Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I am admin on my son's pc with parental controls on his account. i forgot the admin password, cant retrieve it. what do i do because on his limited account, i cant even download any fixes, plus he has not back up disc as his back up is on a different drive. please help
Officially, there is no known way to retrieve an administrator password on vista, except by using the "forget password" feature when you are at the Login screen, and hope you remember the password reminder.
unofficially, however, there are plenty of tools out there that will do the trick as well, as long as you know the risks that are involved. you can do a google search for them. They can be dangerous to use, and in some cases, illegal to use depending on the country you hail from, so make sure you do your research, are comfortable with the possibility that you might damage or lock yourself out of your operating system with some of them, and that your country's laws allow the usage of them. (you have been warned :~))
