I got an error from windows when I wanted to open Control Panel. Said something like this is harmful or sth (by windows) and then came DrWatson debugger and the whole windows just froze. I did on restart and logged in in safe mode. Did a symantec virus scan in administrator account. Nothing found by antivirus program. Then I booted my pc in Normal mode and I got a surprise, I couldnt log in to my account anymore. I am pretty sure I remember my password. So i got into safe mode again as admin and changed my password for my user account. And now I got in. Everything seems to work fine now but it is odd that the password had changed for my user account. Whats the reason for that?

Dr Watson reports system errors
You do not have an infection. You may want to direct your questions at the XP or Vista forum, whichever applies
