    I recently got a used computer that i don't have the administrator password for. I found a linux based program that resets that admin. password and it seems to be working ok but with one problem; it gives default answers to the prompts on the screen which i assume are right except for one. It says to change the password to "*" which shoud leave it blank, but when you hit enter and it asks if you'd like to confirm it the default is already set to no. Theres no way to change the defaults and i have no clue what to do next. If someone can tell me how to modify the program so i could answer the questions manually that would be a big help. -John

    when it comes to where it defaults to no, type Y, then push enter.
