Cannot acess System Recovery Options, need help with the registry. Kindly help.

Hi, sorry for the long question, but please help.

To start off the coast, one day out of nowhere, my PC showed a "Login process initialization failed" error As a result, I am able to go pass the stage of "Starting Windows" but can't see the login screen. The way to remedy this problem is to restore windows. Now I'm able to reach recovery system (F8) Options, but it does not allow to login me as "admin". As soon as I select the language and keyboard input mode he asks me user name and password. The strange thing is there are two options for the username "admin" and the other is 'Office' (I did not have any accounts with these names). I read an article on the Dell (my pc manufacturer) website that said to log on as an administrator. But the Recovery Options does not give me access as 'admin' for any password I tried. I tried all the standard passwords and password for my account admin on PC (which has not been named admin btw). I also tried to leave it blank, but Recovery Options points out "the user name or password is incorrect" every time. Now, I tried to find a way to work around and reached here

I quote an answer ' I ca, however, access the Recovery Console:
I found a tweak on the Internet to change the registry for a password is not necessary to enter the Recovery Console. I proved that this tweak works as expected by switching between the registry by default DWORD definition ('0') and the twisted DWORD setting ('1').  When the DWORD value is set to '1' I can access all the functions of the Console recovery, but when the value of the default value of '0' without password allows access to the Recovery Console.  The tweak I used is as follows:

---
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\setup\recoveryconsole]
"securitylevel" = DWORD: 00000001
"setcommand" = DWORD: 00000000
---

The DEFAULT value"securitylevel" = DWORD: 00000001 '00000000' is (zero).  Note that all tests, as described above has been completed with the default setting for this registry entry.

While being able to access the recovery with twisted recording Console... »

Please just help me to implement this tweak. How can I access registry without the need to log in.

Sorry for these elaborate details, I didn't want to leave anything. Thanks in advance.

The way to remedy this problem is to restore windows.

It is correct. To call the system restore, follow these steps:

  1. Use your repair Windows CD to start the computer in Windows Repair Mode. You will not have a password.
  2. Use the system restore to solve your problem.
  3. Plan in advance and create, test and document a spare, even admin account that you have a spare House key. On behalf of alternatives would easily get around your current situation.

If you do not have a CD to repair Windows, ask a friend to burn you through the control panel / backup and restore.
