Thank you for your question bboy58!

If you know the name of the <a href="">WordPress plugin</a>, you can disable it by renaming the folder in the plugins directory. Follow the steps below.

1. <a href"">Log into your cPanel.</a>
2. <a href"">Go to your File manager.</a>
3. Select your directory for your WordPress and click Go.
4. Go to the /wp-content/plugins folder.
5. Find the troublesome plugin and rename the folder.
6. <a href"">Try logging into your WordPress.</a>

If you need any help our <a href="">tech support</a> will be able to get into your account and fix it. Unfortunately, this is a public forum and we will not post your private information here.

Best Regards,
James R
