admin password not recognized after sleep
i have vista ultimate and decided to try out the sleep function.

when i woke my system out of sleep my admin password no longer worked.

no new program installs, no password changes, nothing.

i did open a port for vuze but that's about it.

what's up with that? is my system compromised? what can i do to get back
in? do i have to reinstall??

RE: admin password not recognized after sleep
You don't give the exact error message!

1. Tap F8 at power up, and go into Safe Mode; see if it works there.

2. http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

Read above link, download ISO file to make a bootable disk; use it to gain
entry..
