Question about Computers & Internet
I have a "new to me" Toshiba A-15-S129 computer which has a password on the parental controls for internet searching. I can not get in touch with the person who sold it to me. How can I reset or bypass the need for a password? I thought about using system restore to go back to original settings but they must never have set up any restore points. It only goes back to last week when I bought it.
Can you re-install the OS? Do you have the OS CDs? If yes then re-install the operating system and all the protections will be erased. BUT, do take care of your data. Back it up. Specially the My Documents. And when you have done that, put the restore option on.
