windows could not log you on?
earlier i was looking for a way to bypass the startup screen on windows xp home
i found a thread where someone wrote that you could start-run-control userpasswords2 and then unchecked "users must enter a username and password"
after i did this it still required a click on the username
so i looked at the user list and found 3 users : administrator/owner/.net something
i deleted the .net account and moved all the information from the owner folders to the all users folders and then deleted this account as well
now when i get to the start screen there is nothing for me to choose so i hit cntrl alt del 2x and go to the logon box and typed in administrator (there is no password for this account - i know) but it says "unable to log you on because of an account restriction"
any help would be greatly apprecitated
thanks in advance
*edit* got the exact message from startup

i prolly just read that
but to sum it up:
xp home will not allow the administrator to log onto the machine in anything except safe mode
sooo - logged into safemode
created another account
start run ...
