Howdy, My friend has a Toshiba labtop, and each time he turns it on, he is asked immediately for password, after enter his password, he is then led to normal XP password request screen. I asked him and was informed that the first password request is customizable and was already installed when he bought the labtop. It seems to be a good security measure since Windows does not attempt to start until password is given. And I "want" it. Anyone have any idea how to get this program? Is it available to Toshiba only? ... It is ten o'clock on a beautiful Tuesday morning here in San Fernando Valley as I await Chinese New Year. Happy New Year to those who celebrate it.
