many thanks, process running smoothly until get to part where have to input administrator password - cant for the life of us remember what it could be. is there possibly a password that we could use to override one we put in?

If you never set a password, leave blank and press the Enter key.

tried leaving blank but getting "The password is not valid. Please retype the password"

See click here for resetting administrative password. Note that the download link is right at the bottom of the web page!

Worked ok for me.

Go into safe mode. when in windows go to MSCONFIG from Run Startup tab and remove programs that do not need to start with computer at boot
