administrator password??

  rabbitrabbit 14:01 26 Feb 2005

i have a damaged/missing Kernel32.dll file. so i am attempting the "Windows Recovery" from my XP disc. but i do not know my administrator password. it was so long ago that i have forgotten. what can i do?

therefore :-
i have installed XP again on another partition on my hard drive. successfully. but now i cannot retrieve old information from my previous XP setup (outlook express info, favourite websites, files in "my documents" etc, perhaps because my logon was password protected. the file cannot be accessed through windows)

a solution to either or both of these joint problems would be great. thanks.
