I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

If I set the BIOS "system password", does that actually set the SATA password?  I am using Optiplex 7040's combined with Intel SSD's that leverage the SATA password to encrypt the drive.

To prevent regular installers, just don't make the user member of the administrators group, that denies him access to write to program files and most shared locations. All MSI files require administrators right to run, and "run as administrator" will ask for an admin password in this case (which the user should not know).

I doubt this can be done. For instance, any user is proprietary of all files under his profile in users folder (desktop, documents, all libraries, etc) and the proprietary of a file always has enough power to delete it. The recycle bin falls under this catego... Read more

Cannot boot...help......

Some how someone set a password on the Bios setting to a computer at the office. When I try to boot up now it will prompt me for the password. Apparently, the person who use the computer did not set the password and don't know who did.

How do I disable the Password. I've try flashing the Bios, but did not work. I need to disable the password first according to American megatrend,inc before I could attempt to flash the Bios. I've even try pulling out the CMOS battery, and reboot. still I get the same results. Do I have to leave the Cmos battery off and let it drain first and then try again to reset itself?

Any other solutions out there, please?

Thanks in advance,
CF
 

A:Need to disable BIOS password setting

You may need to leave the battery out for a little longer, also, there may be a jumper near the battery that when set correctly then returned to normal will also clear BIOS settings. We would need more information on the motherboard to be sure though.

Hi,

I apologize if this is a duplicate or anything. I need to find a way to allow a standard user to execute a program that requires administrative access. I have attempted to set the program in compatibility to run as administrator but this has no effect on the standard user. For this program to execute it will still prompt them for an admin login before it opens.

This entire issue is negated if I make the user a local administrator but this isn't a long term solution I want to be using. Is there a way to keep UAC turned on but to allow the program to run for specific users? I'm open to any suggestions that do not compromise local security and appreciate any help you can provide.

First of all you have to type the old password.
Then in two further windows, you have to confirm with the ENTER button.
Then safe the changes and exit the BIOS.

Create a password for your account and lock the desktop when you're not using it. If he doesn't have access to Windows he can't change anything.

Ok, this is my third attempt, after re-booting and re-booting. This is my wife's Sony, abt. 3 years old, P4, WinXP HE, 512k ram. For a long time now it has been "temperamental". Among the latest is I can no longer "switch user" as normally. Clicking Start/log off/switch user does absolutely nothing now, it merely reverts to the former screen. Start/log off/log off does work, however.
And the shortcut that I used to use, the Win logo key +L now goes to "UNLOCK COMPUTER", a pop-up message that tells me the pc is in use and locked and only I (presumably as an administrator) with the proper password can now unlock it..
Problem: what the heck is the password?
We don't recall ever setting one.
Control+Alt+Delete does nothing here. Once at this screen, my only recourse is to reboot. ("Cancel" is greyed out. I think though that a few days ago it wasn't and I could cancel. Is that my faulty memory or is this thing getting worse?)

A side note: I did recently download and utilize a reg cleaner freeware "Regseeker" which I used to delete only several items it said were not used or broken links. (It also allegedly created a back-up before deletion, but darned if I can see where or how I can get them back!)
I also disabled, thanks to another tech "advice", several services via Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services. However, that techie claims nothing I disabled in his list should affect this.

Thanks!

XP Pro, not networked, only one actual user in home/home office situation, although there are a couple of unused accounts on the machine.

I am logged as the user with administrator priviliges and want to remove the password from the account. Open Control Panel-User Accounts, select user, click remove password.

Windows asks for current password, I type the current password, Windows replies:

"Windows cannot remove the password. Password and/or account policies require the account to have a password."

I go to Admin Tools- Local Security Settings-Account Policy-Password Policy and set the minimum password length to 0. This is supposed to allow blank (no) password.

Still can not remove password.

A friend of mine has a Windows 8.1 Pro system, and she is tired of having to enter the password all the time, and just wants there to be no password on the system. But when I tried to help do that, set a blank password, it generates an error:
The password you entered doesn't meet password policy requirements.
Try one that's longer or more complex.
So I googled that, and came up with a fix involving going into secpol.msc and disabling complex password requirements under the Password policy. Problem is, it was already disabled!
In that section of the policy manager is shows minimum password length = 0 and password complexity requirements Disabled.

I also tried creating another admin account, and I was able to create a second account that was an administrator and that had no password, but when I logged into that Test user and tried to remove the password from the original user, it gave me the same error above.

We don't want to create a new user and move all her stuff over. And we don't want to install an autologin option. We simply want the existing user account to have no login password.
How can we get this account to not have a password? So far I am stumped, have I overlooked anything obvious?
Again, we DO have the current password, and it works, BUT we want to be able to log into the machine with NO password required - we want to remove the password from the User. How?

A:How to remove BIOS password ???

You'll have to reset everything in the BIOS configuration.
Open the computer's case
Find the battery on the motherboard
Remove the battery
Wait a minute or so (to make sure that the m-board's xompnents have powered down)
Reinstall battery
Close case
Start the computer
Go into the BIOS settings program
Set up the BIOS
Some motherboards have a jumper on the board - a jumper which, when shorted (or lengthened ), will erase the BIOS settings. For details, RT your motherboard's FM.

Yes, that means that anyone who can crack open the case can override YOUR BIOS password.
