if you read this article it blocks the command i have an intel processor in my computer. do you know of any websites that have free software to crack it. I am trying to reset the admin password but i can't because of the openfirmware password. Do you know of any websites that have software for that or any software that i could get to do that.

It is against the policy of BleepingComputer to provide information on methods to reset or bypass the Administrator password. Though your question is most likely legitimate, there are others who may read this topic and use the information for less savory reasons. It is for these reasons we do not provide this type of information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a private message or an email. Thank you for your understanding.
