  • Problems with logon


    I am experiencing a problem in my XP home laptop nobody in this world could solve: I am not managing to login in the computer.

    I use my computer as a stand-alone unit (not in a network).

    I think the problem started after I connected in a WIFI when I was travelling.

    After I connected to this network I used the computer normally and then shutdown the computer.

    The next time I tried to use the computer on startup the computer asked me in the welcome screen for the password (which I never had).

    Whatever I type (including blank) as a password it answers:
    "The local policy of the system does not permit you to logon interactively"

    If I press Ctrl+Alt+Delete while at the welcome screen and try to login manually to the administrator account it tells me:

    "Unable to log you on because of an account restriction".

    I tried to reset the password (with Peter Nordahl's software, but it seems that the problem is relative to the permissions of the users.

    The same behaviour occurs in the safe mode.

    I think the WIFI network where I connected locked my computer in a domain and does not let me login with a blank password.
    All my work is in the laptop.

    I have also a desktop running Win XP. Is it possible to use it to change the security settings of my laptop? Astrumi is a solution for this?
    What about ntrights.exe?

    Could you help me?

    All tips are very welcome.
