Maybe you have a newer Toshiba that needs to use the parallel port method...
If you make a simple device that you connect to your parallel port, a lot of Toshiba computers remove the password when you boot it up. The device could be made out of anyparallel wire with a 25 pin connector. You should jumper(short) these pins:

1-5-10,
2-11,
3-17,
4-12,
6-16,
7-13,
8-14,
9-15

For those who care what this connects:

1-5-10, 1=Strob, 5 =data bit 3, 10 = ack
2-11, 2=databit 0, 11=Busy
3-17, 3=data bit 1, 17=SLCT IN
4-12, 4=data bit 2, 12=Paper End
6-16, 6=data bit 4, 16=reset
7-13, 7=data bit 5, 13=SLCT (out)
8-14, 8=data bit 6, 14=Auto feed
9-15 9=data bit 7, n/c sometimes +5v

You may not be doing the reset procedure with the "Keydisk" properly. Don't try to enter a new password just follow this procedure:
1. Press ENTER when asked for Password (don't type anything).
2. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and then Enter.
3. You should now enter the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password(or leave blank).

ek/ekc actually refers to the same thing or organization shal I say....Why it asks is the question! ek/ekc stands for Eastman Kodak/Eastman Kodak Corp.

Like I said...Why it asks is the real question? And I don't have that answer for you unless you have an app. on the machine that requires it or the backdoor passwords program is written or sold by them for Toshiba, or the program writer was a real big fan of Eastman Kodak!
