Question about Computers & Internet
Until now I was the only user in my computer and I didn't need to use any password, but I remember that I did store one for the admin when I installed windows XP. My roommate asked me to use my computer and after he messed up one of my files I decided to add another user and to block the access to some of the folders. Everything went great and I created the User, changed the folders setting and the way you login to my computer. When I did restart I have 2 users, but I forgot the admin password and I can't login with my user only the new user I created. I can't change anything because the new user have limited access. I can't believe I did something so stupid, please help I am desperate. I have windows vista on my new rent to own used comp, and I had just changed the name from rac to Mrs. Winn and the password from rac yes they had the password the same as the name but I had changed it and had not switched user account or turned my comp off for several days and then suddenly the comp was restarting and I THOUGHT I knew the password I made up but it don?t work can I reset it in the bios or does the battery trick work or do you have any ideas I will try any thing please can you help me? As usual mrs winn1iwont
It is difficult to retrieve a forgotten windows administrator password. I will reinstall my OS if i forget it. But if you don't want to reinstall you windows OS ,you can remove the password with USB flash drive or floppy disk by software for windows password recovery.
