Hi kdunder,

This sounds like the boot password your talking about. The lock is showing up after 3 incorrect tries.

You can go into the BIOS and reset the Boot password - of course you'll need administrator rights.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Locked administrator


For Windows Password:
1. Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box.
2. Type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank.
3. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you should be able to reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Log in screen.

There was a problem signing you in to yahoo! messenger your account has been locked, please click "forgot password..." to start the unlocking process, (81003003)


Changing Internet password regularly is one of the Internet security measures that protect us against illegal users. This is very true specially when you are using Yahoo Messenger in the any Internet cafe that is not private and crowded. There are people watching you and even reading your messages from your both sides and from the back. They even watch the keyboards as you time your passwords. When one of your family members knows your password, they might be tempted to open your account and you loses some important offline messages. When you feel that your password is no longer safe, then it is time to change it. Below are some procedures with corresponding screen shots that will guide you to the process.


Instructions
    • 1 Sign in to Yahoo Messenger.
    • 2 change-yahoo-messenger-password-1.2-800x800.jpg Go to Messenger -> Account Info.
    • 3 change-yahoo-messenger-password-1.3-800x800.jpg Verify your password.
    • 4 change-yahoo-messenger-password-1.4-800x800.jpg Look for Sign-In and Security under Account Information and Choose Change your Password option.
    • 5 change-yahoo-messenger-password-1.5-800x800.jpg Enter your Current Password, Choose a new Password and Confirm your new Password. Refer to the picture on the left if necessary.
