Re: need to find password

Hi, Cindy,

What operating system do you have?

Try logging into Safe Mode -

Restart the computer and tap the F8 button.

You can do a System Restore and restore your computer to a time prior to the download occurrence that caused the issue.

If using Windows ME, you can do a search for *pwl. Delete all *pwl files and reboot. A window appears for you to type in your user id and password. Type in the user id but do not type in a password or the window will reappear each time you restart.

Cindy,

Another option is to contact your ISP provider and see if they won't reset the password for you.
