    lol

    Hey, if you are running any Windows system besides XP and NT, then passwords are a waste of your time! When the login screen pops up asking for your password, just press "esc" on your keyboard. Now you have access to all of your files again!

    If you want to get to something you had on your other desktop, just go to My computer, C: drive, Windows, profiles, your old name, and desktop!

    If you need any other help, let us know!

    ENTER PASSWORD:
    this is the VERY first scrn that pops up, this scrn is completely black, with white writing in the top right scrn of the computer.

    With Win98, you will get past the password to the local computer but not have access to a decently configured server.

    Even with NT, passwords are very easy to get past. Just did this on several machines over the weekend, including an Windows2000 server.

    We have been previously asked not to post the link, but there is free software on the Internet that will allow you to change the password on any NT based OS. E-mail me and I'll send you the link.

    Oh! I know what you are talkng about lauren! Here's how to reset the password!

    Open up your computer, and look on the motherboard for a small silver battery set into the motherboard itself. When you find it, take it out and leave it out for a while (I would recommend overnite). Put it back in, and there you go!

    The password should be reset! So will all of your other bios options, but those are easy enough to change.

    Good luck!
