  • OT Computer Question

    The neighbor boy and my son were playing a computer game on an older Dell
    unit that is running windows 98. They got done playing for the moment and clicked the save button. After it saved, the computer beepd a few times and then shut off by itself. Now when computer is turned on and password is enterd it will not accept the password, asks , if you have forgotten password. Computer has no internet access.
    They have asked me to look at it, but I thought I would ask someone more knowledgable (you) what you thought about this.
    Any help appreciated.

      Fire up the machine and search drive C: for any files that end in .pwl

      Delete them. Problem fixed.

      To search for them enter in the search files and folders window *.pwl

      Make sure that you also tell it to search hidden and system files.
