    Here is the problem I have. I have a PC and I didn’t turn it of for years. Now, I want to install a program and it requires me to restart computer, but I forgot the password. I would like to know if there is a way to see what my password is without turning PC off, going to safe mod and doing stuff to reset password. Thanks for your help in advance.

    The password is not stored on in a manner for you to be able to retrieve it. If you do a search on the Petri main site he has information on how to reset the password

    Umm… how about changing the password before you power it off/reboot it?

    Hit CTRL+ALT+DEL. Select change password. Don’t fill anything out, hit OK. If it works, you have a blank password.
