the computer im using has windows ME just so you know. anyway i put on a "system password" on this computer a long while ago so my son couldnt get on it and do stupid things to it. but now i forget how to get rid of it...what happens is when you start the computer up the first thing u see is a black screen saying "enter system password"...then you see all the other things you would normally see when u boot up so this password is the first thing that comes up. Obviosly i know the password but i want to get rid of it so i dont have to type it everytime. and ah well thats it for now i cant explain it anymore so anyhelp on disabling this would be very apprciated. :thumbsup:

I'm asuming that you are talking about a bios password.... You will need to boot into your bios to disable it. Depending on your system, it is usually accessed by tapping the delete key during boot up.

Split this one off and start your own topic. I am out of town for conferences the next few days, so my time is really limited for awhile :thumbsup:
