    Hey Having Some Trouble Recovering Admin Password

    ImRunning
    Windows XP, SP2, Logged into my kids account (saved my life), and he doesnt have admin privlidges.
    I need the admin password to install programs on this computer.
    I tried the first option with www.loginrecovery.com but it couldnt find most of my password. At work I help with writing passwords and I'm really really good at it but horrible with remebering them.

    The Second option worked with the syskey. I dont have the CD key for windows xp anymore for this computer. I would have to buy a new version if something happened to it. I DO NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN. I wanted to know if the second option was safe to run without dangering the lifespan of my XP OS.

    ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

    PS< SORRY ABOUT THE SPELLING. I CAN'T SPELL>
