Question from Barry: I bought an Acer Aspire S7-391 laptop with Windows 8 at an estate auction.
I took a chance on it because it looks brand new and I was able to buy it for only $20. I’m hoping that’s a good deal (LOL).
Once I got the laptop home and booted it up I found out that it has 3 user accounts on it.
The machine boots up fine into an administrator account that doesn’t have a password on it. The other two accounts I can’t get into because they do have passwords (and I don’t know them).
