Question about Computers & Internet
We gave our grandchildren our unused desktop. Recently our son-in-law called to ask for our Windows XP Administator's password to download a program.
I informed him that I don't remember using a password, only gave the PC a name. I did not want togive it a password because I thought that I might misplace or forget it. When I owned the PC I never had a problem downloading. What do you think the problem may be due to?
Thank you for any help you may provide.
If you did not set a password then there is not a password. It may state "Provide administrator password if available...but no problem, pass the instructions below to your son-in-law and if there is a password he can change it, he does not need to know what the password is. Let me know how it turned out. Hope this helps.
