Thank you for your question bboy58!

If you know the name of the WordPress plugin, you can disable it by renaming the folder in the plugins directory. Follow the steps below.

1. Log into your cPanel.
2. Go to your File manager.
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. Try logging into your WordPress.

If you need any help our tech support 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,
