Ok, I have 2 problems here, really hoping someone can help me out.
I just built a computer and installed a hard drive from another computer. Everything was taken off of it except for the accounts. I deleted the accounts and then made a new one along with changing the computer name. Everything went great, no hitches. I got a system message saying that I had to activate Windows XP because it detected a different motherboard, no problem. I went ahead and activated it, so far so good. Then I go ahead and reboot and what happens? I have the previous owner's login screen (Luckily no password required) I go into Windows, create another account, change the computer name and then go to delete their account but their account is not listed in the User Accounts? Any ideas on how I can delete this?
Prior to reactivating Windows, I had no connectivity problems, now I do. I get the correct ip addy when I do a IPCONFIG but I can't connect. It's saying more than likely it's a firewall issue, which I know it isn't. I checked, rechecked, and checked some more and positively have no firewalls running. Any ideas on why this is happening and how to fix it?
Any assistance anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.Any ideas on what I can do?
