Hi osio123 - if you're running XP here is how you do it. If you're running Vista let me know.

Log in to any account that has Administrator access.
Then go to User Accounts in Control Panel.
Select the user and change the password.

For Windows XP Pro:
At the log-in screen, press Ctrl/Alt/Del twice quickly
Type "Administrator" and leave password blank.

For Windows XP Home:
Reboot, tapping F8 each second.
Select Safe Mode at the menu.
Select Administrator at login, leave password blank.
Most Administrator accounts don't have passwords.

Then go to User Accounts in Control Panel.
Select the user and change the password.

If this gets you in, go to the list on the left side, and after you change your password create a password recovery disk.

If this fixes your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. IF NOT, DON'T RATE YET. Add a comment and let me know exactly what happened when you tried it. I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Jeff
