    Its not another laptop thats been left on a train is it? News is on now. Watching for update................

    is it the Windows Welcome Screen Password.

    During Start/Boot up, press F8 to get the option and log in using Safe Mode.

    Go into Control Panel, Users, and create a new user (say ADMIN).

    You can then delete the intial user and/or change their password
