Try running an antivirus program ie. Norton (Symantic) from the CD during the computer startup. You make have to enable booting from CD in your Bios (system settings) by pressing F1, F2, F9 or Delete as your caomputer first starts. (sorry not sure which one for your computer). Navigation instructions will be at the bottom of your screen when you get there. It will be in the 'BOOT' or 'SYSTEM STARTUP' section. Make sure the system is instructed to boot from the CD/DVD before your hard drive.

I can't log in to my account on my Dell PC?


Now which operating system are you running ?

Forgetting your Windows XP login details might at first seem like a disaster. Don't panic though; your login password and username are easily recovered by changing the login details to that of the administrator.

Begin with your computer turned off, and then turn it on. You will need to log in to your computer manually and this can only be done in the load-up screens. Wait until your computer reaches the Windows login screen. The screen usually displays a "Welcome" message. Press and hold the "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Delete" keys two times at the Windows login screen. Your computer will automatically reveal a Classic Login box. Type "Administrator" (without quote marks) into the "Username" field and leave the "Password" field blank. Windows automatically creates an Administrator account when your computer is first booted up; in this account you can alter or change any user's login details. Navigate through the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel." In the Control Panel explorer, double-click on the "User Accounts" icon to open a new window. Select "Change an Account" in the User Accounts window and select the username you want to alter. From here you can edit the user's name and password, but you can also alter the user's picture, account type and .NET password. Restart your computer to login with your new username and password.

I am trying to follow the instruction on how to secure my wireless connection. And the first thing i need to see is the router of my computer which i don't know. some sites tells me to type 192.168.1.1 to...


You need to first make sure the router is connected by Ethernet cable.
Depending on the Make of your router there are different ways of logging into the router.
Could be http://192.168.0.1 http://192.168.1.1 http://192.168.2.1 http://192.168.1.254
Username: Admin or User (Try both cases) Password: Password or Admin or Leave Blank (Try both cases)
Onces you have logged onto the router you should be able to locate the settings for the Wireless encryption.

Passord for home pc will not work what do i do to log in our home computer is a HP and my son set his password but now forgot it and we cannot log in on any users how do i get logged in without the startup...


Try to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete. The screen have to change and a dialog to appear with Username/Password.
Type "Administrator" (without the quotes) for username and leave password empty. Press Enter. If you can log in as administrator in that way, you can force set password for your user account in Control Panel/User Accounts

My laptop has a password and i typed in the password that it should bet yet it isnt working, as soon as i turn the computer on it comes to a screen saying enter passowrd. My laptop is an acer travelmate...


Is this computer a member of a domain or just local?
If a domain member, contact your administrator to reset the password for you.

If local (or in a workgroup)
Log in as a local administrator, then you may be able to reset your password.

When logging in, type, Administrator as the user name and type in your password (if you remember). Try password as blank first if you haven't set a password. Default password is usually 12345

Once logged in:

Click Start, right-click My Computer, select Manage.
Under Computer Management --> Expand System Tools --> Local Users and Groups, the select Users folder.

Locate your user name on the right pane, right-click on your username, then select Set Password. Change your password.

Pls let me know if this solution worked for you.
