It's not important / necessary to change your email passwords / user names / anything. What's important is that you *erase* such settings so if he tries to log onto any website or into any program that the program(s) or website(s) ask for a username / password. This is most easily accomplished through Internet Options where you clear forms, passwords, autofills, cookies, etc.

Now, if you want a *super easy* fix, and assuming you're a Windows user, go to your admin settings and change your username's password (so he doesn't know it) then create a new username / password for him. That way he gets a "new" user account and *nothing* (except programs like Office, various games, applications, etc.) gets transferred over. Any installed programs will not (*should* not) carry over your user data.

BEST way to solve your problem is to reload the factory image using the restore CDs or BIOS options so that when he turns on the computer, it has the fresh "out of the box experience."

I want to change the username and password please as im giving my hubby my old laptop

After you change your yahoo password (see yahoo help menus!) DO NOT check the "remember me" options... UNCHECK the "remember me" options on the login screens. Other options: abandon your yahoo email address and create a new one.

Im handing over my old laptop to my hubby and am trying to change password and username

This looks like the 3rd post you've made on this forum regarding this issue. Sounds like you need to hire a tech consultant (or bake some cookies for your neighbor's teenager.) If you're using Windows, you might try Control Panel / User Accounts -- or start baking cookies.

How to reset my password


if you already have access you have to go into control panel and select user account

in user account they give you options to choose, one of them is changing your password

to verify you are the user for that account the program will ask for your old password before you can change or reset it

if you are trying to reset your windows password before you log on you will need software to do that

youtube has videos of free software to help you acheive that

I forgot my passord on my user log in page how do i remove that, you know the page that says christine and kevin with little icons above them and when you click them they have passwords well i forgot mine...

If you are looking to restore your computer to factory settings then you will need to use your Dell restoration discs.
If you remember the password to one of the two accounts and they are both administrators you should be able to use one to clear the password from the other. This varies by operating system, but by your description it sounds like you are using at least Windows XP or newer.
In XP login to the account that you know the password forgo to Start > Control PanelIn the Control Panel go to User AccountsLocate the Account that you do not know the password forSelect remove my password
In Vista/7 go to start > control panelSelect User Accounts and Family SettingsSelect Add or Remove User Accounts and Double click your accountThis should now give you the ability to Remove or Change your password for that account

Shut the laptop down now push the power button and very very quick after that keep on tapping the F8 key on the keyboard.(Follow thses steps if the OS is Vista or Win 7) U will see Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking then u will see Safe Mode with Command Prompt highlight that with the arrow keys press enter. U will see a Black Sreen then put the flowing command there " net user administrator /active " then press enter. Reboot the laptop u will see a new user account named administarator click on it then on start type in user u will see user above click on it all the user will be there click on ur old user account. There u will have option to change or remove the login password do that and then restart us laptop. U should be able to login now. When u come to the desktop click on start type in CMD above CMD will come right click on it then run as admin. in the black box type in " net user administrator /active: no " restart the laptop again issue resolved.
If the OS is XP restart the laptop in Safe Mode using the F8 key u will see a new account there the follow the steps Start - Control Panel - User Account - Click on the Old User account - then create a password this will remove the old password and put in a new password.

No password to enter computer

When the login screen comes up and asks for the username and password.
Username - Administraion
there should be no password for that account.
Once into the system go to the control panel and then to user accounts and change what you desire.

XP home hold F8 untill you get to the boot mode and choose Safe Mode once in to the system go to control panel and user accounts and do the same as above.
If this doesnt work please respond with OS.

Reset a password

if you mean the bios password you need to remove the bios battery for about 10 minutes, if you mean the windows log on password, then you will have to get into windows in safe mode (press F8 on boot up) and get in as administrator and delete or change the password on your user account.
