I have just been given a copy of Ghost 9 by a family friend and have installed this to help back ups. No documentation was with this [second-hand] disk as the owner has just upgraded to Ghost 10.
When I now boot up, I get the log on screen ["choose account] and investigation shows that another account has been installed, which I obviously cannot/would not want to access. The only option is to log into my name anyhow [I am the only user].
I guess that the password-protected account is for Ghost based on the name it has been given - a load of numbers - but can I set up Win XP to load straight into my account? The previous owner had several accounts set up on his PC so never had this 'issue'
To remove the "Password Prompt", simply go to "Start->Run" and type in "control userpasswords2". From here, untick the "User must give username and password" option (words to that effect) and click OK. Next, type in the user-name and password for the account you want to log into by default
The "Administrator" account is the "built-in" admin account (most people use this account to access the computer in safe mode) The "ASPNET" account is created by the .Net Framework tool When you untick the option, you click OK... It should show a dialog box asking for a username and password. Type in your user account details here and click the "OK" button on this message
I haven't used a password for my account for so long. I input a passowrd in both lines of the dialogue box [enter & confirm], but the initial log on screen advises me that this is wrong. It then goes on to the welcome screen & I just press my name to start windows normally.
Would it be easier to add a new account with admin rights, remove my old one then rename the account? Would this resolve the problem?
