    Re: Administrator

    We have a dedicated forum specifically for this purpose.

    A little search would yield so many results but again we the mods need to move posts because folks won't do some basic searching prior to posting.

    Moved to password forum.

          I always thought it was commercial, but here is a GPL version:
          http://emergency-boot-cd-rom.en.softonic.com/

          Note that editing your first post as you have and then asking for further help is not really helpful or in the spirit of this board.

              How much RAM? Try removing a module if you have more than one.
              1 1 was a racehorse.
              2 2 was 1 2.
              1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
              2 2 1 1 2

                  I get the impression you are fairly new to computers
                  Can I suggest you get a little professional help with this one (local computer shop should do nicely)

                          Try another program, it's not legal i think, but just to check out, download Hirens Boot CD and see if it does the same thing.

                            Kevin,
                            Since there are a large number of commercial apps on Hirens CD, we rather frown upon it here unless you own a licensed copy of the app you are using. Other use is (as you point out) not legal (and using it with the app is stretching the rules even more than British MPs )

                              Well, if he uses Memtest +86, it's freeware Anyway dont consider this an invatation to piracy, just giving a last option to see what is the problem what the machine. If you need to remove the password from a user, i have a Linux cd that is 100% freeware, that removes passwords from SAM Files, winxp, win server and vista, so if you need it, i can make a iso of it, and you can download it from my server.

                              Regards
