Post by CheenaGringo on Sat May 24, 2014 9:34 am

Never claimed to be a "techie" but this article just proved to be quite handy for finding various passwords that I had long since forgotten:

Which is why we are suppose to change our passwords but even folks who know better don't usually follow the advice. Lord smart people can be dumb sometimes especially with computers. My Mother is so paranoid that she has one computer offline that is only used for financial records and never on the Internet. She moves things with a SD card from the isolated machine to the Internet machine when sending tax forms for example. I use to think Paranoid.... I think smart like a fox nowadays. Pretty savvy for 84.

Thanks my Mom was an Operations Manager for United Airlines in the 1950s at National airport in Washington. She learned computers in the 80s and worked in the field
after raising us two children. I am very proud of my Mom.

The problem that I have is that it wants my "WINDOWS" password. I can't find an option to reset that one, of course it is the key to the whole deal. Any advice?
