Try booting into Safe Mode and logging onto the Administrator profile. Have the pc turned off, turn it on and keep tapping the F8 key until you get a black screen with different bootup options. Choose "Safe Mode" and now you will see the hidden Administrator account. Log into that, click "Yes" on the pop-up window and then click "Start" and then "Control Pannel". Go to the User accounts. Locate the profile with the bad password and then click to "Remove Password". After that is done reboot the pc again normaly and now you can log into that profile you want.

What is WPS button?


The WPS is abbreviation for Wi-Fi Protected Setup. This function should you help to set up strong wireless network password (so called "shared secret") by very easy way.
For most of users is very hard to create, remember and assign complex long password to Wi-Fi router and client devices e.g. smart phones, laptops, printers.
Short and simple (non-complex) password is weak and can be broken by hackers. You can set strong password using WPS buttons. No device management access is required.

Procedure description
Press WPS button on both devices you wish connect each other. (Router, wireless printer...)Wait until password is set automatically and devices are connected.There exists second procedure in WPS standard. It is similar to described one, but PIN number is required in addition.

Security warning!!!
Enabled WPS function is very high security risk. The WPS sets strong password, but offers another security hole to hackers. The WPS standard is affected by well known vulnerability and therefore is insecure. It is recommended to DISABLE WPS ON ALL DEVICES. Go to device setup and disable the WPS completely.

I have an Omni Book 500 That wont let me change the bios is there someway to get around that ?


I am guessing that you are attempting to use a non supervisor level password. There is usually a facility to set both a user (restricted function) password and a setup password (administrator rights access). You may need to reset the passwords within the bios setup.

Subsidy password refers to the service provider. Your phone is locked to one network and you have a different network providers SIM card inserted. The device needs to be unlocked to remove this error. Best of Luck.
