Hey, I am on my administrator PC, the main account. My sister added a password to it, and didn't turn the PC off, I don't know the password, so how do I remove it?

that's probably something we can't discuss here unless you are currently logged in.

Call your sister and get the password, we can't help you remove a password you dont know.

She won't give it :(  Isn't there anything we can do like from command prompt or something?

To remove the password it first prompts you to enter your current password. So even when already logged in you still need to know the password.

Unfortunately, assisting you to remove this password would break the forum rules.

Nope, either your sister tells ya, or get ahold of the manufacturer and prove ownership and they may be able to help. Even asking to bypass a PW is against forum rules.

We cannot help as you have no way of proving to us that you have any right to be accessing the computer.

OR to put it another way. If you had set a password on your computer because you had private things on it and your "sister" had came here asking for help to access it, and we had helped her, how would you feel about it then?

There are methods, we don't support or assist with them.

Sounds like someone needs to freshin' up on the forum rules.
