    Something happened to my computer and am looking for more ideas. All of the sudden our computer started asking for a password to open up Windows 7. The weird thing is I don’t recall even setting a password? I’ve tried everything to open our computer up and can’t get anywhere?! I’ve tried the sticky keys trick, Ophcrack, PC login Now, and nothing seems to work?! The password clearing ISO programs seem to start up fine, but end up saying they can’t find anything? Even after clearing the Administrator password, it still says that the password is invalid?! I need to get pictures and music off before I can do a full system restore! What can I do?! has anybody heard of this?!
