  1. i'm working on my uncles computer, remotely, and i can't remember the administrator password. he is on a limited user account. i am trying to install itunes and cannot do it without admin rights. Is there a way to reset/recover the password inside windows itself without having to use a bootcd or using the computer physically?

    os is windows xp sp2
