Locked out! (workgroup domain)

October 20, 2012 3:17:43 AM


I am locked out of my computer now, after changing my domain to workgroup ( workplace, I believe) It told me to restart, and after which it brought me to a login screen. I have no accounts set up, and when I boot normally, It brings me straight to windows. But now, my computer brings me to a login screen, which is not the normal one, it is much simpler. It has a username line and password line, and an options menu, which only lets me shut the pc down. maybe some of you know what I'm talking about. Anyways, I need a password, for an account I never set up in the os install or created. Admin, password *blank* do not work for passwords. Any ideas? It seems to be a common problem. I have tried booting password recovery software from usb sticks, but ran into kernel panic errors for both programs I tried.

Ended up re installing windows as it wasn't worth the effort. Lan parties...
