Hello everyone,

I really messed up. I put my username (as administrator) on my son's laptop computer and also a username for my son (limited user). We both have passwords, but I forgot mine. Now, I can't logon to his laptop and he only has limited usage. How can I unlock my username and create a new password.
Any help would be greatly appreciated (by myself and my son)

While I understand your dilemma - unfortunately we don't know if this is a valid request, or a way around the rules ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/boardrules.php ). As such, we cannot help you with retrieving the password. My regrets, but I'm closing this thread.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
