A reader needs a little help logging into her computer.

OK, I’m a doofus! My old computer that I use for Windows 7 games was down for a long time due to the stores being closed for the virus. It was the battery, so now I have a new one installed…but I forgot my logon sequence! I did not use a name, it was either something like Control, Shift, Enter Shift,Enter, etc. What will get my computer to open up for me?

You’re not a doofus. Hey, we all forget sometimes. Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del. That should bring up the field that allows you to log in.

Let me know if it works.
