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.

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' (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.

Re: Forgot my admin password

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.
