My Dad - who lives in a different city than I - is using my old Compaq Windows 2000 professional PC that I gave him when I got a new computer.
He was able to log-in fine until the PC asked him to make a new username/password because the old one was expiring.
Even though I've given him the username/password I used (from my written notes) - the PC still will not let him in. I have a funny feeling he re-set the password and doesn't realize it or know what he re-set the password to.
Seems like I remember there is a way to log-in as a new user or not log in at all.
Can't you hit escape when the username/password box comes up? Or leave the password field blank?
Thanks for your help. I've got to guide him over the phone until the next time I go home for a visit.
No, you cannot log in as a new user or not log in at all. You must log in with an existing account. Sometimes, the administrator account has a blank password. Have him try logging in as "administrator"
