    Yah, my school has Key Cards too. xD Interesting that they removed Startup Repair.

    Come on, why do you stop to local admin? :)
    You're only a few inches away from the really interesting stuff.

    There's an app that the teachers use at my school to stop the LanSchool Student application and start the teacher console, and if a student were to get their hands on that, they'd have Teacher-level access to all computers in the same network (or "classroom") and can do some dirty stuff, like screen monitoring, keylogging, file transfers, remote execution of applications, remote shutdown/logout, straight-up remote control, blacking out all screens, rickrolling, etc.

    Man, thats still a thing? I remember in 2005 when we got all new Dell Omniplex 260s they all came with windows XP and Deep Freeze 3. There was also no web filter...

    Apparently it is. They even went as far as not having an antivirus. Also, I think they did the freeze after the Win10 Service Pack got DLed, but not installed. So it's installed at every shutdown. :rofl2:

    There is a way to bypass the password by using the backdoor password that every mobo has. Every BIOS has a backdoor password in case you forget the password. This is explained here: http://dogber1.blogspot.co.uk/2009/05/table-of-reverse-engineered-bios.html which states that for most brands, a checksum is displayed after entering an invalid password for the third time. You can then use the checksum to brute force the password. This tool here bruteforces the password, and it's online which is a bonus: https://bios-pw.org/. As far as I am aware, I think this works for laptops however there is also default passwords that every vendor supplies too: http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/reference/biosp.htm.

    Also, removing the CMOS will sometimes not do the trick; you will have to actually use a dipswitch on the Mobo labelled CLEAR or something.

    Out of my discoverys if you can access the SAM and SYSTEM file. You can crack the password to any account on the PC. Or optionally delete the SAM file and you can then access the admin account without a password at all :P

    You're all so lucky that they work; poisoned PCs (NO USBS), Impero and Smoothwall MITM. I have a copy of Tails but it flags the system.

    Does the Mobo have a USB front panel port?

    Yes, but the issue is that if they dont see an AD user online, they get alerts.

    Anyways, since this has been revived, it kind of sucks that most schools use chromebooks

    So do I! My school isn't the most intelligent when it comes to the computers, which is why we also have chromebooks and iPads.
