You forgot your account password or the account named administrator. If you have an account with administrative privileges you can just reset the administrator's password with that account.

Hi Alexis,

This is the only one I've ever had success with:

http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

Click on the "Bootdisk" link and scroll down to the "Download" section to get the zipped files.

Make sure you read the instructions on creating and using the utility (you should be able to just accept all the default values, but that depends on your computer setup). You'll need a formatted floppy disk.

Good luck,

Columbo
