Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I assume you are talking about windows XP/ media center.
Did you also loose administrator password ?
Sometimes administrator password by default is blank. So try this, at login screen press Ctrl+Alt+Del type username as administrator and leave the password field blank and try loggingin in.
If it works, you can goto control panel and reset your original user password.
Hope this works...

If winxp home
2. press f8 to go into advance start up options
3. select "safe mode", then press enter
4. log on as the administrator (you better remember the password for this one if any... generic installations may not have a password for this account)
5. try to change the password (I'm not sure if you can but you can try) if your system has the ntfs file system you may have to create an administrator priviledged user and have that user taking ownership of the files you can't access as an administrator... ... if you have fat32 file system. you can just go right into your files..)
if winxp pro
1. you can just at the log on screen press ctlr+alt+del combination twice
2. type "Administrator" (and password if provided at time of windows installation)
3. start > right click on my computer> manage computer > users and groups > look for user name (your own) and right click>all tasks>set password (this will reset allow you to reset the password.)
4. read the desclaimer first then go for it.
