For a windows xp repair, how do I log onto windows administrator when I forgot the password?
my windows is corrupt from a virus. I do not at this time do a format since I have a lot of data on it. SO I was trying to do a respair using the install disc. When I attempted to do this, windows asked me to enter the adminstrator's password, and apparently I do not know. it gave me three shots. NOW WHAT?
it gets worse: I then rebooted after windows did not let me guess a fourth time. I chose R at this time; however, instead of letting me have another shot at the admin pw, it just pput into the c:/windows .
2 way f10 then hold down windows key+R at start-up
