One thing that really bothers me is a balloon tip that appears every time I reconnect to my home WiFi. Simplest solution is to disable balloon tips by using RegEdit. Open up this branch:
Add this DWORD value: “EnableBalloonTips” and set it’s value to “0” (zero).
Balloon tips will be disabled after your next logon.
After you tried to log in with root user three times and got the message “maximum number of log ins exceeded” you have to restart the computer.
On the GRUB menu, press “E” once to enable edit, and press “E” again on the kernel line to edit it. Near the end of this line change value “ro” to “rw” and add “init=/bin/bash” at the end of this line.
Now boot into Linux and you will have root shell access where you can change the password or do whatever you please.
