    Hi Gang,

    My mom died recently and she was the administrator of my PC's. The PC's had passwords attached to them and Now I can't go the administrators desktop. Can you help me out and help me to retrieve this password?

    I can get into my desktop by my desktop can't do certain administrative functions.

    I'm sorry for your Mom dying. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do for you here.

    Closing the thread for reasons stated. You can regain "control" if you do either a full Recovery or a clean install of Windows. If you need help doing that we would be able to help you if you start a new thread in the forum for operating system version you use. Thank you.
