Hi lily - If your running Vista here's how :

1. Log onto the computer using an account with administrator privileges.

2. Click the Start Button.

3. Click the picture associated with your account at the top of the menu.

4. Select Manage another account.

5. When the UAC box pops up, click Continue.

6. Select the user account that is to be deleted.

7. Click Delete the Account.

8. You will be asked if you wish to keep the files from the deleted account. To save the account's desktop and personal files to your desktop, click Keep Files. This will place the files into a directory with the account's name onto your desktop. Otherwise click the Delete Files button.

9. Click Delete Account.

If your Running Xp here's how:

Log on as you( by now I think everyone knows they should give themselves adminstrator priviledges)

Start>comtrol panel>user accounts>pick an account to change>delete account.

If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Jeff

Create a different user account. You won't have administrator permissions but you still may be able to perform the task you were trying to do when it prompted you for a password.

It ask for a user name and pasword


This could be a Windows password or a system password or both. If you don't have the Windows password and the former owner can't tell you what it is, you might have to erase the disk, reinstall Windows and thus solve the problem. A System password is a theft protection that can only be changed if you know the password. It is embedded in the laptop hardware. Ask the former owner what the password is, otherwise there is no solution but to ask Dell Service.

Unless you can get hold of a Linux password recovery program to reset or remove the password from the Windows Administrator's login, you will need to reinstall Windows again, the device drivers and your programs.
In this process you will lose all your data that is stored on your hard drive.
If you want to save your data before you install Windows, remove the hard drive, connect it to an USB hard drive adapter (most likely you will need power to the hard drive) and plug it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will see it as an external hard drive, copy your data you require so you can load it back onto your computer after you installed Windows.
OR
You can connect your hard drive into a working computer on the 2nd IDE controller, then you can see this drive and copy your data files.

I suggest you hard reset the Treo 600 to remove all former data and the username associated with the phone. Press the power button next tot he antenna and perform a soft reset at the same time. Dont let go of the power button until the Palm Logo appears. Then you will see a message asking if you want to delete all data. Removing portions of the old data is not an easy task.
