I forgot my administrator password and can only log into guest. When I log into I can't do anything because access is denied. Do I need to install the operating system again? Even booting in safe mode required a password for the administrator.

Unless there is no password- you often see the password prompt box, but there is no password, so just try pressing the Enter key to log on.

It's not clear to me, whether you mean a personal user account at Admin level......or, the actual Administrator account. These are two different accounts.....

There is no other help except this from Microsoft, >> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305

If there actually was a typed password, and you have forgotten it, there is nothing we can help you with because that is a violation of our terms of use for this site. I have to Close your thread.
