Recently I had to work in the DOS screen, It asked me for my password? On setting the PC up, I do not remember setting a password, I tried various words, none were acceptable. Could anybody please tell me how to find the password? I have tried SIW that only show "outlook express",which is wrong because in Vista it is windows mail, also it show my yahoo passwords. If anyone can help I would be very grateful. Regards Aine
I can open the DOS screen as normal, A colleague of mine was talking me through a problem concerning, using a Zyxel router and vista, there is a compatibility problem, with some routers and this OS.One of the things he had to do,required the password of my PC. He got around this by other means ,which I cannot remember how he did it. What I would like to do is recover this alleged password for future reference. Regards Aine
From what you say it may be that there is no password or else you would have had to use it. If this was related to a router problem it may have been a network password or even the password for your isp that was requested. Could you ask your colleague what the password was for? Could just be your vista admin logon password.
Thanks for your replies, we where in the DOS window, the window requested the PC password,I tried two or three possible ones, but the returning answer stated these were incorrect. This would indicate to me that there must be a password of some kind. It would appear that the password required, is the one used during the original PC setup. Regards Aine
