Log in as Administrator and fix it.

If you forget your password, you can try to reset it with tools on the Internet.

I think I am not allowed to tell which tool, but just google and find something that works for you.

Best regards, and good luck!

I dont know what to do, and it appears if I did I would not be allowed to tell. But in any event, after you work this out, have 2 accounts, yours, which is a regular account and an administrative account. You could always get back in with the not used administrative account. Another benefit, and you still need anti virus etc, using the normal acccount makes it a bit more difficult to catch something.

In addition, make a password recovery disc, to avoid the problem in the future.
