Hello Every one, I seem to have run into a Problem with my PC
It seems that someone or something has put in a password without my Knowladge or Consent
Also The Welcome Screen is Blank..Posted Image it looks something like that
My PC is a
Dell Pentium 4 (Yes its old :whistle: )
1.8 Mg/hertz Processer
Windows XP Home Edition
All Hardware Functions Properly which makes me belive it is a Software Issue.

What i have Tried
AVG recovery disk.. Found Nothing
Cannot Acsess Safe mode Because of the same issue as Above
Not to mention i cannot Run the Recovery Console from my windows Xp disc because i do not know the password\
Currently Running another Scan on my C: drive which is my main Drive
Reinstalling Windows.

How it Started.
It begain to crash every other day once i started Playing "Infernal" a Video Game by Eidos, PlayLogic and Metropolis

I Appreceate your time i would rather not Reformat but if it has to comedown to that then well Bugger. :mellow:

Hello and welcome to the forum!

My first thought is that you are infected.
If your games were online I would expect that is how you got it

You might want to head on over to the Am I Infected forum and have our people take a look at it for you.
In the beginning there was the command line.
