forgot admin password, now what?

i put a password on my computer that i cant seem to remember, it's the admin password, and that is the only account i use to login to my computer.

the 'guest' login is not there.

i tried using Restore Console, but that got me to "which windows os would you like to recover?... type in the password" and that was it.

any secrets to unlocking it? sending a message to microsoft seems pointless since they will most likely say they cant do anything because of security risk for the end users.

help! thanks.

called a friend, he brought over this cd. honestly, this was easy as pie. i think i might forget my password again just so i can play with this cd.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
