Windows 7: Trying to bypass defunct log in domain on laptop

Trying to bypass defunct log in domain on laptop

Hi. I'm using an old laptop but I can't log in.
After I enter the McAffee security password, the laptop is defaulting to an old domain which is no longer in use. My username for the domain is displayed and it's looking for a password which I can't remember.
Is is possible to bypass this domain and simply log in to Windows? I only want to use the laptop to do some printing...
Thanks for your help.

Have to got Proxy Settings enabled?

Click Start => Control Panel => Internet Options => Connections tab => LAN settings => uncheck Use a proxy server for LAN.

I hope this helps!

Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately we can't give advise on hacking as we have no way of knowing you own the PC

is Windows Explorer a defunct name?
First there was Internet Explorer. Then there was Windows Explorer which is 5 syllables and too long for something that just does a "dir". Worse, it shares "Explorer" with the internet browser. Since I don't see the name mentioned anymore, does the folder viewer no longer have a name and if...
