    Hi - I accidentally checked "disable built in administrator account" while I
    was trying some stupid things in my PC. Now I can not log in to my PC. Is
    there any way to by pass the log in screen? I have windows -XP. I tried to
    log in from safemode command prompt option, but it is still taking me to the
    log in screen instead of displaying DOS-prompt. Please help. TIA

    AFAIR, the standard Nordahl password resetting CD has a facility to
    re-enable accounts. After resolving this issue, consider creating a second
    admin account. Having a single admin account can be very unforgiving.
