    Account-confusion

    It seems i have one additional account beside my restricted and administrator-accounts.

    i call them:
    ....X restricted -Account
    ....XA Administrator-account

    In restricted account when i enter
    cmd
    i see this third account.
    ....x_2
    in admin.-account i see:
    ....X
    I am totally confused now.

    these are also the directories i see in
    dokumente und einstellung(german)
    dont know the english word

    2. beside this i wonder about the admininstrator-account i see when starting in safe mode. How is this called?
    Thanks

    Update
    2. In safe mode its more confusing.

    I see two accounts named:

    administrator pass needed
    ......XA No pass needed
    ---------------------------
    setting cmd in command-line i see
    ....X-2
    confused now.

    Maybe this third account was created automatically when i had to delete a corrupt one.
    Thanks

    Yes, XP makes a Admin account. So boot to safe mode and take a count Step 3 in the link.

    In Safe Mode, you should bee able to set or change the passwords.

    If you can not, something is real wrong.
