Have you tried re booting and then try again?

  beastieboy 14:35 28 May 03

try booting in safe mode and see if you can get into it this way

  menorcarob2 14:55 28 May 03

i have tried many times and the only way in is via the administrator and password, but this does not give me access to all of my settings

the exact massage reads

this sytem could not log you on. make sure your user name and domain are correct, then type your password again.

ok try going into it via the administrator and then go to the control panel, and then user accounts in there, you should find your user account (hopefully) click on your user and goto change password, and type in a different password save, exit log off and try loogin in again

Could have been a possible virus, or even possibly someone else playing on your computer, buy hey all that matters is its sorted now.

If you dont have any Anti Virus software i sugest you invest in some.
