XP repair problem Tags: Security Windows XP Keyboards Last response: October 25, 2010 1:58 PM in Windows XP Share stephenmalvinwatkins October 25, 2010 10:00:44 AM Hi Tom, you seem a genuine expert, hope you can help me, - 3days ago I installed a brand new fully XP Home and registered and activated it fine. Yesterday my keyboard and mouse went dead , some keyboard presets were changed including number lock - I suspected some intrusion by cyber-rodents, but I may be over-paranoid. Nothing I did worked, so I rebooted with my new (expensive) windows cd and tried the "R" rescue instead of the re-installation. The command line program asked for my administrator password and then REJECTED the administrator password I had entered 2 days previously during the brand new full format installation!! I saved hard to buy a legal windows xp . Hope you have your finger on this problem and can help, Thanks for listening, Steve More about : repair problem aford10 a b 8 Security October 25, 2010 1:52:59 PM The administrator password is blank by default.
