Dear Thumper:

\015\012If you set the password for windows please try the steps
\015\012below if it is bios password you need to contact your
\015\012computer manufacturer
\015\012Reboot your machine.
Press F8 before the Windows boot screen appears.
You will be be prompted with a boot options menu.
Select the Start Windows in Safe Mode option.
Click through several self-explanatory screens until your
\015\012reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.
Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and
\015\012640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have
\015\012been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You
\015\012will not be able to change this mode even in Display options,
\015\012while Windows is running in Safe Mode.
Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default
\015\012settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be
\015\012no password for this account.
The Safe Mode Welcome screen might display some of the other
\015\012users on your system.
Login as the admin.
Press Yes at the prompt asking if you would like to continue
\015\012using Safe Mode.
Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can
\015\012change any of the other passwords for user on the machine.
\015\012Make any changes you want.
Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys
\015\012(i.e. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup
\015\012normally.
Login as the user for which you set the password.
\015\012
\015\012Please feel free to get back to me If you need any further
\015\012assistance.
\015\012Regards,
\015\012Mohammed.
