is, it will open with no password and all your data intact...

Hope this helps...
