    I recently changed the name of the admin account, but forgot the
    password without a reset disk.
    The account shows but I cannot login.
    I have searched the threads but need some direction on the best way to
    go about doing this


    It is Vista Home premium x32

    Suggestions appreciated

    Thank you

  3. BOOT YOUR COMPUTER PRESS THE F8 KEY " IN SAFE MODE TYPE IN AS ADMINISTRATER
    ,,IVE DONE THIS BEFORE,, WHAT THIS IS GOING TOO DO IS BY PASS ALL PASSWORDS
    FOR YOU GO INTO CONTROL PANEL AND REMOVE THE PASSWORD YOU HAVE SET FOR YOU
    AS A ADMINISTRATER AND REMOVE THE OLD AND CREATE A NEW ONE SAVE YOUR WORK
    AND REBOOT AND THAT SHOULD EASE YOUR PAIN AND FUNSTRATION GOODLUCK !!!
