Is there a way to bypass the password required screen on the login screen? We got this computer from someone else years ago and do not know what this password is, and this is the first time it's required that we give the password to log on. Is there anything I can do to get on without knowing it?

Tried tapping F8....took me to a screen asking to choose a boot device, any of which choices took me to the attempt at opening windows, which then took me to the login screen. Looking like a virus, I'm guessing......

While it is most likely that you are asking to recover a system password for legitimate reasons, this is a public forum and others who do not have legitimate reasons can find this thread and use it to help them. Thus, we are sorry but we cannot help with any topics relating to bypassing the system password. This thread is closed, if you have any questions, please contact me or another staff member.
