Hey,my computer wont let me log into my profile, on the windows sign in screen it has my bros profile and other users icon but mine isnt there and if i put in my name and password is always says either my password or name is wrong, i went into the administators account and took off my password and then retried logging in but still no luck, i've never had this problem before but all my college work is on the profile, is this fixable without removing the profile completely?

the "NAME" as i found out myself by accident like u i guess, is the one you put when you installed OS, or booted it first time, it can be the PC name, without the -PC at the end. hope it helps you

Wesley, this has happened on TWO of my computers within the last couple of days. My guess is that an update to windows has screwed up our computers. My stuff was backed up offline so I'm now using my guest profile but I think were were f****d by the updates.

Or there's a virus out there that both of my computers caught at the same time!

If your bros account is as an administrator you can access yours through his. If you cant fix it set up another account and copy your stuff into our new account. Have you tried a system restore? Go through this guide of aford10 as well http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/8263-47-simple-free...

Login any available computer which can allow you download. Insert a blank CD . Find Windows Password Key and download
it, burn the iso image file to the cd. When finish, insert the disk to your computer, restart your computer, set the bios so that the computer boot from CD. Then you can clear your account password without knowing the current password.
