Default deleted admin

I made the mistake of deleting myself from the computer; I was trying to get rid of the log in screen and now my pc will only boot to the log in screen and it wonÂ’t let me do anything else. Hopefully there is someone out there that could let me know how to reverse my silly mistake.

Have you tried entering your self in the BIOS. it you deleted yourself from your computer, you only have your users. You can still log-in in the BIOS as admin then you can fix it . Hope it works.

You can start your computer with a MS-DOS boot disk.
Then change to $systemroot$\system32\config
delete the file named sam,the restart your computer in normal mode.type user as "administrator" password as blank.

Importance!precondition is your OS must be "XP or 2000",and the system partition isnt NTFS file system.

Oterwise, you must have winpe software.
