I was recently scammed by someone pretending to be Microsoft. They put a password on my computer so I can not use it without contacting them for the passwor. Can someone help me reset this password so my computer will funtion again. I would love to call these guys back and tell them how easy it was to get past their criminal password. Thank you for your time.

Some articles refer to this situation, and recommend removing the cmos battery for 20-30 min.
