At the welcome window do a couple of control alt deletes. This will bring up the logon box. Type in administrator with no password and hit enter.

If this doesn't allow you in you can take it to a computer shop to see if they can access the administrator account or reinstall fresh remembering the password.

It is always recommended you have two admin accounts on every pc. Having a backdoor in comes in handy.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

There are many free ways to recover or remove most passwords. See sites like loginrecovery.com for the free one or for pay is you are in a hurry, and things like john or other live cd's that can remvove password. Austrumi cd can reset them. Be warned that any encrypted folders may end up being lost. Ophcrack live may be able to hack it too.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
