To make a long story short, I tried to disable the Welcome screen in Windows and it didn't work. Then I downloaded Tweak UI, made some changes, but now my rig has me locked out of logging onto the system.

My log on name has disappered from the Windows screen and all that is there is the Administrator icon. When I click on that it asks me for a password. But there is no password!!!! So when I click on that it won't let me log on with out entering a password. So without any password, I'm locked out of Windows.

On top of that, after pressing F8 continuously, I am unable to boot into safe mode. The PC just boots to the Administrator screen. Safe Mode seems to be disabled now.

Can someone please help me get my computer back up and running? Please???

I went into my BIOS and realized that I had my Legacy USB set to disable, so that was preventing me from booting to safe mode because my keyboard is USB. So I enabled that setting which allowed me to boot into safe mode. Once in safe mode I typed this in:

command prompt and then type in thusly: %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

This allowed me to do a system restore, and I was back up and running.
