... when does the prompt appear?

... are you seeing this prompt when you open internet explorer?

... if so change the "homepage"

... might be an idea to post in win95/98 forum

It goes straight for the password when it turns on. I believe it is a 95, but I only have a 98 disk. I thought I had posted in 95-98...I'm new at this????

onmouseover="window.status=''; return true" href='http://www1.flexysearch.com/trf_split.php?query=knows

... the above is what you see??

... it looks like a web page link to me(?)

... is the above in black and white ie a command prompt?

*************************************************
... do you see the Windows 95 logo first?

... try just [pressing enter] <key> if no good

... restart again and press the <Esc> key

... It might be the bios password its asking for!

... try tapping the <Del> key @ bootup... thats the Delete <key> to see if you can enter the bios

... just [press enter] @ this stage
**********************************************
... OR you might already be in Windows and a file has kicked in I suspect from within the file "autoexec.bat"

It is asking for a password and no one knows what it could be? Do I wipe the Hard drive? How so if so? I don't know?

First, is it asking for a BIOS (power-on) password or a Windows (log-on) password? If it's a BIOS password, removing the battery for a few minutes may (or may not) remove the password as well. If it's looking for a Windows password, then you should be able to wipe the hard drive (with a Windows 95/98 boot disk)...

You can skip step #1 in above if you have a bootdisk.
