locked screen saver

A Mac SE has a locked puzzle screen saver. The startup screen has a little locked symbol, top left. The puzzle seems to load pretty early on as an INIT.

How do I bypass this? I have tried the usual things like holding down the shift key.

Any suggestions?

Boot off of the System Tools disk and remove the INIT from
the Control Panels/Extensions folder.  I'm sure this INIT is
not smart enough to protect against disk mounting.  You may
need to look with ResEdit if you can not find it initially and
make sure the INIT is not hidden.
