    Password Question

    Locked

    by vollie6 ·

    I have a 32 mb RAM, Pentium computer, with NO brand name on it, and running Win98 2nd edition. When I boot up, the password to log on comes up but it’s from the previous owner. I hit CANCEL and can get onto the system, however, how do I get rid of that window popping up?

      Do Start-Find-Files and search for *.PWL, they should be in the Windows\system directory. Erase (or rename) the files, these are PassWordList files. Now when you reboot it will ask for a username and password. If you do not want it enter a password everytime, do not enter a password, just hit enter.

      you can follow the steps:
      control panel>user

      press right button on your name, then enter the old password and do not write anything in the box “new password” and “confirm password”.
