Hello,
Let me know the OS you are using. Is it the default "Administrator" account or the account that you have created as administrator got disabled ?
Good Luck.
I am using Windows XP, service pack 3,it is default administrator account.

Hello,

Try this 1

1) When you switch ON your computer, start tapping the "F8" key to get

"Windows Advanced Options"( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep

tapping the F8 key)

2) Select "Safe Mode"

3) When the desktop appears then

Click on Start --> Run --> Type compmgmt.msc and press Enter.

"Computer Management" window will be opened.

4) On the left side of the window, double-click on "Local Users and Groups" -->

Double-click on "Users".

On the right side you can find the users.

Right-click on the administrator\ Your User Account --> Properties --> Uncheck

the check box "Account is disabled" --> Click on OK.

5) Now restart your PC and start in normal mode.

Good Luck.

Hello,
Go to safe mode and wait until the process gets completed. After that, desktop will appear.
Good Luck.

Hello,
Try this 1
When that screen appears without users account and having only the "turn off" option, at that time
hold the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys --> press "del" key twice. Now a log in window will appear asking you to enter user name and password. Enter user name as "administrator" and if a password is set then enter that password --> Click on OK. --> Then click on "Yes" button to go to safe mode. When the desktop appears follow the below instructions.
Good Luck.
Yes, My problem is solved, the information which you have given is useful for me.
