      Because he's on it 24/7 and won't get off of it and we need to get a passwrod on it so we can regulate his time

        Ever thought of just removing the power cables, unplugging the keyboard, just saying NO!!
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2

              Excuse me, he is trying to help you out! You were asking about one way to solve your problem, he provided an alternate way.

              If someone is truly on 24/7, or enough that you need to regulate him, physical denial is the simplest way. He may need serious help if he is addicted to the computer.

                  I don't think you will be able to regulate his time by putting a password on the computer. The first thing he will do when you allow him to log on during his "regulated time" is change the password to lock you out. In addition, the moment he finds out that you are tampering with his computer, he will probably start taking additional measures to keep you out. In all honesty, given your level of knowledge, and the fact that you're brother is on 24x7, I'd give your brother the benefit of the doubt that he could out-smart you in a game of computer cat and mouse. You'd be bringing a knife to a gun fight.

                  You've got somewhat of a good idea but I don't think it's going to get you much. I agree with the others that in this case, you'd be better of tackling the problem from another direction. If your brother needs help, go about this the right way and get him some help. Don't screw around with his computer. That will instantly make you the enemy. Are there parents that can get involved here?

                  When I was real young and I used to spend too much time on the computer my mom would take the power cables away or she'd make me take it to my dad's house and leave it there. Too much time on electronic devices can cause anti-social behavior. Try talking to your brother. I mean a real heart to heart conversation, not a casual BS session over chips and beer. He needs to understand where things are at. He may be so involved with the computer that he doesn't see it, doesn't accept it, or doesn't care.

                  On the other hand, if he is on 24x7, he might have good job prospects in the computer business. Many companies expect their engineers to have pagers and cell phones and be available 24x7. It's borderline ridiculous. Sounds like that might be right up your brother's alley. Is he ready for a career yet?

                    Also, does he have XP Home or XP Pro?

                      Listen, you just grab him by his underwear and beat him senseless. Or, you could wait till he takes his monthly shower, and then grab hold of his computer. Or, wait till his hands are all dirty from pizza, then when he logs on, you'll see all the pizza sauce prints all over the right keyboard keys, then you'll guess his password from there.

                      How's that for an answer?

                        Hi
                        I have a similar problem with admin passwprd.
                        My PC crashed and when I reboot I get the page with the options to start in safe mode, last known config etc. I cannot reboot from any of the options and when I try I get the same page back in front of me. I have tried recovery console and when I get the option to type administrator password this also fails. I have never used any admin password and after three attempts I am asked to press enter and my Pc starts over again. I cannot reinstall windows XP either because when I am asked to press the F8 key to accept the disclaimer nothing happens. Can anyone advise me on what to do?

                            Sorry mate but I am new to this and I thought you may have been a little more considerate. I could not find my initial thread but I have now.
