  • Have disc to recover Admin. password, but I can't figure it out!

    Please don't laugh, I am just beginning to learn about computers. My sister has given me one, but she does not know the password, I can reboot the computer to the loggin screen but of course that's as far as I can go. My friend at work, lent me a disk that should allow me to reset the Admin. password, but I am confused by it. It states "that default settings were usually ok & to enter through the steps" I do have tried doing this & I have tried changing the password, but I just can't figure it out. I have been told to bring it up in safe mode and try there, but what good is that? It brings me back to the loggin screen & I still have no password. I am in desperate need of help. I have signed up at the Technical School, to start taking computer classes and I can't even get on the computer! Duh! Huh!

    What operating system does this computer have?
    Where did it come from?

      The operating system is XP home -
      The disc was made for me by our technical department at work (I work for the City of Chattanooga)
      Bought the computer from my sister 2 years ago.
