    I lost my administrator password because i also registered as a standard user (recommended, you see - so i forgot all abt admin privileges).
    HP recommends to bring everything back to factory state. That means I loose all files and additional installed programs. there must be another way ? Can I just reinstall Vista ? What happens if I do ? Do I lose all files etc also ? The funny ;) thing is without the admin password you cannot back up or restore either ....
    I had an automatic back up set up. A 10 day trip out of the country and that stopped working also.
    Any suggestions ?
