    At work we were changing over the server so I gave my laptop to the IT guy to change the server password and settings. Well, he logged it off and now I can't log on to my computer. I don't ever remember entering in any kind of password when I got the computer or user name. The freaking IT guy screwed me all because he assumed that I knew this password and now I'm screwed because I can't even get on my computer. Can anyone help me?

    there is software out there to retrieve your password if your IT guy can't get it fixed.

    I did NOT screw you over.... oh wait a minute. LOL


    Your IT guy should be able to get you back to work, if he wants to keep HIS job.

    If he made the mistake, it seems that he should be the one that fixes it. Especialy since he is the IT guy. :ugh:
