Administrator Password Lost

  Genius1 15:11 07 May 2008

Yes, I know. I've done the unthinkable and lost the Administrator password on my Windows Vista Home Premium PC. I know the password to the other two non-administrator accounts and have access to the Guest account.

I wanted to run this program (click here) to find the Administrator password but cannot install any programmes as User Account Control prompts for the Administrator password.

I have the Dell XP restore CD and the Dell Vista upgrade CD.

Any help greatly appreciated.

In the end, I had to do a restore, but everything's sorted out now and the system's running like a dream.
