Okay, I thought I knew a small bit about computers, but this one has me stumped.
I just bought a desktop computer off craigslist. Seems like a nice computer for the price, just a little dusty. Well I hooked it all up, and sat in front of it expecting to be surfing the web from something other than my age old laptop. Then I realize there are password protected profiles on this computer. The only one I can click into, doesn't have administrative privledges, so I can't clean the comp, I cant change parental locks which won't even allow me on cafemom, and I just generally can't do anything on there.
I've tried contacting the previous owner, and the one time they wrote me back, they simply said I don't need a password to use the computer.
I can't afford to take the computer to a shop to have it wiped out, and I don't know what to do. I hate to think I just wasted all this money that could have gone on my growing family.
Please help, what should I do?
