    Hi I have just got a new pc and forgotten the login password already! How do
    i get around this without using one of those recovery software programs?

    Bren,

    I had somewhat a similar problem when I was trying to change the login
    password. It kept coming up and saying the new password was typed
    incorrectly, so I figured it didn't take. The next time I logged on my pc,
    it would not accept the old password, and I didn't bother remembering the new
    one because it said it was incorrect. I had to call Dell, and we ended up
    doing an unnecessary reloading of Windows, but it really just took doing a
    system restore from an earlier date. You might try restoring the system from
    an earlier date and see if that works. It did for me.. I hope this helps...

    You are a one-trick pony: You have made 11 posts since April 9 - all
    concerning lost passwords, and all to DEAD THREADS FROM ONE OR TWO
    YEARS AGO.

    Wise up.

    There is also a " Windows Password and Registry Editor" on line.
    Google that phraise, it gives you a linux boot disk to reset Windows
    accounts and passwords.
