Please Help?

By doodle820 ·
I made a networking account by accident on my other computer. It told me to print/save the info, but my printer was not hooked up, I did save it, but in the same computer (so stupid) which I cannot log on to Windows XP with because it asks for a password that I do not remember. Now, I turn the computer on and it asks for the networking password, I'm pretty sure its the WEP code that I received when I made the account. Is there anyway I can retrieve it/cancel the networking without having to know the password first or reformat the whole computer? Btw, the computer I am using now has nothing to do with the networking that I created by accident lol.

Use the Options button

If all you did was create a network, then the options button will display your workgroup name and local computer name as a drop down after selection.

One would almost think that you are trying to bluff a way to surpass an admin logon;-)

What exactly you did do?
If you were setting up WEP, where were you changing information? Try to recreate your steps for us.

TR members do not assist password recovery. Do not respond to this thread

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc..
