Lost access to my administrator account

Help....I uninstalled the games that came with my computer and lost access to my administrator account. I had two accounts, one admin and one guest. Everytime I try to make changes, it requests my administrator password - but doesn't recognize it. Any suggestions?????

Hello rtd, welcome to Seven Forums!



Are you the owner of the PC or is it someone elses'?
