I somehow locked myself out of Windows XP Professional as ADMINISTRATOR and cannot get into my account other than as GUEST. I was tweeking the SETTINGS when this happened so that I would not have to use my Password each time I opened Windows. Now I have access only as GUEST and of course cannnot go back and change settings as they originally were because I cannot get in as Administrator. Any suggestions? Hit wrong button, this should be under WINDOWS XP OS
I did that same thing to myself and couldn't do any kind of changes. I tried for days, then I remembered about going into safe mode and then system restore. I was never so happy when windows came back on the way it was supposed to. I hope this works for you.
