    Hi,

    I have a laptop from my old company which I used to use to login to work. I have not used it for some time and I can't remember either my own password or the administrator password. My old company used Active Directory so I am not sure whether any of the solutions available on the internet would work because of Active Directory.

    Can anyone help me reset either my own password or the Administrator's password so that I can use this laptop? The OS is XP.

    Many thanks

    You need to report these threads, not post to them in order for a moderator to know about it.
