    I have an old computer with XP Service Pack 3 installed. I lost the paper with the Administrator password. I have surfed for a couple hours looking for help, without having to purchase anything. Everything that was suggested not working. Any ideas from your esteemed viewers/members? Totally frustrated.

    Is the administrator account the only account on the machine? If not, it is likely that another account has administrative privileges in which case you can reset the Administrator account password. Check out this article on Microsoft’s site.
