The kids were fooling with the computer. When the computer is turned on we now get the message "Power-on Password" and a key symbol. We have no idea what the password is. Is there a way around this or to disable it?

If this password is on boot (before the windows splash screen) then it is probably password set in the BIOS.

If you don't know the password then you would have to Clear the CMOS.
You will need to refer to the motherboard manual to find the exact instructions.
