On 1 pc, usung XP Pro, has 2 user accounts - 1 a password protected
administrators account the second a limited account. It is quite a while
since we had to use the administrators account and on trying to use it today
it did not recognise the password.

How can we overcome this problem?

TIA

Tom

Hi Will

Thanks for your reply but on trying that link get:

404 Error... Page Not Found


Oops! 404 Error...

404? In other words, the file you are looking for was not found.

There are a number of reasons why this might be, such as the page may no
longer exists or was moved.



Help again please

Hi Will

Have tried options 3 to 7 with no success, in both cases of option 5 & 7 a
message about entering a password appears and you can't get any further.
There are no other administrator accounts on that pc apart from that account
and the account we are trying to access.

Any other suggestions


Tom

Nonsense. That's terrible advice.

Tom, use NTpasswd and change the administrator password to a blank. It's
very easy. Here is the link to the program and the instructions.
