Remove a Bios Password

This is the easiest way to do it

1-The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget a lot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password.

2-You can use a bios password cracker, but chances are that this can take forever to crack. Link

3-The last step requires you boot into DOS and use DEBUG to corrupt the bios. On the reboot, the Bios will realize their is an error and resets everything to factory defaults, eliminating the password. Here are some helpful tips to make a usb bootable disk.

Ways to Shutdown or Reboot

Here are some great ways to shutdown or reboot. You decide which way is the best for you.

a) Shutting Down Accidentally
This method is to be used if you accidentally are shutting down and want to stop the procedure all together. It's going to require you to act quickly. So do so very fast. All you have to do is click on the Clock on the lower right hand side of your computer and change the date to a previous date and say ok. Windows will think it's in the past and postpone the shutdown.
b) Shutdown -a
For this trick you need to create a shortcut, because it will be to fast to execute. The usual way would be to open a command prompt and type this command but that will not be quick enough.  So if you can't do the first item on clicking the clock this is your alternative.
c) Shutdown Event Tracker
This feature is from Windows Server but it can be found in the group policy and all that has to be done is activated. It will be an extra click but it's worth it.
d) ShutDown Guard
This is the last resort to guard against a shutdown. This utility can easily be armed and disarmed with a click from the taskbar.
