  • Is it safe to use a computer without knowing the files it contains?

    Original title: keep this computer?

    It gave me a computer by a person since I was a new single parent and can't afford it and have not had a more than a year. The problem is I do not know the previous owner and there are 100 of its files on it and she's still on as an administrator, so I can't delete anything. Can I use this pc or not, not knowing what is in all the files? Also I buy two PCs last year for like $40 off Criags list, I got ripped off because it wasn't working, the an and the other that I screwed up because I became 'clear' the crazy. The reason is my soon to be ex husband would hack into each of my email boxes over the years where we were married and my emails would get even sent a text message on his phone, don't ask me how, but I saw it. So I went a little crazy, erasing things afraid someone will see all my stuff again, I don't know what's on a pc which is supposed to be there and what follows you and ect. and should not be there or is spyware or something so it's the word just for someone hacking and tracking you? Where do you take classes pc free/low cost to? I don't want to spoil this pc too (in fear) if I can find a way to access the previous owners files!

    If the PC is a PC brand manufacturer may a hidden restore partition, if she, or you have been provided with the recovery discs, you can restore the PC provided that the factory, all its contents will be destroyed in the process, and it will be like when it was first purchased.

  • How a new computer can know the wifi passwords?

    Recently, I installed a new Macbook Air for my wife. All installed / installation from the ground upward.

    Now, here's the thing; next time I started it automatically connect to my wifi network secure at home. How is that possible? This new computer that has never been in my house, how can the password for my Wifi? Even worse, have a peek into the history of Wifi I can see hundreds of Wifi networks that I have connected to in the past - on my other devices! This computer has never had anywhere.

    Thus, it seems that something is connect devices here and share this information. What I need to know is; How is that possible?

    It is not possible. It must fail information. As you entered the password when you set up first of the machine. Or you have migrated info on starting a backup.

  • How can I connect to a computer without knowing the password to default?

    Original title: what is the default password / restored for samsung i5, intel, windows 7?

    I bought a returned a Samsung i5, intel, windows 7, 500 GB, 4 cores.  The guy who initially was sold in October 2012 has decided he wanted more bells/whistles and a system w / Windows 8 (which I despise him!).  He should not have used it very long because it was still covered in a film of plastic on the cover of the keyboard and all the cables.

    Problem is... when the laptop has been restored to factory default, they don't tell me what is the default password.  I can't lock my computer without the default password...

    When a machine is restored to the State of the plant and then you are prompted to select your own account name and password. If you are challenged for a password, then the machine is not in "Factory condition" and you must perform a new factory restore.

    Hello

    You should not have a password to reinstall Vista.

    Microsoft prohibits any help given in these Forums for you help bypass or "crack" passwords lost or forgotten.

    Here's information from Microsoft, explaining that the policy:

    http://answers.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows/Forum/Windows_7-security/keeping-passwords-secure-Microsoft-policy-on/39f56ef0-5d68-41AD-9daa-6e6019c25d37

    There are several methods to reinstall Vista.

    There is no Windows Vista downloads available from Microsoft.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    To reinstall Vista using their recovery disk/s, you start from the 1st recovery disk they provide and follow the manufacturer's instructions to reinstall:

    You need to change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order:

    How to change the Boot order in BIOS:

    http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/SS/bootorderchange.htm

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall Vista on how you purchased your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    "How to do a clean install and configure with a full Version of Vista '

    http://www.Vistax64.com/tutorials/117366-clean-install-full-version-Vista.html

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

    And phone Activation may be necessary when you use the above installation method.

  • I bought a used computer and do not know the password to unlock

    I bought a used computer. I don't know the password. The password can be removed and mine used to unlock? The former owner is not available.

    Best to make a/Clean Custom installation of XP. Never can tell what the unwanted (like viruses) may exist.

    (1) Note the make and model of your computer.

    (2) check that the 25-character product key is always fixed to the case or at the bottom of your laptop.

    3) go to the support of the manufacture web site and know what "F" key, you will need to press on when the computer starts, run a reinstallation of XP (or use the recovery media if you have a).

    (4) reinstall XP and create a new user account. Note: If you use the support CD of 'Recover' you will need to re-enter the product key to activate Windows.

  • Don't know the password to sign on computer

    I recently bought a HP Pavilion dm4-1265dx from best buy. I've never owned a notebook before if I had set up for me. I went and picked up the next day and when I got home I didn't need a password to connect. Instead the simplepass 2011 pop up, is what I use to open a session. But I would really like to be able to login with a password too except that I don't know what it is. It was already fixed when I got home. I tried without password, the owner, password and all the rest I could think. I tried to reset the password, but I need the password for the 'old '. So is there another way to get the password? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If people in Best Buy put in place, they probably know the password.

    They can even use the same every time.

    Best Buy may have used your name as password.  Try the first name or last name...

    You can call or go back and ask them.  It's the easy way, if it is available.

  • Recover photos from iphone, knowing the password

    Hello

    I'll try to keep it short.

    1. my Iphone 4S has got a broken screen

    2. I have not used for 1 month (aprox)

    3. after replacing the screen, the date has been reset to January 1, 1970

    4. the phone is off "try again in 24,000,000 minutes.

    Facts in brief.

    -I do not know the password

    -J' tried to disconnect the battery - same date

    -It is not sync with iTunes (received a new computer)

    -I don't have the old computer to Apple/Lockdown ID

    -J' tried an update and it worked (I now have IOS 9.3), but it is still blocked

    -J' tried insert/remove different SIMs and reset (hard/soft)

    Is there a way to fix the clock or recover my photos and records? I have some that I really care and I am willing to spend a reasonable amount to get them.

    Thank you very much.

    Alex

    If you have changed the date of May 1970 or earlier and cannot restart your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch - Apple Support
