Question about Computers & Internet
If you are referring to password :
- shut down the machine
- Power on but hit F8 continuously just before the Windows logo shows up
- scroll down to Choose "SAFE MODE" from one of the options listed
- After this has booted - Click on the Administrator's Account to login
- You can then change the password of the desired user account

Ok try this, it should work so long as the Administrators password is blank. which it is about 90% of the time
Start the computer, as soon as you see the manufacturer logo on the screen start hitting f8 series of smaller keys at the top op your keyboard.
Once that happens, you will see a menu that allows you to load in safe mode. load in safe mode and don't get scared but you will see a whole mess of items come across your screen.
then when windows finally starts up, click the start menu, then click control panel, under control panel you will see users accounts, click the account thats locked and there will be a small link that says remove password. and then that account wont have a password and you can log right in.
If the admin account does have a password, then your up a creek a lil, but there are still other solutions this one is just free..
