If the owner of the machine does not want someone (anyone) to access their computer, then they reserve that right.
I hope I do not get in trouble with the mod's for helping you. but...
According to Bleeping Computer's discussion rules: which can be found herehttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/boardrules.phpNo subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.
The parents have put the password on the computer for a reason, and it is not a good idea to help someone defeat or attempt to defeat security measures they have in place. If the child wants to think his/her parents are not cool, then so be it. They know their child, you do not. When the parents find out that the child got around their security measures, then the child will have to pay the piper. Since the parents are the ones paying the bill for the internet, they set the rules.
Despite your statement about the parents rights, you forge ahead with your "advice".
I'm reporting this thread to the moderators, who will-I hope-remove not only your link and advice (which I did not include when quoting you), but also that of Renegade.
