My wife has windows xp home edition. She somehow hit the wrong something which made her computer lose all it's windows default settings, and caused it to shut down. Now, when I restart the computer, it asks for the administrator password. Unfortunately, she has no idea what that password is. Is there any way to retrieve that password, or bypass this? Please help. She's hard to live with without her computer :)

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

Hello brokn52,

Can you further elaborate on what you mean by "Now, when I restart the computer, it asks for the administrator password." Where does it ask you for the administrator password? During the Welcome/Login screen or even prior to that screen?

It's always nice to have some feed back after things are fixed =)

Thank you for responding. We were able to get past the password issue. The problem was in BIOS, and that's been taken care of. Thank you again for your efforts to help the idiot :) I'm sure I'll be back... all of you are great.
