Freddy_15,

My first question for you is - are these computers on a server-based network? If they are, you will need to rejoin them to the domain to get back in with your username, if they use to be, but are not any longer, you need a local computer account in order to log into them.

This may not be an easy fix, Freddy_15. :tazz: The first thing to try is make sure the "log in to" drop down box says "computername (this computer)" (which it should since you have changed to a workgroup instead of the domain) for username, put in "administrator" (without the quotes), and leave the password blank. If the person who originally set up the computer was a lazy admin, this will actually get you in. However, if they were a security conscious admin, this will most likely not get you in.

If you are not able to get in with this, my next suggestion would be to see if the network admin at your dad's office can give you the local account info to get you into the computer. If this fails, the easiest way to get in is to use a password cracker. This one Loginrecovery is one that I have used in the past and it will most likely get you in.

Once you are in, let me know, and we will get things back up and working correctly all the way around.
