Hey, I just did something very stupid. I created a security password for my hp laptop and went and forgot it. I'm pretty sure I used one of the questions (I think there were only two) provided but I can not remember what it was and there is no way of pulling it up. Is there any way of finding out what they are or of getting in any other way?

MS: Forgot VISTA Password?

If it's the PW to theAdmin account and there's no backup/record of it then you're prolly sunk, but check that out and see if it helps

Beyond that suggestion the rules forbid the discussion of methods to bypass the password.
