Help with a unusable computer
Hey guys my girlfriend bought a computer about a year ago and it's a pretty decent machine, until her older brother decided it was "his" responsibility.
So he password protected it and nothing can be installed or updated and now the computer is very slow and freezes when you open pictures. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do? I thought about just resetting the password but I don't want her brother to get all mad at her and take it away.
Would it be wise to dual boot another OS on it? She just wants music, photos and the internet so any Linux distro should work.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated
btw she might get a laptop but we don't know when so this will be temporary :]
Unbuntu looks really attractive and easy for her to get the hang of, is dual booting an option? Can I use GParted and partition the hard drive?
