Hi,
If you are referring to password :
- shut down the machine
- Power on but hit F8 continuously just before the Windows logo shows up
- scroll down to Choose "SAFE MODE" from one of the options listed
- After this has booted - Click on the Administrator's Account to login
- You can then change the password of the desired user account

Ok try this, it should work so long as the Administrators password is blank. which it is about 90% of the time
Start the computer, as soon as you see the manufacturer logo on the screen start hitting f8 series of smaller keys at the top op your keyboard.
Once that happens, you will see a menu that allows you to load in safe mode. load in safe mode and don't get scared but you will see a whole mess of items come across your screen.
then when windows finally starts up, click the start menu, then click control panel, under control panel you will see users accounts, click the account thats locked and there will be a small link that says remove password. and then that account wont have a password and you can log right in.
If the admin account does have a password, then your up a creek a lil, but there are still other solutions this one is just free..
Thanks for using FixYa.com please remember to leave 4 thumbs

My nephew has set a pin security code for his messages and cant remember what numbers he used any suggestions?


Hello, it is hard to know what particular number he used.
But you can ask him to give you a hit on the password.

If no hit, that means you will have to unlock the phone.

You can use this site to do that,

(mobileunlocked.com/mobile_unlocking.php).

Take care.

Unlock password


which pasword is locked out. Windows password or startup bios password.

for windows password you can just format the system to remove it. if you need the data NT offline registry and Password editor can be used to remove the password.

if this is a BIOS password, there are hidden jump points that need to be used. This woudl require a service tech or a person very carefully jumping the positions so you dont' fry the board.

Reset my RadioShack Wireless Security System Console 49-1000MC


Hey, Mine did the same thing, this is what I did. I entered "0000" for the pin and was able to reset the unit (0000 is the factory default) It may not work for you, but it's worth a try.

Oversized startup


Are you doing some maintenance of ur PC, like removing & clearing junk files,registry maintenance, de-fragmenting, etc? If not Install Advanced System Optimizer (ver. 2, 2.1, 2.2) which allows you to chose the start up menu such that only essential programs are used when starting , the other, when u need them! Alsp it has many tweaks whic are quite easy to figure and very helpful in optimizing the performance of the PC. This software is available for download by uTorrent & Limewire.......sodeep
