Please help me as i have a computer that was running on windows 98, so i decided to upgrade it so i installed windows 2000 professional. Everything then worked well and i cleened up the computer, checked for viruses, spyware, did a disk cleaneup and so on. Everything worked great so i then shut it down. I went back to it on a later date and it took me to a log on sign in screen but my problem is i didnt create a log on name and password and i cant get into the computer.

On the log on screen it has the username as: Default, but the password is blank i have tried everything please help me out.

Windows 2000 has to create an account after the installation process, the account will be for the Administrator of that PC.
Can you remember if you had set a password for your Administrator account? if not then you can login with user name Administrator and empty password, i am not sure if it lets you set an empty password for an administrator.
worth checking!
