I bought a computer at a yard sale and was told that I would have to reinstall Windows XP on it. When I turned the computer on, XP is still on it but it requires a password to enter. It says to hit control, alt, delete but when I do, the same window comes up again. I hit F8 as Windows was opening so I could go into safe mode. When I go into safe mode I get the same thing. Hit control, alt, delete. I don't know who I got the computer from so I have no way of getting a password. Can anyone help? I don't know very much about puters at all. Thanks in advance.

Greetings,

We are terribly sorry but Kioskea cannot help you to recover your lost password, because you can't prove to anybody on this forum that you are the legitimate owner.

The reasons are explained in this link:
