You are clueless

by jdclyde In reply to Regardless..

If you are buying stolen property, YOU are committing a crime that YOU can go to jail over, and it IS your fault.

When you buy a system off of ebay, if it doesn't say it includes an OS, you are expected to HAVE to format and load your own legal copy on.

If it DOES say that it includes an OS and you can't get into the system, you stop payment AND trash the seller until you have access to what you paid for.

You are also suppose to read the ratings on the seller BEFORE purchasing anything from them.

Even you should be able to understand such a simple process?

We don't and we won't. Do so at your own perill.

If you want to be the a--hole among us here, then go ahead and provide info on hacking and cracking but be warned, expect to get flamed by every other member of TR that considers himself/herself an ethical professional.

Legitimate reason for needing the info

by blacksmith In reply to a few things

I support about 150 users in my agency, and at least once a year, one of them gets into the CMOS by accident and sets a system password. It's a lot easier to reset the password via a hack/crack or whatever than it is to re-install the operating system.
BTW, I haven't tried doing it that way, but does reinstalling the OS actually reset the CMOS? I don't believe it would.

The need may be as reasonable as breathing

But posting a password crack would be as irresponsible as ****. Period.

It is not condoned here and anyone posting that kind of information will b e marked as spam for deletion. There aren't a lot of hard and fast rules here but that would be one of them.

It isn't reflective on the querent. It has nothing to do with the person who is asking the question or why they are asking.

Unless you want to keep all of the previous owners files, you could reload it if you have a windows xp or the green Dell reload disk.

Somebody else was down, alright.

The post was down. Good job, PTB.

BTW, I lost my Windows product key. Anybody got one I can use after I figure out how to crack the admin PW on my server and then reset the PW on my yahoo account after I find someone to pee for my drug test?

Please note what was done with that irresponsible reply

by Tig2 In reply to :D

And if you provide an answer, someone will mark you as spam. Period. And it will be deleted.

There aren't a lot of rules here and we are pretty self regulated. But answers to that kind of question are not available here. And when they are provided by any peer, they are marked for deletion and the peer providing the answer is remembered. Just not a good place to be.
