I have been asked to try to speed up my OHs little brothers laptop but when he first had it due to concerns about security his parents asked me to ristrict access so i set a admin account for his parents and now we can not remember the password is there any soluctions. I can not download any programs includiung password reset programs as you need administraters permision.

[COLOR=YellowGreen]Did you turn off the main administrator account?

If not, go through safemode.[/COLOR]

if you can het the hard drive into another machine you can use various recorvery programs. Also what about the Administrator account? that is the one created on install. I think you hit ctrl-alt-del and login type in Administrator and if there might not even be a password for that account, if there is then maybe you can guess that one.

The first account created was my ohs brother which was then changed and an admin account created under his parents name

These password hacker programs aren't so easy to use. If the OP doesn't do something as basic as keeping a password when restricting acess then...........

Sorry if you feel offended. I'm not a computer guru in any way but I do help familiy and friends out from time to time if I can. If your lot are anything like mine, then they haven't really got a clue and the onus was on you, as the 'expert' to make sure the password was kept safe.

Just re-install the OS and do whatever you were planning to try and speed it up.... just tell them that it's either that way or that you can't speed it up for them now as they lost the admin password.

The main administrator account is always created, is always called Administrator and is hidden from the log in screen. unless you've disabled it later then it's still there, in addition to the named account you made with admin rights, and the limited account

[FONT=Verdana]Please can you confirm which version of Windows your running? If you can confirm that then we can provide further options for you and post in guides you can follow to get this resolved.

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:[/FONT]

You will have to use another pc to download software and transfer it across
As far as I know, theres no way of doing it without software
