Re: [BCAB] Password at Sartup Alan and Sheila Rayner 19 Aug 2011 18:34 BST

Tom and Roger,

I am also interested in this topic for a friend who gets the password prompt
but cannot remember the password.  How do you get into the user accounts, or
control panel etc if you cannot get past the prompt.  Is there some way of
accessing the command line prompt or task manager with control alt delete
combination?

cheers

Alan Michael Rayner
