Why are we having the exact same conversation via PM??

Nah, it is a totally unrelated issue, that is onyl related to the net if a hacker has changed my PW.

Only related to GF in my asking for help here. :D

Jedi Master DavetheFoHe' s smoking crack again i reckon.

... :nodding:

How would a change in a website, mess up a Windows User account, and one that is rarely used? Μαjïç MushrøøM, I really have to know.

It could be related to GF, if someone hacked the forums during the move. :D

Jedi Master DavetheFoIm quite honestly shocked that such an option even exists... [/QUOTE] :uhm: Turn it off if you don't like it. [QUOTE=Reven]If this works, it's a major flaw in Windows. Any person who has stolen a PC can access the data.

All you need to do to access the information in a Windows account is to boot up another operating system and use that to pull out whatever files you like, or even just overwrite the security policy with your own one. So from the point of view of it being physically stolen it doesn’t make a whole lot of difference.

From the welcome screen try pressing CTRL+ALT-Delete-Delete

Then log in as administrator, using administrator as the password (or whatever you set when and if you did the windows install).

If the safemode way works, then this will to, just quicker.
