having problem trying to login on to win2000 pro
 
Hi: I'm having a problem trying to login on my old computer. Its win2000 pro..I replaced it recently and while cleaning up the old system I blew away my login account. Now when it boots up I get a login screen but it won't let me login. Any ideas??

Sorry but i do not help people bypass log in screens unless they are known members of long time standing who has supported this site.
FYI. It is extremely difficult to delete a user when they are logged in using the account. Windows will not allow it to be done and will deny access to deleting the file. In order to achieve such a feat means that one must have some knowledge of the operating system or had access to an application to perform deleting system files.

Another thing would be to understand that if you deleted the account then you removed any access to any files contained within that user profile as well.

So I am having a hard time in accepting this explanation.
My advice is to wipe the drive and reformat.

So your saying maybe I didn't delete my login files..At my login it won't accecpt my password. I've tried both my existing & old passwords to no avail. I don't want to reformat as I still have files I want to recover from my old system.
Thanks TomH

if you just want files take the HD out of the old computer and add it as a secondary drive to another computer. Then as admin you can set permissions on the drive to assume ownership of files. Then just grab your folders and files that you need and move to the newer HD. Done. No need to get a password or have that machine boot up. Very simple.
