Admin Account
I've lost the password to my admistrative account, I can only use the other
accounts and that puts restrictions on what I can do. Is there anyway I can
reset my admin. password or change my limitations??

Are any of the other accounts administrators? If they are, you can go to
User Accounts in Control Panel and remove the password for that account.

How to Log On to Windows XP If You Forget Your Password or Your
Password Expires
http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q321305

Go to http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/ . There you will find
zip files that will let you create boot floppy disks or bootable CDs
that will enable you to reset any system password on an NT class
operating system
