Hi all

i am currently using my laptop at the moment as i cant get into my main computer. I was trying to set it up so that when i start up it goes all the way to the desktop without putting in a password in the log in screen. I went into user accounts and noticed that there was 2 accounts usually there is one. One was called mcmullan which is the one i use and another called administrator dont know about this one. I was able to delete the mcmullan account (big mistake) but unable to delete the other one, so i thought it would be ok. I rebooted and it came to the log in screen with - user name- administrator i now need a password to get in, i have tried all the passwords i would use including leaving it blank but no luck, is there anyway to get past this, also i noticed that safe mode wont work it gets to mup.sys and then the pc will reboot back to normal start up and end back at the login screen.

Any help would be appreciated.

Don't put in a password and click Enter. What happens?
