    I hope that at least ANYBODY can help me before I'm going crazy.

    I lost the passwort for my Administrator-Account :(

    Everyone that I asked didn't know what I could do to get it back.
    But I have to get it somehow.

    Please, if You've an idea how to help me -> write it here.

    Hope to hear from anyone....

    Thanks for your quick answers, but Iceman...You'r idea doesn't wok :(

    I can only use the non-administaror account of XP and it seems that this command doesn't work.

    By the Way....nearly nothing works when you're not the admistrator. That's the major problem I also have.

    well, I'm sorry, but that is the only answer I can give you, this website forum, has a nice clean record, so any other information about getting this would probably be better off finding out elsewhere.

    good luck :D

    if you go to edonkey and download super erd commander2002 you can change any password in a friendly winxp environment...admittedly you should pay the 800$ for this fine admin tool, but that is up to your consience. Works like a charm!

    sorry to here you forgot your admin password ,. its best just to back up everthign important as reinstall from a clean format,
    there are certan tools you can use to get the password back,
    but they cost ££££ + ya gonner need other things too,

    like glaanieboy said try that site but dont get your hopes up on gettin the password back its not allways as easy as it sounds
    it can depend of your hrd drive is ntfs or not.
