    I set up 2 user accounts on my xp system a while ago. My wife and I use the 'limited' log in and dont use the 'admin' sign in. Like a dumbass, I forgot the password to log into the admin side to do any changes or installs. Is there a way for me to retrieve my password or somehow login thru the account i CAN use?

    thansk for any help
