    Should have asked a question first....I assume you mean you've lost the administrator password? If so then use the following link to get it back.

    If this is the boot disk you've downloaded then:

    just insert the disk (if it is a cd then you'll have to change the boot order in your BIOS to boot to a CD first).

    Then just follow the prompts.

    The above link will work great, it will reset the administrator password for you.  Just follow the prompts.  :)
