I have a friend who went to the following link: http://www.grc.com/sn/notes-129.htm
. He loaded windows steady state. After loading, he realized he could not log in as admin. He tried several passwords and locked himself out. Here is what he had to say:
Yesterday I have loaded Windows Steadystate on my Win XP Home Edition machine.
I strictly fallowed the steps from this site http://www.grc.com/sn/notes-129.htm
The only thing, the only thing (now screaming, kicking, and crying)& is this:
Where it says User Settings, after I loaded Steadystate (SS) was some preloaded User, name was something like this default_fftpp904, but could be other word, not default, other then fftpp, but was for sure same structure and was 904 at the end.
FYI: When I loaded SS on my laptop the user &904 was not preloaded/pre-created. My laptop is cool now.
So I went ahead and booted as Guest, with my guest password, of course all stuff like My Dosc were not accessible and comp was basically locked, good.
But then I realized& NOOO!!!! I cant login as Admin!!!!! So panically Ive tried whatever passwords and in effect& got myself locked!!!!!
Now I have this super protected PC with SS on it and all my documents& pictures Word Docs and iTunes are&. Locked!!!!
I need to hack my own machine, but& HOW????
any help would be group
