Solution to both issues:
\015\012#1: Logon as "Administrator" as follows:
\015\012Instead of accepting the username, press the tree keys:
\015\012[Ctrl] [Alt] [Delete]
\015\012A logon screen will appear:
\015\012Username: administrator
\015\012Passrowd: <leave blank>
\015\012
\015\012There you can copy to a flash drive / burn DVD / CD, etc.
\015\012
\015\012#2:
\015\012If #1 fails, and/or when you get a new computer, remove the hard drive from this old computer and install it in an external drive (USB) enclosure ($15 ~ $20).
\015\012If you will sell the old computer, sell it w/o the hard drive or wipe the hard drive clean in the USB enclosure and re-install it in the old computer w/o any Operating System.
This usually happens on pirate copies of operating systems.
\015\012
\015\012There are a couple of other reasosn but they can be fixed by booting into safe mode by repeatedly pressing F8 and selecting SAFE MODE as the boot option
\015\012
\015\012If it is an illegal copy then even that may not be of any use to you.
