You can set a BIOS password, which means hitting DEL or F2 or F10 when you first start the PC, then finding which line will do it. Write it down, because if you forget it, you're screwed, literally.
Or, if you use Windows, just set a User Password and not let anyone in.The BIOS PW is bet but you cannot lose the password, or you are in big trouble.

Am looked out of all dur to trying to log onto my dds computer in another town


1. Your Dad's computer must have remote login enabled for you to get into it's file system. Generally, you must also have an administrator-level account (user name and password) on that computer.

2. If your Dad's computer is set up as a webserver, and you want to change the website remotely, then it would have to have a link for a site administrator login. This should be a secure (https) page.

Those things have to be set up at the computer by someone with administrator level access. If nobody knows the password for an administrator level account on that computer, there probably is not much that can be done other than to go to the computer and copy or e-mail whatever files are accessible. Some people sell "password unlocking" software, but I cannot vouch for its effectiveness, nor its security - if it contains a Trojan Horse it would make the computer open to whatever hacker installed the Trojan Horse.

On the other hand, if your Dad had a webpage set up on a web hosting service, you do not need access to your Dad's computer to get to it. If you don't have the administrator username or password for the page, you may be able to get the hosting service to provide you with access once you show your legal authority to do so. This also holds for e-mail accounts.

My computer starts in safe mood ask for systems password i donot have and will not do anything else


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

I want to make sure my wireless signal is secure. How do I do this?


I assume that you have a wireless router that is connected to your Motorola cable-modem.

Connect to the web-server "inside" the router, and configure the wireless network:
* set an SSID -- the "name" for your network
* set an encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network

Now, your wireless communications between your computer and your router will be encrypted, i.e., "secure".

Also, having a password keeps other computers out, if their owners do not know the password.

Iam lossing my laptop password that laptop model is asus eee laptop so kindly requsting give me solution


This issue is due to the deteriorated CMOS, RTC (coind cell) battery, which retains the BIOS, time settings etc including the poweron password. Get the CMOS/RTC battery replaced by a profession and the laptop will retain/hold the password.

Goodluck!

You need to set up a network password. The easiest is to set up WEP (wired equivalent privacy). Chapter 3 of the user manual (downloadable from http://kb.netgear.com/app/) will give you a tutorial and will walk you through set up. This will keep others from using your wireless access. Make sure that you record your network password for use with your other wireless units.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

Type 192.168.0.1. in your address bar. It will prompt for a username and password, by default username is admin and password is blank. Then find the wireless sercuity or security tab and change type to WEP- Personal. You'll need to set a wep key. Then you'll have to resetup network on all wireless computers or connections.

Password on shared documents on a workgroup


Password Protect Folders in XP
To password protect a folder built into Windows XP (for other Windows flavors, there are some freeware/shareware programs out there).
If you have a log in password for your account, this can be used to protect folders from other users. If not, you need to creat one. Your hard drive must be formatted using NTFS (which it probably is unless you're dual booting with another operating system). Here's what to do...
Right-click the folder that you want to make private and choose "Properties" (or Alt+Double-click). Go to the "Sharing" tab and check the "Make this folder private" box.
private-folder1.jpg
Click Apply . If you do not have a password on your account, a box will pop up asking if you want to assign a password. This must be done if you want to make the folder private, so click Yes . You will need to use your password to log on to your computer from then on.
Type in a password then confirm it. Click the "Create Password" button then close the Password window.
Click OK in the Properties dialog box.
Now anyone else logged on to your computer can't access that file without knowing your password.
