    We have a customer with a Elo XP pc.
    They have lost the password off the local admin account.
    The user account is restricted and has no rights at all.
    The Elo pc doesnt have a cd-rom/dvd player en when i try to to run password recover tools from an external cddvd they dont run.
    I also tried from a USB stick but then i get bleu screens.
    I tried to run programs from the pc but have no rights to do so.

    Next week i have to install a new virus program but off course have no rights.
    Does anyone have a suggestion besides a new installation

    If you have tried all the recovery options, there is not much besides a data recovery and a reinstall

    Just a thought — can you put an internal CD drive in temporarily (cover off, drive hanging out the side :twisted:) and see if it boots off that?
