I have had a password using Windows XP to keep my kids off the computer when I'm not there but recently I changed it to no password because it was becoming a nuisance to enter every time I restarted. Last night I had to restart my machine when a bad blank DVD disk made my scren go blue. When I restarted, I was prompted for a password so I pressed "return" as usual but it wanted a password. I tried some older ones I had used that I could remember but no luck. I can only log on as guest.
Is there any way to sort this out? I do not have the windows disk. I bought it from Aldi in the UK and there is a "reset to factory settings" disk but I don't want to go down that road if I can help it.
