  1. First post here, so here it is.

    I need to get a password username of one of my little sister's computer. She's only 14 and you'd think she would remeber it.^_^; anyway...i was woundering if there is anyway of getting it out of her computer.

    Dont have administrative access, her account is the only one on her computer that has Admin power.

    Hi pendant, go here Ntoffline And read the instructions, then procede to downloads and get the lastest ISO, then simply burn the iso then boot to the cd on your sis's comp, it should automatically, and just read the onscreen instructions, I would refer to the site when changeing the password, it may be confusing for you.

    sometimes there are 2 admin in system the default (hidden) and the admin that was setup by installer
    if you hit the alt,ctrl,delete keys a few times when at password prompt
    you will get the default password screen
    type administrator in the user box and leave the password box empty hit ok
    it may get you in
    try this while in safe mode worth a shot
    password resets from above link does work follow to the letter
