I have a problem. I think a hacker hacked my computer and changed my user password,
even though I always kept zonealarm firewall on.
I'm sure I typed my password right when I tried to log in but it said invalid password and I haven't ever changed my user pass.
I also tried the Administrator account and Guest account but Guest account was disabled and Administrator had a password.
Then I searched the internet and I found that I can use a security hole in XP Installing.
(When you press Shift F10 in the install screen it opens cmd and you can edit password)
Then I searched my XP Install CD and I put it in and booted it.
It copied some files and then it went to the install screen.
But, I didn't remember there was not enough room in the hard drive and got an error which said not enough memory in hard drive.
I found a password changer tool called OphCrack but I cant use it.
When I boot my computer it goes automatically to XP install screen and the error occurs.
How can I disable the install thing?
