    Somehow I forgot my admin password or someone changed it on me and I cant access my administrator account. I dont have a back up disk and not sure how to reset my password or get to my password hint to maybe remember it. Can someone give any suggestions?

    Hi sunshine6851, and welcome to TSG.

    If the account has a password hint, it should have automatically appeared when the incorrect password was entered.

    I don't think we can offer much further help as the site rules prohibit assisting with most kinds of lost or forgotten password issues.

    FWiW, this forum is for sharing tips and tricks that you know of, not for asking for them. Vista operating system related questions usually go in the Operating Systems -> Windows Vista forum
