I have an old work laptop. The start up screen to Windows asks for a password. When I enter the password I get a message stating that the computer cannot connect to the server. However, when I change to the laptop itself and enter the password Windows starts up. My concern is how do I remove the business side of the computer? I would like to remove those files and applications to make it my personal computer. Any thoughts?

Well...I would just clean install on any system that wasn't new.

Not sure what a "server connection" is when it comes to logging into a system.

If the system contains an Internet connection that you don't want...seems to me that deleting the established connection should do the trick.

What's the first boot device in the BIOS? If the system is set up to boot from the hard drive...I don't really understand what you describe.

I would take a look at the Users in Control Panel and delete any that don't relate to me personally/Admin.
