Hello, when i logon to and admin acount there is a software that was installed called "USB System Auto Lock" and i dont have the kay it wants. So everytime I logon, this program keeps on locking the computer. I tried going to the registry, but and deleting the key but it said they cannot be deleted. I am running from an limited acount. It does not lock the limited acount. I cannot deleted it from startup. Any help would be greatly apreciated as I cannot access my files anymore. if you don't know could you point me in the right direction. I cannot logon to the admina ccount.


Thanks

Hi :thumbsup:.

Well...are you the admin, is this your system?

Who installed this software?

I don't find anything for such software, using Google.

I am the only one who uses the compute and i found a link to the software.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/usl/

a few seconds after I log on: this window pops up locking the system.

IIf i logon with admin that lock pops up and like i said, i can only log on to a limited acount. Is my data/ computer on other acounts doomed?

There are heaps of Programs out there that con you into downloading a Trial Version then put Keys in place to make you pay to remove them? This seems like one of them.

What have happened is that your 10 day Trial ran out so it has locked it up hoping you will pay $22.00 to unlock it.

It can be fixed, but I have to rely on others more Trained then me, Mate!

I will ask for this to be moved to a better place for you.

You know the exact location of the Files?

Check it out while you wait and write them down so you will remember?

No need to Post them, just have them when you need them?

I dont have the key it wants.


From the website
:"A computer that locked by USL can unlock by the USB drive which contain the correct key only."

What have happened is that your 10 day Trial ran out so it has locked it up hoping you will pay $22.00 to unlock it.


Sourceforge is free, opensource software

The download link you provided:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/usl/
If you click on the Public Tab, You can fill out a support request and if you click on the public forum link, you might find some info there
