Administrator account locked other users ok

Posted: 02-20-2008, 10:24 PM
Hi there

I find that my admin account (as i have acitvated parental controls) wont
accept my password - states its incorrect, but i can get access to both
standard users accounts.
I don't have the back up option of resetting password as didn't realise
until I was locked out that this was necessary to have as a back up.
I scrolled all support discussions - starting in safe mode does not work
only takes me to last succesfull boot up in the kids standard account nor
does trying to reinstall windows from DVD - wont run from kids account
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should try next.
All help appreciated
