Somebody is too smart

By wayne ·
Hi
I have a situation where somebody with a little bit of knowledge, has decided to play around with a clients PC, and put a password in the content area of her pc. We have no idea of who did it, and with around 40 staff in the office, we aren't likely to find out. Does anybody have a way of removing this password or at least disabling it?
You are my last resort prior to reloading the system.
Thanks
Wayne

I assume you are referring to IE's 'Content Advisor'.

You may not have had anyone messing with passwords....content advisor has a habit of screwing up and stating that something is password protected...especially if a files gets corrupted during an upgrade.

Go to the Microsoft Knowledge Base for fixes for this problem!

Run some policies on the system, if you are only using win98, you can still do it through the Win98 Resource kit....and set somepolicies on the system so that halfwits can't do this stuff and waste your time.
