Once you reach the logon screen press the Shift key 5 times or press Alt+Shift+PrintScreen to open Command Prompt. This requires you to enter the password of a healthy admin account. This is because you can use it from Command Prompt, from batch scripts, from within your own programs see below or even when you are unable to log in to Windows from another account. How do I login once I have put in users int he UserList key?. I use the hidden but not disabled accounts to provide share access in a workgroup environment, so I don't want to see them on the logon page. I will be following this post in hopes of a resolution! Just search for cmd and then right-click on the command prompt icon in the Start menu or Start screen.

The other two automatically installed themselves in my browser and began to constantly reboot my browser making me lose the data that I had stored on the webpage I was working on at the time.
