the user (admin) account is the full operating system unless you are talking about the bio password. That is the one where when you turn on the computer it immediately asks for the password.
you are getting confusing - do you or do you not want to type a password every time you turn on the computer?I want to change the system password. If that's the same as the BIOS password then that's what I want to change. I don't have to type it in every time I turn on the computer, though, which doesn't fit with what Spunk.funk is saying.
I'm lost IN THIS THREAD,I dont fully understand what you want to do,you either want to create a bios password,or change the one you already have, which is it,?I want to change the system password. If that's the same as the BIOS password then that's what I want to change. I don't have to type it in every time I turn on the computer, though, which doesn't fit with what Spunk.funk is saying.
true words spokenThere is no "System Password" Each User account, including the built in Administrator account, may or may not have a Password attached to it. You can change the password of any account if you are logged in an account as user with Admin rights. by going to Start/Run and type control userpasswords2. Highlighting the account and choosing Change Password. If you want extra added security, you can add a Bios Password. This is set by booting into Setup (Bios) This is not part of your Windows or even your Hard Drive, but the Bios of your computer. If you set up this Bios password, you would have to type it in each time you started your computer before Windows Loads. If you forget or loose this Bios password, your computer will be disabled until the correct password is typed. I hope that clears it up for you.
