I connected my computer to a domain , but now when I start the computer the screen pops up and ask for username and password and then it shows the domain name.
I no longer want to log on the domain but to my regular computer. I change the buttom part to (ITIS) This computer ---but it still ask for a username and password when I did not have one from before. How do I get back to my local c drive?

Thanks.

you need to go into the system properties and take it off of the domain back into a workgroup.

Right click My computer -> click on the Computer Name tab -> click the Change button -> click on the Workgroup radio button and insert any name (or the name of your workgroup if you have one).

At that point, you can reboot and log in as with the uername administrator and whatever the admin password is (probably blank if you didn't set one)

I did that now when I sign in it ask for a username and password. I did not enter one in and now I can not get to the domain - workgroup or local c drive.

You didn't enter one?  What user account are you trying to log in with?  

Did you try Administrator with no password?

You can't do that with 2000 and XP.  You HAVE to have a user name.  The password could be blank (assuming the domain that you were on didn't change it).

Try Administrator without a password.
