Hi,

It would be better if you can just reinstall the Operating System of the machine, if happens that you don't have any important Data on the machine. Here are the steps how you can reinstall the Operating System on you machine.

1. Shutdown the machine make sure the machine is running in AC.
2. Look for the button with the Curve Arrow or Inverted Letter U most likely its near Power Button. Press it once.
3. Wait til you see the message Windows is Loading Files.
4. It will load to the One Key Recovery.
5. Click One Key Recovery.
6 Choose Restore from Initial Backup then Click Next. It will just ask you if you really want to continue, you can just proceed with it.
7. Wait until it reached 100% after that restart the system then you can just setup your Operating System again.

Hope it helps.

My 11 year old son forgot google username and password


As a first step I would visit the Google Account Recovery page and start with "I don't know my username" to try and figure out the username. Once you have the username you can then reset your password.

Reset forgotten password


Go to the Computer store and ask a technician to clear the password for you. A CD called PowerSuite is a powerful UTILITY disk that can Boot Up from the CD/DVD drive when starting the computer. It has its operating system on the CD and starts by itself. A Utility programs on that disk will allow you to search the hard drive for all passwords and give you the option to Clear the Password. Once you cancel out the existing password, the computer will start up normally for there on in. Just don't use a Password. Remember to remove the CD before restarting the computer or else you will go back to the Power Suite program again.

2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password

Wireless router connection unsecured


Open a browser and type in the address bar 192.168.1.1
It'll prompt you for a username and password, if you used the Linksys Installation CD, remember the username and password that you provided. Else, leave the username blank and key in admin for the password.

Once inside the router, click the Wireless Tab then the Wireless Security sub-tab.
Enable and choose WPA Personal and provide a password for your wireless network at the WPA Shared Key section.
Click Save settings at the bottom.

Your computers will need to reconnect to your network and asked for the security password.
