    Windows XP locked!

    I have been browsing this site for most of the day, downloading various functions and brushing up on my C coding. I do not recall when exactly, but I have executed code from this site which has turned out to be malicious! On my next login to windows XP, I discovered that my account password had been changed and I could not log in. I rebooted, tried my password but to no avail, I then noticed that another account had just vanished form the log in screen. I rebooted again and was just presented with the Guest account. So now Im left pretty much limited. Safe mode is also useless, it doesnt give me no login accounts, just blank screen. Does anyone have any suggestions. My computer can dual boot to linux mandrake. So I have full access to the windows files and folders via linux, if this helps. I cannot think what to do, I am at the the minute in the guest account. Thanks in advance.

    And just a last note to "quzah" by the look of your reply, I get the impression that you are being dont believe what I am saying or you are just a complete idiot who needs knocking down a peg or two. Now one thing straight - I have got better things to do than post cock and bull stories about executing untoward code. And the last thing I want if I have a problem is little boys like you, trying to impress people by posting "look at me, im a tosser" remarks on the board. Now go do yourself a favour. skip along to bed with your hot water bottle and wait for mumsy to tuck you in with your milk and biscuits, you pathetic moron.

    There are lots of places on the internet where you can become infected with malware. This site is not one of them.

    You probably downloaded a virus in the background.

    I would reinstall Windows.

    LMAO
    ...
    Whether or not it was code from this site (which I doubt very much), what are you doing compiling and running code that you don't understand or that you don't know what it does? Because if you knew what it did then you would know that was not code from this site ok?

    Very very extremely well said. He does this all the time just ignore him (most of us do).

    This thread is closed.

    I know of no code on this site that would do this, and even if there was, only an idiot would compile and run code that either he didnt understand, or didnt come from a totally reputable source (of which, an internet based forum is obviously not).
