windows 95 screensaver password?

By Jtucker9 ·
I have a client that uses windows 95 he forgot his screensaver password. Is there a way to put in a new password without knowing the old one? I have beat my head on the walls with this.

You need to restart the PC and go to desktop properties-> screen saver and change the password. You don't have to know the previous one to do that.

I tried this and in windows 98 it worked but in windows 95 it keeps asking for the old password before I can change to the new password

Go into the system.ini file. Look for the screensaver password value. delete those entries. Start up the PC again and enter a new password.

I have a small program that will show the screen saver password in my "Admin Toolkit", if you need it drop me an e-mail and will send it to you.
