My laptop will suddenly not accept my Windows login administrators ID or password so I cannot use it. I have loaded a second copy of XP Pro on so I can see the old one temporarily. What do I need to edit or remove to make the old copy work again witout a login ?

Save all your data and format, reinstall from scratch.

There are other options - do a google search for removing admin passwords.

In 2K and XP locate Documents and Settings folder and backup everything to a spare media and format the hard drive from scratch
