Help Needed

Hi, Somehow I can no longer login to my desktop/family computer as the Admin....

I don't know if one of my teens changed the password of what the deal is..

I tried the instructions above but can't get the system repair disc created as it keeps asking me for the admin password (which is what I don't have)

What can I do?? Can I create the system repair disk on my laptop?? then use it on the desktop??

Help Please.... :0

For some reason it seems the disk is not booting, have a look at this tutorial at the link below to see if you can get a USB stick to boot as the recovery disk, put the ISO file on the USB stick.

The registry edit to reset password worked like a charm. Awesome. Man so why even password protect the pc if it's that easy to circumvent? Just from a casual passerby?

That wouldn't have worked in this situation. My friend last night gave me his old laptop in trade for one of my old lcd monitors. Anyway, I totally forgot to ask him about the password when I got home as I live an hour away from him and it was about 10pm when I got home. I'm impatient sometimes and I wanted to get into right away so I can do some maintenance and such.

No mate, I meant for you to create it for future need.
