hi-
how do i unlock my computer. all of a sudden when i want to switch users a box pops up that says something like only the administrator (me) can unlock this computer. it wasnt doing this yesterday. when i do type a password there isnt a box that says the password is incorrect i just hear a sond and it brings me back to the account i was already on. i only have two accounts on my computer. mine and the guest account. the guest account is on, but when i turn my computer on it just goes straight to my account there is no login screen.anyone know how i can fix this?

-thank you :thumbsup:

has anyone else had access to the computer since it changed?

Have you tried logging on in safe mode?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

You could try rebooting your computer in safe mode and accessing the administrator account. From there you can access the control panel, select "User accounts" and choose your account. Then select the option to remove the password. From there just reboot your computer.
