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.

Hi

It sounds like you need to logon with a valid local account but aren't doing so. What's the operating system? If you do have a valid domain admin account then login with that, and you should be able to check on and change the local account settings in user accounts in control panel. If not, then first try username: Administrator, with a blank password to logon to the local computer. ie if joined to a domain when you click options at the logon screen you should have a choice of domain or the local pc's name - choose the local pc's name. If this doesn't work, can you ever remember setting a password on this pc? If you can, try using username administrator with that password and logging onto the local pc. If that doesn't work then you'll need to change the local administrator's password to get in,
Some useful tools:
How can I gain access to a Windows 2000/XP/NT computer if I forgot the administrator's password? How can I reset the administrator's password if I forgot it?
