Can anyone help me? I have searched for three days for a fix and I'
about to throw this dagg gum computer out the window. I miss Micisof
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 an
STUPID me forgotten my new (admin) password. My first mistake was
didn't create a separate user for myself. But I cant look back now. M
floppy drive is broken so any back up disk is not possible.

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

If you have access to your PC (or another) with a CD writing Capability
Go 'Here' (http://home.eunet.no/%7Epnordahl/ntpasswd/) and you can
create a bootable CD that will reset any vista password.

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

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
route.
