Specs: Windows XP
I have inadvertently switched the network ID in the Network Identification Wizard from business use to home use i.e. not part of a network, I though this would make it easier to use the laptop at home.
Now I cannot get into the laptop at all, it will not accept my passwords, and the domain space is not visible. I have tried to restore but that does not work, and I have tried safe mode but that also asks for me to log in.
Can anyone help or will I have to re-install windows?

you do not need to reinstall windows load windows with safemode and command prompt then select type or select Administrator and do not enter a password then select enter this will load up the system administrator in command line setup then once in system Administrator type net user and then press enter this lists all the users on the computer then type net user username * then reset the password type a new password for the user and then confirm the password then press enter it should say this command completed sussessfully then type shutdown -r and logback in nornal mode with the new password leave feedback how you get on thanks BJSeal91

The problem is that I cannot get into safe mode with command prompt without windows asking me for a password. I tried putting Administrator and no password but it just says that it cannot connect to the network.
Thanks for the help

mmm If this is a company laptop, and you're not in the Admin group there..., you are really into asking Admin (at work) to reset it all for you...
