When Windows boots up I get a password box and I cannot remember the password. I have tried every password I have ever used but none work. I ran the recovery discs hopping it would ask me to set a new password but it didn't. This happened to a friend who has HP Support and they had it fixed in 15 minutes. Now when the box comes up on that machine hitting the Enter button clears it. Anyone know how they did it?
