I went to change it where it told me at systems information , but it askes me for the old password anyway. I dont remember it.i have been in and out of the hospital for a while and dont know how to do this. Please help
I know how frustrating losing passwords is. The Administator is the worst. Ive learned to leave the passowrd to start my computer blank. I love my HP - Compaq - Presario. And one of the reasons that is - is the easy to follow support from HP. I just read an e-mail that reminded me that they are there if I need any help. here's the chat support (for HP products) link that was in the e-mail. http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/contact/chat_1.html?jumpid=ex_R602_info/hho-ng-1016-chat P.S. I hope you don't have important stuff you need to get to because I think your only option is to reset your PC. That is the great thing about my notebook. There is a back up drive in the computer. If I have to - I simply click on System Recovery and my computer is back to factory condition. HP is good product. and if you don't have a back up - you can acquire a CD thru their Web sites ( But I believe there is a price). GL Jerome

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.
1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly 2. Access Safe Mode 3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password. 4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts 5. Select the account you want to reset the password 6. Change the password
Follow this procedure-
1) In the main window,where you are asked to type the password, hold control+alt+delete buttons, all together.
2) A window will appear asking for username and password.
3) In username type "administrator" and password column (leave it blank)
4) Press enter
5)Then you will be login to administrator account of your laptop.
6) From there go to control panel and click user accounts.
7) After clicking user accounts all the accounts made on your laptop will appear.
8) click on the account of whom you want to change the password.
9) Change the password and you will not be asked for current password.
try to log in with an administrator rights account . and uninstall carefully the program that locks the files...during the uninstall it might ask you what you want to do with the files...be careful cause Im not sure what exactly u used to lock them ...
It depends on what operating system your using, if it's windows XP then you should be able to press 'control' 'alt' and 'delete' twice when it comes up with the logon screen. This will then give you the option to log into an account called administrator. This will either have no password, or have the same password that you originally used to setup the account. From here you should be able to either change the password of the other account or, create a new account.
Failing that you can hang your son upside down from a window untill he remembers.
