Judging from the poor grammar and text speak, I'm more apt to believe you are the kid trying to hack your parents computer. Run along now.

Just out of curiosity, how is it you forgot your password but remember the password for your kids account? Really, you're going to have to try much harder than that.

Can't you get to the pictures from the guest account?

So the only other account with administrative privileges is yours and you forgot the password? (Everybody's password should be DAVE. It's easy to remember.)

You can press F8 before windows starts loading to access the boot menu. Choose 'safe mode' and see if the 'adminstrator' account shows there. By default in windows 7 it's disabled but if it was previously enabled it would show. If so it may not be password protected and you could boot into windows on that account and remove passwords on the other accounts.

If it's not there, here's how to enable it, but I don't know if you can do it without first logging onto an account that already had administrative privileges:

Also you should be aware that password help is not available on this forum due to the difficulty of proving ownership.

You can also use a live version of Linux to access the files without logging into Windows. Live versions run off the CD or flash drive. Puppy is one to use. Get it from the link below.
