    Hi,

    At the moment my Q's are all over the place time wise. Sorry about this, it is due to the crazy shift pattern i work :twisted: .
    Panic not, this is only until the 1st December when i start my IT job :biggrin
    I will aim to pin the Q in the evening and then answer/post a new one the following evening :thumbleft

    Anyway, here goes:

    Your friend has XP Professional installed on their computer. They are unable to get past the administrator login and welcome screen. Which is causing the problem?

    A) ntldr is missing from the boot partition

    B) WPA has locked the system

    C) Windows is attempting to connect to the update site

    D) SFC has detected a difference in the NT32.dll file

    Answer tommorow morning :biggrin

    I would just ask for a clarification.

    What are you referring to when you say WPA, Boyce? Is that Windows Product Activation, or Wi-Fi Protected Access? Both are features of XP Pro and both are referred to using WPA as the acronym....

    Sorry, Freddie. WPA meaning Windows Product Activation.

    [hide]If I'm learning this part of the course right and feel free to PM me and correct me!
    I'm guessing D just on the info my training provider is giving me.
    NTLDR boots the computer up and as the PC is getting to the Login screen means that NTLDR is fine.
    Never heard of Windows Product Activation (I blame the training provider) [/hide]

    I'm thrilled with Fergal's reply - that's exactly what happens in the reality of Desktop Support.

    First thing this morning I had a 'Team Leader' (who logs in to his PC every morning) suggesting that 'The System' would not accept his username or password.

    This is not the first time this has happened, it's at least once a fortnight.

    Ok, everybody, as this is a learning environment, - what's the problem?

    :blink

    Apologies if I've sort of hijacked the thread Boycie - only for a minute I hope!
