I forgot my administrator's password. I was able to reset my kids side. When new, I don't remember setting up a password recovery disk. It didn't even ask for security questions of any type.


I understand there is a way from inside at the motherboard but you need to talk to a computer guru because I've only heard of it being done and you could easily kill your motherboard. Other than that you'll need to rework your hard drive software.
