    My cd/dvd drive is broken... THanks to my daughter!! The only way I'm
    still able to use my computer is through my husbands account.

    oh, that does make things more difficult the only thing I can suggest is
    to replace the drive ( which is something that you would probably need
    to to soon any way). The cost of cd/dvd writers is very reasonable these
    days $20 - $30 I would guess, I'm not in US so that's a guess based on
    local prices in UK) only other way would be a bootable USB pen drive if
    you have access to one of 1GB or larger.

    the main thing I can say is that the problem is solvable :D

    Just a thought If your Husbands Account is also an admin account you
    can reset your password from there, if not then it's a case of the disc
