Hello all...
My problem is that I found after changing my password that I was locked out of windows.
After trying almost everything I finally discovered that as my keyboard is qwerty (english version of XP prof installed) that when I changed my password windows saw it as azerty. Consequently I could only get back into windows by typing my password as if I was using an azerty keyboard. when I did this all was ok and I back up and running with a few more grey hairs!!

My Question is : How do I regulate this so my system understands my keyboard commands when I type in english on my qwerty keyboard? Or am I stuk with it as it is?
Thanks in advance guys
