I have forgotten the password to access my laptop. I also don't have the administrators log on.  I have downloaded some cracks that are supposed to work with CD only systems but I can't get them to run, can you please tell me how to get in?

The best way to get working again is to get your hands on a copy of Winterals Admin Pak.  You can make a cd rom that will let you boot into windows and use their "Locksmith" program.  I have been able to get out of a couple sticky situations that way.  I haven't seen many other ways to get around this.

Thanks,

Wes

I have used this CD before and it works great.  I will give you the link first to the discription of what it is and then the second to the instructions on how to use and the download for the ISO is toward the bottom of the page.

If you follow the instructions you should be able to reset the administrator password.

Good Luck.

Well I know my solution works and I am sure that dwesman's solution works as well so how about a point split?
