    I'm at a loss here. I had the virtual mode installed and running just fine on my computer. It started asking me for the password a week or so ago so I went into Control Panel for the virtual mode and deleted the password thinking that would keep it from asking. Now I can't login to the virtual mode at all. It still presents the login screen and it won't accept a blank password field. It won't accept the prior password either. If I can't get logged in, is there any way to reset a password? This was the admin account - there are no other accounts.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    GiGi

    1.Crack it maybe? ( http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/ ) by booting to a live CD.
    2.Boot to safe mode and get in via the real Administrator account? Since XPMode is modified I don't know if this will work.
    3.Otherwise might have to toss it and start a new one.

    I found an easier solution and wanted to post it here for future reference. If you go back to the Win 7 OS and right click on the icon or start menu option for XP mode, one of the options is Settings. Within that dialog box, there is a setting for Login Credentials. That can be set to None. That let me back into the virtual machine.
