If you don't know the username OR passwords to get on the corporate laptop, download a software called Ophtcrack (sp?).  It will give you all logon passwords and usernames for the laptop.

Also another possibility is to load one of the graphical Linux OS's available on the market.  Load the new OS on a cd, they press F12 to enter into the boot device menu, and select CD drive.  You might want to try Umbuntu (Windows-like Linux OS)

Good luck!

How to Reset Windows Password on ThinkPad Laptop

For IBM ThinkPad Laptop or Lenovo <a href="">ThinkPad password reset</a>, there are common password problems about the BIOS password, Power-on password, Hard drive password, etc. Here we will discuss how to reset ThinkPad password based on Windows 7, XP, Vista, Server 2003, 2008 domain, etc.<br /> <br />Firstly, <b>ThinkPad password</b><b> reset</b><b> with password reset disk<br /></b>Well, the first way is the most time saving and money saving to recover lost ThinkPad password. Pity that most of ThinkPad laptop users may without this named ThinkPad password reset disk. Notice that we should create the disk before lost or forgotten password or at the time that we set the password for logon Windows system. The below are steps to create and use the <a href="">Windows 7 password reset disc</a> for ThinkPad Windows 7 laptop:<br /> 1. Insert a CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive into the driver. <br /> 2. Click Start - Control Panel - User Accounts and Family Safety - User Accounts.<br /> 3. Select "Create a password reset disk" - "Forgotten Password Wizard" on the left pane.<br /> 4. Click "Next" and follow the Wizard to create password reset disk.<br /> Once we forgot Win 7 password for ThinkPad computer at the login screen and input an incorrect password, click "Reset Windows Password" and insert the password reset disk. The Password Reset Wizard will lead us create a new password to remove the lost or forgotten Windows 7 password.<br /> <br />Secondly, <b>unlock ThinkPad Windows XP password with Windows Installation Disc<br /></b>1. Start PC with Installation disc. Choose "Accept" once it asks to repair your current Windows installation, press "R" to run repair and also allow PC to repair by copying files to hard drive.<br /> 2. The PC will reboot, and then display "Press any key to continue." Please do not press any key.<br /> 3. Let computer restart the installation and at the same time please notice the words shown at the bottom of screen. Once "Installing Devices" comes up, press "Shift +F10".<br /> 4. Then input "nusrmgr.cpl" and press "Enter".<br /> 5. On the User Accounts windows, choose the "Administrator account". Then there will be listed all user accounts of the system.<br /> 6. Select the account that has to remove or reset password.<br /> With Installation CD to break ThinkPad password also can be used on system based on Windows 7, Vista, 2000, Server 2008, etc.<br /> <br />Thirdly, <b>reset ThinkPad administrator password</b> by accounts with administrative rights<br />Only the accounts with administrative privileges can help us reset lost password, the built-in administrator account included. Now, take <b>ThinkPad XP password recovery in Safe Mode</b> as example:<br /> 1. Press F8 once IBM ThinkPad laptop starts. Select "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" and Enter.<br /> 2. At the login screen with computer user accounts, choose an available account to login. Please note that the built-in Administrator account password is blank if never set password for it before.<br /> 3. In Safe Mode, Dos command displays. Input "net user" and press Enter to list all the user names in Windows XP computer. Then input "net user Susan 123" (Susan is the locked account name and 123 is the new password set on this account) and press Enter. Then we will see "The command completed successfully."<br /> 4. Input "shutdown -r" and press Enter to restart the system, then we can access "Susan" account in normal logon mode.<br /> <br />If the above methods still can not help us <a href="">reset ThinkPad password</a> or make us feel difficult to operate without some techniques, we can opt for some professional Windows Password Recovery tool or software. Such as <a href=""><u>Ainorsoft Windows Password Recovery</u></a>, it has Basic, Enhance and Corporation three different versions for computer basic on Windows 7, XP, Vista, Server 2003, Server 2008, R2, etc. Especially, <b>Windows Password Recovery Corporation</b> has large amounts of faithful users. With the Windows Password Recovery software, users can solve Windows password problem within minutes without special techniques!<br /> <i><br /></i><br /><i>Source</i>:<br />

I have an ibm t43 laptop that got fingreprint protected, how do i remove the protection


In Windows, in the settings section of the Fingerprint Control Center, uncheck Replace windows logon with fingerprint protected logon. In the Fingerprint section uncheck the Power-On Security section if the user has fingerprints enrolled there. You do not need to uninstall the software unless you wish to.

A Windows password reset bootable disk could do all the job for you, it can reset your lost or forgotten Windows password safely and quickly without login, you can create a Windows password reset bootable disk with the tool Windows Password Breaker, then use it to reset your password.

IBM Lenovo t60, the logon user interface DLL

To wipe and reload you don't actually have to log in. You just need to set first boot option to CD, insert the XP disk, and reboot the computer. All the steps from there on out are explained on the screen.

I hope this helps :)

The imb t40 has been very reliable but one day i turned it on and before it accessed the normal startup it was deleting a bunch of things and then when the log on the thing logs on and then right away logs...

IBM T40 - most likely running XP(Pro). When you say "it was deleting a bunch of things", I am going to assume that was some kind of security software you had installed (antivirus/antispyware/antimalware). Most likely your logon files were infected. You need to replace userinit.exe. If that doesn't do it, also replace winlogon.exe and csrss.exe. All of these are located in the system32 directory. You can do this a few different ways, one being a bootcd. If you are unsure of any of this, take it to someone who can help. This is easily repaired, so you do not need a reinstall!

Want to delete the administrator account

If you can reach the control panel on the account on their servers, use it to create a new account. Then log in to it, and delete the old one.
If you cannot open the control panel, or don't have the priviliges to create a new account, you're going to have to reinstall Windows on it.
However, do backup your data before you do that, because the whole partition you install Windows on will be formatted.

I hope this helps,

Replaced Hard Drive

you may need to boot from install cd, and then configure that drive with F2 prompt at log in screen. Of course, with IBM, there's always a chance of having some arcane approach, but you might get lucky.
