Please help...I used system config to go into safe mode, and now the password to log on to windows isn't working, probably because this computer was baught used and I'm not listed as an administrator. How can I log in when I'm not the administrator in safe mode, or how do I reboot in normal mode so I can log in?

GoTo > Run box and type just like this > msconfig

On the general tab - Put a click in the box - Normal Startup - Reboot.

If you have the old password - change it and log in with the new one.
