    Welcome to TSG....

    On password stuff there is a security problem with it since we have no way of verifying your ownership of the computer. Password problems here at TSG are a do not help area.

    That is quite ironic, since you have to KNOW THE PASSWORD to be able to CHANGE the password.....if what you posted in the first post is true ;) and not knowing WHO is even more questionable ;)
