My Sony Vaio suddenly seems to be locked behind a password which was not there before and itis not any of my own passwords. Laptop also refuses to open with Safe Mode. How do I get around this mystery paasword and get the machine open?

At what point are you being asked for the password - on boot or at the Windows log on screen?

What O/S are you using?

Passwords can not just appear - someone has to be responsible. Anyone playing a practicle joke on you perhaps?

if the password is being asked for at the logon screen, try just hitting enter and leaving it blank.

Password is demended on boot.
No ideas od any practical jokers at all!!
