PLEASE HELP!!! I forgot the operating systems password--I'm trying to reinstall windows
Posted on 2003-11-10
I'm trying to reinstall windows 98 on my daughters pc because when I start up her pc I first get this message, "B: Drive Error Press F1 to Resume." So I press "F1" and Windows starts to open but then I get the following message, "Cannot find WIN.COM." So I used my Windows 98 startup disk and CD to reinstall windows 98 but during installation a small black window popped up and asked "BootSector Write !! VIRUS: Continue (Y/N)?." I tried typing "Y" or "N," I hit "Enter" and "Esc" and I clicked on the "Y" but nothing happens. It's like the window is frozen but my mouse still works. So I tried to get into my bios so to disable any virus protection but in order to get to setup I need a password. I forgot the operating system's password. I've tried every password I've ever used but to no avail...help.
