Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Windows Vista Password

I lost my Windows Vista password.  When my computer boots up it stops at the welcom to windows vista and ask me for my password.  I did not make a reset disk when I purchased the computer.  Can a reset disk be sent to this computer to place on a CD and change my password? I have lost my administrator password. My operating system is Windows Vista Premium. There is another account on the computer that was previously given access to the administrator files, so I can at least work around the part about getting to my files. But I can't install anything, every time I try, the computer asks for the administrator password which I am unable to produce.

The password was a simple combination of letters that I can mostly remember, but can never recall completely. I've been trying for a week to get back into my account.

I've tried to install password cracks to solve the problem for me, but that isn't working because the only ones I can find are in installation files. If there was one that came as a zip file, I could use that.

I understand that the simplest solution would be to reinstall vista, but I would lose everything that I have installed after purchasing the computer as well as the programs that were installed by Best Buy prior to the purchase.

I want to know if there is anyway that I could find the password or have someone do it for me in a different way from simply guessing repeatedly at the log-in screen.

    I'm sorry, but that won't work. Some files require installation and I can't install anything without the password I'm trying to change. The DOS one almost worked, but it can't access the hard drive for some reason.

Windows vista password reset

Login as "Administrator" or "administrator" as the user name and the password will be either blank or "password". Then press "OK" and you should be in. Then you can go to the Users control panel & reset your password.
