Hi , as title says I stupidly forgot my PW and all attempts to get back in as admin have failed . I am a guest on my own PC ! . I believe there is a programme I can d/l which can find my old password but yet again I`m frustrated because I have remnants of a prog. called Freshdownload - I get the message that freshdownload cannot take over the download and being a guest I can`t remove it ! . My hard drive is full and I`m unable to remove anything to free up space in any case .
I need a new PC anyway , but do I need an additional copy of XP or can I re-use my existing discs bearing in mind I have no password ? . Just looking to save a few £s if possible !
Thanks to all who took the trouble to reply . I`ve given up trying to download anything with this PC for the reasons stated ( just been trying for an hour , sooo annoying !) . I live in a remote area and no friends are into PCs so will wait now `til I get my new PC shortly .
This one I bought from PC World and I have the winXP discs , I also have the discs for my last PC from Mesh ( WinME ) . When configuring my new machine do I need to order a new OS or can I re-use an old one ?
