  • My Administrator password was changed, how can I make a new password?

    Due to personal reasons my stupid sister has taken it upon herself to change my Administrator password and now I have to log-in as a guest. I need to get to my files for work and I'm really getting frustrated. How can I reset the password to something else? I use Windows XP and just so ya know:

    1) Anything involving Safe Mode doesn't work. It's worse because still asks for a password and doesn't even give me the option of using a guest log-in.

    2) Anything involving cmd doesn't work either. All the things I type in say "Access Denied".

    So is there anything that can be done? I was going to try beating the answers out of her but she's a female and I don't want to be arrested for assault. While we're on the subject of legalities, could I possibly press charges against her for tampering with my computer?

      First of all, get yourself and read the forum rules!
      Using such a language on the forum is not something we are willing to accept! Although we will not beat the answers out of you, we use other means.
      But the most important is the legality of your actions. Do you own the computer you are asking us to help you crack in?
      Together with not searching the forums before asking the question and not posting in the Welcome thread in the Coffee Lounge, I would say you started with the left foot.
      I would read those rules and start from scratch.

        Sorry, I didn't know personal things would upset anyone who doesn't know me, especially when the language I used wasn't that bad.

        First of all I'm not asking to crack into anything, I'm asking for a password recovery or how to reset the password. Second, yes I own the computer and I have files that I've spent hours and hours hunting down on it.

        Ok sure I should've searched the forum first but I DID make an introduction thread (named: Yeah hi) but I guess talking about hating my family was cause enough for someone to delete it.

        Thanks guy.

            First of all I've moved your thread to the forgotten password forum (so you posted in the wrong forum)

            Second your hi message is merged in the correct welcome thread.

            So for me it seems you didn't read the forum rules.
            Anyhow, back on topic please.
