Sorry we are not allowed to help with bypassing passwords as we have no way of knowing the computer is yours. Contact the computer manufacturer.

Sorry, but it is against the forum rules to assist someone in bypassing security since there is no way for anyone to verify that you are the actual owner of the computer. I suggest contacting the manufacturer or the place where it was purchased and show proof of ownership.

Geeez, suddenly everyone is so morally "correct"....to the OP: use google or just find another forum. I don't see how computer's manufacturer might be willing to help bypass the admin password.

Morals have noting to do with it nor is it "sudden". If you would actually read the TOS you would understand it's against forum rules. So anyone helping can be banned as well as anyone asking. We who post here are trying to help others not get Tom's Hardware or ourselves sued. I think you will find the same rules are true of any legit tech forum. So maybe it's you who needs to find somewhere else to post.

This is not a choice for me(or you) to make. The forum has a rule that does not allow it. I either abide by the rule, or face the possibility of getting banned.
