Re: wont keep passwords
Go into your firewall and allow TCPI connections.
And most anything related to your internet connection allow.
If you are running Vista the fire wall has most everything shut down as default settings so you need to change it to allow your IP address access.
Also in Vista you have to allow or not allow sharing in the control panel under networking.

We lost the password to a computer that we purchased at Best Buy. We took it to the Geek Squad at the store and they were able to unlock the computer and reset the password. I think it costs $30. Good luck.
You need password reset software to correct the problem , you will never get past that point if you don't have a password. I know from experience that Geek Squad has this software and can fix your problem
This is going around and I'm trying get the word out to remove your user password before any update because of this fiasco. If the Geek squad is near you they have a password removal tool called Samurai that will remove all passwords on your laptop. I'm not sure I would trust a third party program off the web with information like that, but the squad may have minmal charge for a procedure like that, it only takes a few minutes to run the disc and click a few prompts and it's done.
Recently while at Geek Squad at Besy Buy I asked them the same question in regards to replaceing my Satellite A55-S106 computer. He (Geek Squad) explain to me they do'nt sell the lap top batteries but you can purchase them online and you can go to Toshiba direct and I know for sure they have them availble there. I cant spell today sorry,
