Password for Administrators account
Help. Please. We have a new computer and it has vista home installed. After
adding a standard account for my wife it is now asking for an administrators
password everytime we try to go into the administrators account or add a new
user. I didnt put a password on the administrators account. How can I find
out what this password is or change it without a disk? and with out having to
reinstall Vista from scratch?

Re: Password for Administrators account
Did you try just leaving it blank and pressing Ok? It will ask for it, even
if it is blank. I know there are ways to reset it in Windows XP, but not
sure if the same techniques work in Vista. If the blank password doesn't
work, let me know and I'll look around to see if there is a way to make the
XP way work with Vista.
