    Need help,

    This is hard to admit, but my son purposefully changed the administrator settings on our computer and locked me out with a password. I am now a limited account holder. I can logon, but I cannot change the administrator settings without the password. We are running windows XP professional.

    Someone told me I could access the passwords in safe mode, but for some reason I cannot get to this screen by using the f8 key on boot up. I do not know if this would work anyways.

    Is there anything I can do. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me with this problem.

    Thank you,

    I beleive this computer is for a home use and not a part of a Domain!. If I were you, I would use the Teckie'z ToolKit Bootable CD and change the Administrator Account Password.

    You can find it here as a Torrent file.

      Michael, have you tried any of the following?
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2
