I have an issue at start up where I am being asked for a BIOS password (which I never set). I enter my password and the boot up continues. Once I log in ... here are the following symptoms.
- Administrator Account is disable
- Unable to install "any" programs
- Unable to open a Command Prompt
- Unable to run Restore
- Basically .... if anything requires "Administrator" rights ... I have a problem.
I am met with a "You do not have rights" error message when trying to enable the Admin account in (Safe Mode or booted up with Windows Install Disk)
I have tried to copying the contents of the RegBack directory back to the \config directory to no avail.
The "run" and "run once" keys look normal in the registry.
FarBar Recovery scan returns with no fix list. (have and could provide report)
I've never seen a problem like this were the BIOS request for password comes up immediately. Entering BIOS and trying to turn this off is met with access denied.
Nasty! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
