Uninstall Time Machine
« on: January 09, 2010, 11:51:06 AM »
I forgot the user name and password for Time Machine – how can I recover them to uninstall the product? Unfortunately I get all the time a screen to input the user name and password and it goes no further to uninstall Time Machine without it.

I think you can fix mbr and then uninstall ctm.

Hopefully it helps.

I think you can fix mbr with windows recovery console and then uninstall ctm.

Hopefully it helps.

Hi, v941726

suggest you backup data first, then fix mbr with windows recovery console.
After restart OS, you can uninstall ctm.

Hopefully it helps.

yeah. i forgot how to fix mbr in win 7 from the command prompt...recovery console is gone in win 7.   i needed a flush and fill anyway.  but thanks

i have my machine ready to flush and fill at a moments notice w/o performing tedious backups..i can be back and fully functional in a little over an hour with not a thing lost....probably quicker than a restore..

its still something to be looked at by devs i think...cuz newbs and grannys wont have that luxury like us

What do I have to do to fix the MBR?  The computer runs fine except the password I know I gave Time Machine is not working.

Culzephyr, do yourself a favor and read this topic : http://forums.comodo.com/help-ctm/username-and-password-t70504.0.html

p.s. try hitting 'Home' key at bootup and  entering your password on CTM's bootup console, if username is required input "Administrator" as username !
