    Hello all

    Recently I've got a laptop wich came with WIndos Vista HOme Premium
    installed. I decided to put a Password in my administrator account, but I've
    forgotten it...And there is no other open account, just the administrator one
    of wich I've lost the password - I didn't create a pssword reset disk.

    Is there anything I can do? Can You please Help me?
