Question about Computers & Internet
If you're running XP try this:
1) Restart in Safe Mode. Restart and as soon as you see something on the screen start hitting your F8 key
This will take you to a boot option list. Highlight safe mode and hit enter. Wait for it to finish booting in safe mode.
2) Remember that 9/10 PCs running XP do not have any password on the Administrator account that shows up when you boot in Safe Mode.
3) Login to said Admin account.
4)go to START -> RUN -> "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes) in the runbox. Click on ok.
5) You should then be able to reset your password.
If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If it didn't, or your running Vista, DO NOT rate yet just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks Maria.
