Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Win XP CD repair wont accept admin passwd.

\015 On Tuesday, last week my computer with Win XP was working fine. The\015\012next day, Trend Micro picked a virus. The Outlook looked bleached\015\012except for horizontal lines. All services were disabled. I changed the\015\012services to automatic and started the above. Yesterday the Outlook\015\012looks blanched yet operable. Today, I ran TrendMicro, AVG free\015\012anti-virus, Malwarebytes and Windows program to detect malware. The\015\012above scans did not come up with anything. I tried to repair the OS\015\012using Win CD. The admin passord is requested. The local, domain admin\015\012passwords is not accepted, the user nor blank password worked. Any\015\012suggestions on how to repair the OS? I could not get repair to work\015\012today either-admin password was not accepted.\015\012Thanks.\015

\015\012Okay, so no System Restore option.
\015\012
\015\012First you can check the Admin password by trying to go into Safe Mode. Immediately after the splash screen, press F8 until the Startup option menu displays. Select the first option (Safe Mode) and then the Administrator account. Type in the password you think it is, and double check your Caps-Lock key first. I do not think it advisable to post the diections on how to remove such a password on this site.
\015\012
\015\012But even verifying the admin password will NOT help you get this machine restarted and running correctly because there is nothing in the Repair Console to remedy the System Recovery option being turned off. There is nothing to go back to.
\015\012
\015\012Since you obviously do have an installation disc, hopefully one that matches you OS (XP Home for Home or XP Pro for Pro), you have two more options.
\015\012
\015\012First is run a System File Check, which is Window's way of fixing some damage to itself. It is not infallible, but it may restore enough missing files to get you running smoothly again. Go to the Start Button->All Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt. This will open a DOS box where you can type in the following command:
\015\012
\015\012sfc /scannow
\015\012
\015\012and press Enter. The routine will start, and it will take a while to complete. Hopefully it will prompt you to insert the installation disc so it can read and transfer the missing files to the hard drive. If the Windows XP Installer pops up from autorun just click cancel. Let this routine run all the way through, then reboot.
\015\012
\015\012I have also had some success by reinstalling the latest Service Pack (currently SP3) to replace files the installer finds missing.
\015\012
\015\012If that doesn't work, then you can do a Repair Installation. I'll wait to hear your results with the System File Check first as a repair install can be tricky (drivers, COA, etc.).
\015\012
\015\012Oh, and I have no idea what ragmani69 is trying to suggest. It definitely would not work for your problem.
Access he system bios on startup and remove the block from there,then reset it to one you choose.also reset the systen bios to default.
