  • lost administrator password

    This is a tricky one. i recently lost my administrator password but i do have another account on my tablet pc without admin rights that im using now.

    My tablet doesn't have any floppy or CD drives, it has three USB ports and i have a 1 GB flash drive with 350 MB left. i can clean it out and have more space if needed.

    This account does have restrictions and i cannot use the command promt.

    I also have followed the directions on the sticky and it doesn't help so please don't direct me there.

    can anyone help me? thanks.

    Also, can somebody tell me how to get the password code and some kind of program that will decode it IF POSSIBLE. That would save me so much time, thanks.

      You say you have followed directions: what have you actually done?

      Some laptops can boot from a USB stick, so you may be able to use that in place of a CD-ROM, otherwise can you borrow an external floppy / CD drive?

      Please note that, due to legal issues, we cannot make any recommendation about decoding passwords.
