Good afternoon, my apologies for the delay in getting back to you. By the time you responded a day later, I was away from work and have just returned. I will be available for the next 5 days straight before I take another break. How we proceed from this point depends on whether you have data and files on your computer that you need to save. Or whether you just want to get the computer running again, and youre not worried or concerned about losing files. Also, whats the full name brand and model of your computer?

If you are not worried about files.. then do the following. shut down the computer, then press power and immediately rapidly tap the F8 key.. When you get to the advanced boot options menu, choose repair your computer. Then, When you complete that process, the computer will have reinstalled windows and allow you to set a new username and password. if you get stuck or run into any issues, let me know. I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a rating of excellent ( 5 stars ) selected and submitted below this answer or at the top right of the screen.
