Question about Computers & Internet
I bought unit at city auction.
If I recall correctly, you can get passed the password and use the computer, but you cannot do anything that would require an administrator password. In order to get passed that, you would have to format (because it will not let you reload Windows without a password) and load a fresh copy of Windows. I hope this helps.
IF WINDOWS IS USER FRIENDLY, I AM NOT A USER!!!
