    Cannot Enter A Password On Logon Screen

    I have recently set a password for my administrator account because some
    relatives were coming over and i didnt want them to muck around with
    computer. I then tried logging on and i cannot enter my password. It displays
    a picture of a chessboard and the word administrator underneath. it then has
    the word password in smaller letters below and a little to the left. when i
    move the cursor around the screen it changes from an arrow point to a hand
    around the picture. I have tried clicking on there but no box opens for me to
    enter my password.

    If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards Andrew

    Hi, Andrew,
    Type: Control userpasswords2 on the start-run line.
    follow the screens and you can insert your password there.
