I have no idea where to put these questions so i settled for here.
1) My mom upgraded here computer at work and so i took her old computer off here hands (only a year or 2 old). She seemed to think it had a virius or something on it. My first question is, we couldn't find the power cord that went with it, So i just pluged an old one i had into it and it seemed to work fine. Is that ok? The last thing i need is an electical fire at my house. It seems to be pretty standered. It has the 3 prongs that are in the shape of a triangle. So is this something that is a problem.
2) I turn it on and it asks me for here password and although, i do know what it is, it well not log me on bc it wants me to connect to her offices' network but cant. So i cant log on. Is there an easy way around this? Or do i need to erase the hard drive and start over (which i may end up doing anyways esp. if it has some kind of virius.) Anythoughts?
This is not a brand name computer. The only specs i know is it is currently running windows 2000.
