    Windows ME security

    Sup yaa,

    I need to know the different ways to bypass and secure the Login in a Windows Me environment. This is for a client of mine. Does anyone know where I may get the information?

    God Bless

    I'm not sure on that one, but my first suggestion to the client would be to get rid of Me as soon as possible. Oh, that's a horrid, horrid OS, problems abound.

    Ohh I know that. But you know some people won't listen. I support a full NT shop instead.

    I know there ways different ways to get in a win9xme without a password. Especially like clicking cancel and booting into dos to rename some files.

    I'm just looking for the Top 5 ways. Without the use of other programs.

    One easy way to get past the login screen: (works in 98, dont remember about ME)
    Hit Escape when you get to the login screen. It will allow you to get into the computer.

    Unfortunately ME uses FAT32 and not NTFS so there is not much you can do security wise without going to third party software.

    You could set the power up password in the BIOS as a last resort.

    You can get it to force a network login, but in the default setup it will allow you to bypass the password screen with escape.

    We play CounterStrike 1.6 in our clan. (No other games at the moment)
