    and you cant get into your admin files to make changes... heres the deal. restart your computer, hit F8 and startup in safe mode. when your log-ins come up, pick the administrative icon. in safe mode you are not asked for a password. go in and remove passwork protect and bingo, you are back in.



    and yes, i forgot my admin password :rolleyes: :wtc:

    Or you use a Linux boot disk with some program on it that goes and steals the admin password.
