Subject: Win98 ScreenSaver Password Backdoor

-Hello Everyone

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have a win98 machine which
we do
not know the screensaver password. I would like to password protect the

system via screensaver, but do not know how to get around the old
password
so we can change it.

Can anyone help? Any suggestions would be great!

-Thank you in Advance
