Asking for assistance with bypassing password security is prohibited in these forums. There is NO way you can prove to anyone here that you are the legal owner of that laptop and therefore will not receive any further aid.
Yes, I am aware of that, it just really seems screwy for a company who originally released the product to refuse assistance on such an old, obsolete computer, yet you can purchase the software online legally to do so.
Guess it's a matter of whch thief has the most money. Thank God such a system exists.
