    Help! I changed my admin password and cannot remember what it is. How can I
    reset it? I don't have anything saved to a floppy etc. Please tell me there
    is a way to recover my password.

    Please anyone?? I have done a search and can't find any answers to my
    problem I have a Gateway Notebook that I bought a few months ago, but I
    didn't buy the insurance that replaces problems. I called Gateway last night
    and the girl that I talked to was no help whatsoeve r. She didn't understand
    that I forgot the Windows Admin password, not the HDD or anything else. Am I
    making any sense?? PLEASE..... SOMEONE??????

  3. Try Elcomsoft System Recovery:

    http://www.elcomsoft.com/esr.html

    This is a bootable CD (or you can create bootable USB flash drive) that
    allows
    to reset or change passwords of any users including Admin, unlock/enable
    locked/disabled accounts, give Admin privileges to regular accounts and
    more.
    In some cases, original password can be recovered almost instantly, so you
    don't even have to reset it. Alternatively, you can dump password hashes to
    USB flas and run the recovery on another machine (though that may be time-
    consuming).
