    THANK YOU BORG 386; I clicked on the hyperlinks that you provided and found the SysKey password had (indeed) been set up for "123". I tried "1234", first, so "123" was my second try, and I was in! Thank you. Mountain Geek Computers

    If the news media would give the scammers the news time that the presidential race is getting they would be out of business.
