    Do you have someone that is a familiar with burning an ISO cd?

    I have a solution but it involes burning a Linux cd on a different computer and then booting the niece's computer to change the password.

When your computer starts up, push the right "F" button (for me it is F12) and navigate until you find the start up mode called "Safe Mode". You can't do much here but it can delete administrator passwords. Go to control panel and user options, click the user and click remove password. It should work, I just forget how to enter Safe Mode. It took me about 5 reboots to find it.

    I forgot the administrator password for my gateway desktop. Any ideas?


    If you really forgot your password, try writing down all passwords you used last year, and try them one by one. If you can't find it, nobody can.
    The last option, is resetting the computer and restoring the programs, but you will lose all data and all programs installed. You have to start from scratch.

    When there were times you want to backup. you could try connect the hard drive to a connector, using it like an external hard drive, but most operating systems encrypt the data, so I don't think you can recover much data that way. The connector could be the one form this link, but there must be cheaper ones.
