    I don't have the laptop with me right now, I'm on a public computer, so I wanted to ask you what do I do if she has an administrator password set? Is there something else I can try??

When your in the screen where you select a user press ctrl+alt+del then type administrator with no password if she didnt set a pasword for that user then itll go in.. just a matter of removing/changing your other user accounts passwords then.. -this may not always work so tell me if it diddnt :D

Reset button

You must realize that if an Administrator forgets his/her password, then you might have to start all over. It is your sole responsibility to remember the password, no one else's. Next time use a password manager, such as KeePass.

I set a bios password to keep my sister and niece off my laptop to prevent them form using it because they always download and open emails from people they don't know and go unto sites that have viruses,...

That's crazy. so expensive. I don't think you have to pay so much money.
There are many BIOS password recovery program in the market, some of them can word very well under Windows XP.
For example, Windows Password Recovery Basic, it only cost $19.95.

Administrator Password Problems

I found this:

http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=305

I've never tried it, so I would be interested to hear if it works for you.

Also, if the computer does not boot from the CD you'll need to go into the BIOS and make the CD a bootable device.

Good luck.

FORGOTTEN PASSWORD

you should be able to press F8 on start up, so as you are able to start in safe mode, the option will come up and highlight the line 'Start windows in safe mode' and press enter. When windows starts the icons will be larger than normal, so don't worry, but their will show your own account and an administrartor account, click on the administrator account and go to accounts and select the account that is passworded. You should then either be able to delete the password, change, or delete the account, when done, restart pc and it should be ok and back to normal
