ust press and hold "Ctrl" and "Alt" and press "Delete" twice while the Welcome Screen is displayed.

Type in "Administrator" as the username, and leave the password field blank

Delete the name and type in


Press OK

it should then log in unless someone has assigned a password to the Administrator account
