Unlocking Mac 0s 9

I bought these computers from a school district and they are locked. Is there any way to unlock them without losing the programs? I would like to donate them to my children's school with the educational programs on there. Thank you in advance.

Unlock keyboard on no. 9

Gently remove the key. Blow air on it with a can of air spray. Then blow air on the area beneath the 9 key. Then look to see if a little piece of grit is in the board beneath the 9 on the board an in the 9 key.. If there is you're going to have to get it out. Fine tip tweezers can do that. If this doesn't work, as a desperation move, since you have nothing left to lose, put it in the upper rack of your dishwasher without the plastic 9 key.

If that doesn't work buy a dishwasher-safe Logitech 410 keyboard for your replacement. You may get a better price on eBay than Amazon. DO NOT pay the list price of $40 + S&H to Logitech. You'll get a much better deal elsewhere. They also are great keyboards and they have a great touch. I'd buy one or two for later on anyway. They're not going to be available forever.

How do I unlock a stolen computer?

The school cannot 'block' the computer.If you are asking how to get round a password, so you can use a stolen computer, you are on the wrong site.That is a criminal activity. You would be far better contacting the school and telling them you bought it innocently.
If you bought stolen property you should be trying to get your money back from the seller. Apart from that, are there no police where you live? They are the ones that are interested in people that sell stolen property.

The Norton Anti Virus is interferring with the payroll software on my computer, I need to correct this.

usually Norton has a little pop up box that tells you it hasn't recognized a program you are working on .. if not go into Norton and check the setting ..there should be a place that shows what was rejected and also a place to make allowances for the programs you want Norton to accept. But if you are not the administrator you most likely will not be able to do this. you will have to have the firm administrator do this.

Myspace is blocked

If you are at work or at school, most companies and school districts have determined that Myspace is not a site they want you to be at while using their networking systems.

If you are at home, you might want to see if any protection software running on your machine has been set to block pages. If you have further questions, come back and ask us.
