In short Yes you need to play as a person, No you don't have user names and passwords. (MORE)
Computer password is important to everybody including you because it won't be easy for hackers to hack your computer or any software you own, which is why passwords are important. They'd have to guess each time just to get it right (which would take like an eternity). It would only take an eternity …if you make your password very complex, not too complex so you wouldn't remember. (MORE)

No. If this is a dell, they can get you in. There are ways to get your password. You can also reinstall the OS because you have the disk, or do a system restore before you set the password. I won't explain the ways to extract the password, as I have heard this a thousand times from peopl…e who have stolen computers. (MORE)

The passwords are a different matter because they are hashed and cannot be imported into any other system to be useable. After you export the user names from the passwd file, use the 'dsadd' com…mand of server 2003 to import them. You can give them a random password or a default password with the dsadd command. If you are speaking about exporting from a true database, then that would be dependent on what database you are asking about. (MORE)
You may reset your password for Windows 7 using several methods. If your computer has joined a domain, you can reset the password from the domain controller (requires a Network Administrator to do this for you). If you have created a password reset disk, you may use that to log in and keep your encr…ypted files.. Otherwise, if you cannot remember your normal password, and you have a default Windows 7 installation, the Administrator account may be unlocked. Try pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del at the Welcome Screen, and use the name Administrator with no password. If it allows you in, you can use Control Panel to reset your password ( note: this may cause you to lose files you've encrypted, permanently).. Finally, if you are not a member of a domain, do not have a reset disk, and you do not have access to the administrator account, you will need to use an unofficial tool, such as System Rescue CD, to recover your account. Some are free, and some cost money, and of course each will have various drawbacks and features. If you are inexperienced with computers in general, it may be best to let a friend, family member, or associate that is knowledgeable with these types of tools perform the fix for you.. Downloading unknown tools from the Internet is a great way to get viruses or have a total loss of all files on the hard drive. Never attempt to repair an operating system using any tool you are not familiar with or comfortable with using, always ask for help before you make an easily fixable situation into an impossible situation..

I had a penguin and I forgot what the password was so I made another one and it's a member now. My user name is Bluesky7112 and all my friends remember it and so do i because I use the password and user name for everything I go on like panfu and stuff like that. (MORE)

On XP / Vista, this is likely an issue with the winlogon key in the registry being either missing or corrupt. This is the result of a virus, or more commonly, virus software automatically removing a virus. If you can boot to a recovery console or off your original install disk, edit the regist…ry to add/repair these keys: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "Shell"="Explorer.exe" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "Userinit"="C:\\Windows\\system32\\userinit.exe," This will solve your immediate issue and allow you to log on, but you still want to do a full virus scan.

well there are many different ways a person can log into their computer depending on operating system. in a windows environment you would have to enter the user name and password or just password if it is password protected. on mac osx just the password and in a Linux environment it would be similar… to windows. im guessing you cannot log into your machine because it is password protected and you either forgot your password or someone made one for you without telling. in either of those cases...... i would really need more information than your basic question (MORE)
Logging in lets the computer know it's you, and helps the user in two major ways. First it sets up all your settings, your screen saver, desktop background, and any other likes and dislikes that you want to personalize the way you like it so that you have a better experience. The other major thing l…ogging in does is organize your files and data into your own personal location on the hard drive. For instance your pictures are in your Pictures folder while another users pictures are in their pictures folder. Same with movies, music, and any other files and data. (MORE)

Well; that depends upon the type and nature of computer user e.g. A Developer / Programmer / Designer or an Architect can not even think without computers as they help them build new projects for even earning a living. A researcher can communicate to a whole wide world to seek the facts and discuss …it with his fellows. A PhD Doctor might need someone even more geniuses to make a talk about his project.

I don't understand your question. The first answer that comes tomind is to enter the correct password, but surly that's not whatyou meant.

If… these weren't what you meant try re-asking your question. (MORE)
