  1. I have for quite a while missed using my computer because major problem...

    i've forgotten my password to my entire computer and i'm to only user. so i can't get on my computer at all. I've been to my retailer they didn't help very much.

    I really need to know what should i do?

    If you can get into safemode, then you can create a second user without a password and log on using that account.

    Then you can remove the password from the primary account. If you are using Vista and have an administrator password, then this method cannot be done.

    thanks for the advice but unfortunately i've already try safe mode in multiple ways but frightenly i am with vista and am the administer with the password. but still haven't been able to remember it. Just shows how good that password was. (that i can't even remember it now)
