[XP Home] Stupidly forgot Admin password

Postby Black|Dahlia » Fri Mar 02, 2007 6:08 am

Hi all,

i was playing with "control userpassword2" command last night, and somehow ended up forgeting the Administrator password. I still have a recovery CD, but:
1. Is there any way(s) to reset the Administrator password without re-install using recovery CD? (The other user on the machine is a restricted users)

2. IF i use the recovery CD, would my data on My Documents folder and my non pre-installed programs also erased?

Thanks
Dahlia

(1) Yes it is possible (and you thoght your data is safe ...).
Try these links:

(2) Yes, but you can still backup your data before reinstall.
