Locked Out
I just purchased Vista Business and set up two users with passwords. I then
transferred files from my desktop machine to the new laptop. Apparently
everything transferred fine. However, when I went to reboot and was asked
for a password, none of the passwords I set up worked. And... somewhere I
missed the instruction to build a revert password disc or whatever that is.
Where do I go from here? Can I get in my machine?

Re: Locked Out
Try booting in safe mode, by tapping the F8 key until the safe mode window
opens.
Safe mode should be highlighted, hit return,

If successful, then on the start-run line,
Type: control userpasswords2 and hit return.
Un-check Users must supply a name and password to use this computer.
Follow any screen prompts.
