Resetting a BIOS password

Kaspersky Antivirus 6 review from CNET

Problem with Virtual Truck message at every restart
  • In some circumstances (believed to be associated with previous failed installations that did not run to normal completion), on every restart, Windows asks for:
  • Insert CDRom.
  • Please insert your CDRom with the Virtual Truck program. Looking for file: E:\INSTALLS\TERAETH\VTRUCK.EXE

  • The name of the file requested may differ in detail. Even after inserting the CD-ROM, the PC continues to make the same request on every restart. To repair this situation under Windows 98/ME:
  • * Click Start, click Run.
  • * Enter msconfig and click OK.
  • * Click tab Win.ini to bring it to the front.
  • * Click the [+] sign beside [windows] to expand this item.
  • * If you see an entry run= involving \vtagent\reboot.exe, then uncheck it.
  • * Click OK to exit the System Configuration Utility.
