|'My Acer Aspire 5532 Laptop created a harddisk password that i never put on'|
Password issues are sure running rampant anymore...here's an explanation:
Passwords are important on laptops and are used as anti-theft protection. 99% of password issues are stolen property. The other 1% may be legit but pose an extremely hard process to rectify. Proof of owner, receipts, etc...with all that you may ( I use that term loosely) have a chance of removing the password. Most people write down their passwords and keep them in a safe place.
No use buying software to try changing passwords, you will be throwing cash down the drain, as they do not work. I have a feeling the spammers will jump on this post too, they usually do.
Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
