ok one of my kids made user acounts for everyone in the house yes even the cat and the dog.

The problem is that he made his acount the admen acount and created a pasword for it now I can't add or removew any programs or get to most of my files.

Is there any way to over ride the password and unlock the computer?


HELP ME AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

You could beat the passward out of him for his account, go in under his logon and promote your account to an admin then you will be sorted.

If it is xp pro then you can try going in safe mode and trying the login administrator with no password as people tend to not set up admin passwords when installing the system. Otherwise you can buy software of the net to allow you to change the password, I seem to remember that it's somewhere between $20 and $40. I can find the details for you if you like, I bought the software a while ago and it really does work. So much for XP security

There's lots of free tools available to reset the password, some on this page half way down.
