    Forgot my admin password

    Can anyone help me? I have searched for three days for a fix and I'm
    about to throw this dagg gum computer out the window. I miss Micisoft
    Windows NT!!!! But someome told me Vista was alot better. :mad:

    I had just changed my password, and I am also listed as the admin and
    STUPID me forgotten my new (admin) password. My first mistake was I
    didn't create a separate user for myself. But I cant look back now. My
    floppy drive is broken so any back up disk is not possible.

    What can I do to either retrieve my password or change it. Please
    help!! :cry:

    If you have access to your PC (or another) with a CD writing Capability
    Go 'Here' ( and you can
    create a bootable CD that will reset any vista password. :D

    My cd/dvd drive is broken... THanks to my daughter!! The only way I'm
    still able to use my computer is through my husbands account.

    oh, that does make things more difficult the only thing I can suggest is
    to replace the drive ( which is something that you would probably need
    to to soon any way). The cost of cd/dvd writers is very reasonable these
    days $20 - $30 I would guess, I'm not in US so that's a guess based on
    local prices in UK) only other way would be a bootable USB pen drive if
    you have access to one of 1GB or larger.

    the main thing I can say is that the problem is solvable :D

    Just a thought If your Husbands Account is also an admin account you
    can reset your password from there, if not then it's a case of the disc
