I Just recently found a computer that someone had thrown out that is fully operational but requires a password to access it. This computer would be a great help to me, but I have no way to get into it and use it. Does anyone know of a way that I could bypass this or erase everything so the computer can be started from scratch that I can use it.

If anyone can give me any assistance I'd definately give them a donation thru Paypal :thumbsup:

Sorry,
We can't help you with that.
Many claim to have "found a PC", etc....
We'd like to believe your claim.
Find a local tech to help you out.

We don't help with such. It's against all we stand for here on the BC.

Rats,
I apologize to you!
I didn't entirely read your post.
You can purchase a new OS, and reformat your system with it and legally run it too.

Oh that's ok,

So is it costly and/or complicated for a computer novice like myself to try and perform?
Thank you.

There are freeware versions (distributions) of Linux available which would give you an operating system for your computer.

We cannot help you crack a password or defeat any other computer security.
