    My daughter has a Windows Vista Home Premium laptop. She recently changed
    her password and promptly forgot what it was. Now all she can do is login as
    the Guest account but is unable to perform many routine functions that she
    had on the original administrator account. I know that there is another
    local administrator account but can not access it and now she can't even get
    into windows to change her administrative password. She does not have a
    Windows Vista CD with this HP laptop and did not create a backup boot disk
    for the password. Is there a way to login directly to the computer as the
    local administrator (presuming that it does not have a password )....via boot
    command prompt or something. Also, when we try to go into Safe mode with
    command prompt, it does not work, either. Stumped.
