How do I change the account name of my acer bio-protection?

During installation I must have put my password where the account information was to go. So now everytime I open up the system settings to use the protection, my password is on view... how can I change this?

thank you

    To Murdock_4, yes that is correct, the username was intended to be my password. I'm running windows Vista Business.

    To Ihurry, it's not the user name for my pc but the username for Acer Bio-Protection Fingerprint application which came pre-installed on my pc, I just had to fill in the fields to activate it.... and must of filled them out wrong. Now the user name is appearing as my password.

    It is however connected to my user folder as when I look in my C drive/users, it appears as the password name and not the user name I gave my pc (which appears in the users in Control Panel)

    any suggestions?

Hmmmmm.....

If the folder in "C:Users" is the intended password, I would have to agree with lhurry. If changing the password and username through the control panel does not solve the problem, then
"Acer Bio-Protection Fingerprint Application" must somehow have a higher authority than the administrator.

If this is the case, I can't help you too much without some research on both ends. I strongly reccomend, though, that you try the following:

  1. Try changing the username and password through control panel.
  2. If it doesn't work, make sure you're using an administrative account.
3. Go into the "Acer Bio-Protection Fingerprint Application" and see if there aren't options (Probably under Tools > Options) that allow you to re-enter some or all of the problematic settings.

4. If all else fails, http://www.google.com/.

Restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

if this fails to remove your password


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.


Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.


click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

Brendella@ charterForgot password on Acer Netbook....ASPIREone. How do I change it and I want to change my uer name?


a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.
once the battery has been removed an alarm could go off ((dont be alarmed))
click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

Restore my Acer Aspire One AOA110-1588 PC Notebook


Do you mean that, in system information the users name is name after your friend?

Goto control panel, goto system,goto advanced system,click computer name, put the name you like click change and then click ok.

Changing user name- goto control panel, goto user accounts select create a new user account or manage another account fill the blank except if you don't want to password it, set it as administrator if everything is done, log off then log to the created account backup the files from the other account. Then delete the account of your friend under User Accounts. The only thing left will be name to you. Except some other name he/she change in registry like registered name.

Hope it helps
