Hi zbarratt,
(I'm assuming that you're problem is in your computer/laptop) All you can do now is to reset the c-mos to erase the password. You have to pull-out the internal battery of the c-mos. This is like the watch battery. Leave 5 mins then re-insert. Power on the PC and you can access it again...
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

You need to download a Windows password cracker, burn it to CD/DVD, and boot it outside of the Windows environment. This solution will show you how to do that.

1. Download the Ophcrack Windows password cracker from here. For Windows 7, click on the ophcrack Vista LiveCD. Ophcrack is one of the best free Windows password recovery tools available. It's fast and easy even for a first time Windows password cracker.

2. Burn the Ophcrack LiveCD ISO file to a CD/DVD using the Windows 7 Disk Image Burner or another burning program.
2a. Right click on the ISO file and select Open with and then select Windows Disk Image Burner.
2b. Put a CD-R or DVD-R into the DVD/CD drive and select Burn. Wait for the burning process to finish.

3. Restart computer and press F10 or appropriate function key for your computer to enter the temporary boot menu. It may be F12 or F9 etc. Look at the first screen that appears when you turn on the computer and you will see which key to press. You also could enter the BIOS and change the boot order if you would prefer that method. Many computers have already have the CD/DVD drive as the first boot drive, so you may not have to do this step.

4. The Ophcrack LiveCD will now boot. Hit enter to select the Graphic Mode option.

5. Ophcrack will automatically begin cracking your passwords. The longer and more complicated the password is the longer it will take to crack. 99% of passwords are crackable. Any password over 14 characters cannot be cracked. This program found my 8 character password which contains letters and numbers in less than 10 minutes.

6. Write down your password when it's cracked. Remove the CD/DVD and restart computer.

Note that i re-posted the solution already provided by a different user so the credit goes to :

I have forgotten my password please help me


If this is a user account you are talking about, just log in as Administrator and re-set it. (If you didn't specify a password for the Administrator account when the machine was set up, then leave the password field blank.) If this is the Administrator account you are talking about, it gets a bit tricker. See these for more direction:

Forgotten administrator password can i reset?


Try tapping the F8 key every second or so as the computer first starts up. This should take you to a startup screen where you can choose to open Windows in SAFE MODE. Use the arrow keys to move the highlight to SAFE MODE and hit ENTER. Then try to log on as ADMINISTRATOR. If you didn't ever do this and set a password on that account, now you can get to CONTROL PANEL-USER ACCOUNTS and set an ACMINISTRATOR password (don't fforget it this time) and reset the user accounts passwords too.

My 12 year old daughter's MSN hotmail account has somehow been hacked into. The person who is stating that they are my daughter has been using obscene language to her friends. Is there any way that we can...


Try to go to http://login.live.com/ and try the forgotten password option, and you'll have a new password in your mailbox, log in with that and change the password inside and she'll be able to log in to her account once again.
