you need a virus scanner on the PC You usually goto start> Programs> and then look for the installed program - as mentioned below - run it and there you will an option to scan
Not sure what you may already have, PCs are often supplied with a commercial product such as Norton, Mcaffee or Kaspersky Usually the virus definitons get updated for the first 90days and then you have to purchase the product updates for an annual fee
Check to see what program you have - if is out ofdate, you will need to
  1. update and subscribe to the program or
  2. remove the program and install one of the free versions avaibable
There is also a good online virus scanner Heres is a link to one of the online scanners http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/
If you want to use one of the free programs - I suggest avast, I use that on all friends and family machines - but there are others

one thing you can do is to disconnect the CMOS battery for about a minute or so to let the charge drain away, then re-connect it ( you could always renew it at the same time as they don't last forever ) This will reset the BIOS to default settings and a password will no longer be required. Good luck !

The only way to break the code is to download one of the codebreakers available on the Internet. The problem with these programs is that they basically try a random set of characters until they find the right ones. Depending on the complexity of the password the person chose, even with a powerful computer, that can still take a long time. Normally the programs do allow you to set certain parameters. If you had some rough idea what the password might be it would reduce the time drastically.

There are a few programs out there that claime to be able to "break" the password out of the file allowing you to acess it without restriction. I've never actually tried any of them. If you want to take the chance on one of them just make sure you save a copy of the file in a safe place in case the breaker corrupts your file.
