Then type in (Reset Password) and you will see the tutorials.

How have you been getting into your system for 2 years without a password if a password has been set.
Thanks. It hasn't asked me for a password this whole time, and it's stayed logged in so I haven't needed it.

Does it need or ask for a password when you shut down the computer and start it again?

If it still ask for a password exactly when, at what stage does it ask for a password?
What are you doing when it ask for a password?

Sorry for the long reply time, I was out, it has never asked me for a password. I just click on my user profile and it lets me in no problem.

Then I don't understand this from your post #1

Startup repair has done nothing, and I'm stuck in a rut since I lost the password to my account on the PC a couple years back and have no idea what it is.
Could you stop editing all your post. All it does is keep us in the dark and it makes it very difficult to understand your thread.

Apologies. I'll try to make myself sound more coherent. I didn't proofread and I guess all the editing I did made it worse. Anyways, yesterday my computer started crashing every time I booted it up, even on safe mode, and I believe the problem may be attributed to Fallout 3, which I was having issues with right before the computer got messed up, which is probably because it isn't optimized for Win 7. I was told to run a program to make sure my memory wasn't broken in any way, and the test cleared my computer. So memory is not the cause of my issue, and I'd like to find a way to get into my hard drive so I can uninstall Fallout and see if that fixes my issue. I've also ran the automatic startup repair multiple times, and it hasn't been able to fix anything. It gives me the option to view advanced options for system recovery and support, but since I don't have my account's password I can't access that. I hope this clears things up. Sorry about the messy posting.

I know of no memory test that clears anything.

How many hard drives do you have?
Does this hard drive you are trying to get into have Windows 7 install?

What account and what password? You have already stated you don't have a password on your system.

Did you install this game when you were logged into your account?
How many account are on this computer?

Are you the administrator of this computer?
Do you have a administrator account on this computer?

The test checks the computer's memory to see if it is broken in any way. It passed the test. I have one hard drive, the internal one. It is my account, the one I lost my password for, and it is the administrator. I installed Fallout 3 just a couple of days ago. It didn't effect the computer in any way until I tried to play it yesterday.

Are you sure you have a password set and it is not empty? Can you change password from User Accounts in Control Panel? If not, use the program I linked to in my post earlier to reset it.
