    On my daughters computer, she reset her password and now
    the computer will not let her access it. Says invalid password or
    some such.

    I believe it has a Windows 2000 system.

    Does anyone know a way to go around this? I really hate to have it
    completely wiped. She has alot of nice pictures on there.

    Spook...who has a sad daughter.

    Me, I don't change my password. Never. Ever.

    My daughter...not so much. She said she changed the password
    to "I love Justin Bieber" or whatever his name is. Point is, she now
    wants a new computer for Christmas. Why? Her computer still works,
    you just can't use it.

    Silly girl.

    Maybe she made a typo when she was typing it? Like instead of "I love Justin Beiber" she wrote "I lovr Justin Beiber"?

    Found this on Yahoo answers:

    idk if this works for Windows 2000, but on my XP, when the computer is starting i press F5 keep pressing it until a screen comes up and ask u what to do, then pick SAFE MODE... if the thingy ask u for a Username and password type ADMINISTRATOR for username and dont type anything for password, then got o control panel and look for user accounts... then remove the passwod from ur son's account

    Unless she set herself as the Admin...then, well.​

    Pray for it. Always works for me... I pray, and then take a few minutes break to get a drink or something, and waa-laa the password or the fix pops into my head... [​IMG] [​IMG]
