what is the difference between a supervisor password and a bios password

Can both be cleared using a jumper on the motherboard?
Yes on most desktops. No on most laptops.
The BIOS password comes first - then the Supervisor's Windows password. If you don't do BIOS, you will never get to Windows'.
Unless you are sharing a PC with others and it is in a rather public place with open access - I recommend using neither. Leave both blank if yo8u are the sole user in your own home.

"Ineptocracy- a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers." - Merritt Man, 2011
