  • Lost admin pswd!!! need help

    I recently recieved a used windows XP office version and the previous owners put a password on the Administrators account. The only account I have access to is a non administrative account and wont let me install anything on the computer or change any passwords. Its is impossible to contact the prevoius owner of the computer so that means I cant get the password. All I need is to completly restart my computer. There are no files I to keep on it. Please help as soon as possible I can only pay bills online and I need to install quickbooks fast but I cant.

      So reinstall Windows from CD -- whatever came with the laptop.
      Cheers,
