to log in.I click on it and it goes away and
everything works good.
I didn't think I had any restictions on user.

Can you tell us exactly what the message says?

Have you checked the link supplied by Budapest?

If that doesn't work, post back and we will search further.

Budapest,
Thanks for your input.
I went to the site you give me,but I
don't know if I have a password for xp home.I
have a password for email is all.
I just have adm. and limited accounts.
This restriction just started a couple weeks ago.
I don't know if I should put a password in or not.
I really don't need any.

My understanding of this issue is that you will receive this message if you try to log into the Admin account in normal mode. To stop this you should give one of your user accounts admin rights and then use that user account in normal mode.

Well...there are Admin accounts and then there are Admin accounts. :thumbsup:

In XP there are two basic types of account. There is the Admin account, and then there are User accounts (also called Owner accounts). Now a User account may have admin rights, but it is still different from the Admin account. You will receive the error message if you try to log in with the Admin account in normal mode.

In XP the Admin account has been set aside so that it can be used in Safe mode.
