  1. hi im a windows 7 user with my HP PC and once again i turn to techspot for help :)

    so yesterday on my admin account i were playing around alittle with cmd ( I know i shouldnt have done that) and i typed in this:

    net user Thomas /active:yes

    thomas is my user name and it said command completed succesfully

    but nothing happen so i turned the comkputer off and i went to bed...

    the next morning when i started the computer i couldnt log in because the password didnt work even thus i tried to type in in several times.... and i tryed with no password still doesnt work so then i went on my moms account on the computer which aint an administrator just a regular user and created a password file for my usb stick so i could reset the password(it asks me if i type in the wrong password to reset the password) so when i did that and resetted the password and click next it says that it couldnt reset it...

    so what do i do now i really dont wanna reinstall windows as i got over 600gb used memory PLEASE HELP ME!

    thank you in advance regards Thomas :)
