  1. I bought a laptop at a garage sale with xp loaded on it. I want/need to find a way to log on to this laptop so i can remove/bypass the old users so I can use it. I have tried the following but nothing happens, no admin screen comes up. Can up help?

    Ctrl-Alt-Del: While you are at the Windows XP Welcome screen, if you press the Ctrl, Alt and Delete keys (you press them together simultaneously, not one at a time) twice in a row you will invoke the old standard Windows login screen.

    this happens only in XP pro, if its XP Home, then restart in safe mode to get the admin logon option.

    faling that download Hirens Boot CD of the web and use the password reset tool to remove any passwords
