    Hi,
    I have forgotten my admin account password. I have one guest user on
    my computer. I want to install additional software, but my machine does
    not allow me to do any changes without the admin password. I did not do
    a reset disk. did not even realize that i should be. After I get help
    with resetting this, will I lose any data that I have already put in? I
    have just eailed all documents out so these will not be lost.
    Help.
    Thanks,
    Dotfromks
