    I have a PC with windows 2000 professional loaded at factory. Went to turn
    on and there's a "Log on to Windows" screen. No idea what user name or
    password was--- don't even recall setting them.

    Anyone know how to get around this security screen?

    Thanks

  2. Have you tried administrator with no password? That would be the default if
    it was never set.

    tried that... did not work. So the log-on must have been set. A username I
    can recognize does appear in the "user name" field, but no password I've
    tried has worked.

    what else can I try?

    Hi,
    Don't know if you can help but I'll try....
    Have desktop that was working fine and now that we've returned from holidays
    it won't boot up. Goes to Microsoft Windows 98 Start-up menu. Can't operate
    in any of the 6 options it gives me including "Safe Mode". Is telling me
    that windows HIMEM.sys, windows DBLBUFF.sys and Windows IFSHLP.sys are
    missing or corrupt. Takes me to a "C" prompt and tells me to type the name
    of the Command Interpreter with an example but I'm not sure what the Command
    Interpreter is. Can someone please help me? I cannot utilize any printers,
    or other networked devices until I get this desktop up and running.
    Much appreciated
