    Um, if it is a windows tweak like Ironcurtin suggested, I would say that it sounds like an Auto-Logon using "Add ControlUserPasswords2 To Control Panel" was set up. I only remember how to set it up, but not how to disable it.

    You may want to see this site for help:Click Here
    I'm too lazy to go through the entire site to find the direct link you need so you'll have to do the leg work from here.

    What if it wasnt a bios password. But a tweak you can do in regedit that will prompt a password prombt ( dont know if that is how you say it but whatever). Before the XP Login screen. Because I Have it on one of my computers downstairs. I cant find the link right now but try looking in tweakxp or tweak.us or one of those sites

    nothing wrong with breaking stuff

    If i didnt ever break anything then i wouldn't know how to fix it.

    First time i re-installed windows was because i broke it (totally messed up gfx and didnt know what a driver was)

    Gosh, dont we all love Win 95

    If there is another box that pops up after the bios loads but before the Windows logon, hmmm maybe another security level I am unaware of, but you can always choose to load one item at a time on boot and maybe get around the program that way.

    My guess is that he will seriously break something before he gets around something.

    I THINK he's trying to ask about a password popup before XP finishes loading ... I'm not aware of anything that does that, aside from bios system passwording ... which, you're still screwed.

    Goodluck,

    P.s. Most parents will allow you to use the computer if you ask nicely, unless its "daddys work computer"
    Unless they have been caught doing "funny things" in front of the pc and been caught surfing adult websites.

    I have tried some machines with bios passwords which this works on. But the bootdisk is mainly removing the password that stops you from entering and change the bios setup.

    I have made a bootdisk that cleares the cmos checksum so you'll have to set up the bios configuration from default configuration.. This cmos clearer should also clear the password. I cannot garantee it will work with your pc, but it worked with my pc's with several different bios'es. You'll need to have access to a computer to download the program and write it to a floppy. If you don't have much experience and don't know what the hell I'm talking about, you shouldn't try it.

    sounds like they enabled the bios password for bootup. Without that the comp is nothing more than an expensive doorstop. (there ARE ways around it, but ... :-p, you can figure that out yourself)


    but, as noid said, I'd just talk to them ... maybe they found traces of pron access? or some othe nefarious thing?

    I would suggest you sit down and talk with your parents about why they feel the need to put a password program on the computer. Maybe they have some concerns, and if you address them they may be willing to give you a little more freedom with the computer.
