Tried the safe mode command prompt, but it still boots to log in screen.
I am trying to get there to user the .exe to launch system restore.

This computer is a domain member but has a security issue that will not let it log in with any account.

They do not have a windows 7 CD to boot to and are  3 hours away.

If I can somehow get them to the internet , then I can remote in and fix this issue.

any help is appreciated.

what is the exact security issue you have?
can you not login with the local admin account on the computer ?

right , can't log in with the admin account or any other account. the computer is a domain member , so when I boot to safe mode it asks to log in . I wanted to get them to the internet so i can connect and remove them from the domain and re add.

The only possible way would be to use the local admin account.

Login and dis join from domain and then rejoin.

what remote software do you use to connect to your Computers ?

You can user password recovery tools if needed

Do you get the error even if you login locally ?

I'm going to ship her a windows 7 CD, boot to that and run system restore. Is there any way to Safe Mode boot to Command without the login?

note: attempted remote registry  attempt with no luck.  remoted into a different computer and the attempted RDP, no joy.  Downloaded PSEXE until, no joy there either. . no solution. I'm awarding the points for the attempt because i'm a subsciber but no solution was at hand.
