    You can do this on Windows 95/98, but not sure about ME. Run a search for <*.pwl > rename any file that shows up to .bad, Then reboot. When the box that ask for your password comes back up, just press ok. Then the next time you reboot, it will not ask you. Remember that you will be loosing all saved passwords by doing this. So make sure you know your passwords before doing this. :cool:

    Hi BigRinAUB,

    Unless you mean a CMOS or BIOS password.
    They come up before windows has started.
    If the machine you have bought is a Home PC
    setup then its not too difficult to deal with, but if
    you've bought a laptop thats more of a problem.
