I put an admnistrative password on my old computer because of my kids. I gave my older son a password with limited security. Now I can't get in the machine to add new hardward because I don't remember my password. My son can get in but can't make any major changes to the computer. Help!

It is against the policy of BleepingComputer to provide information on methods to reset or bypass the Administrator password. Though your question is most likely legitimate, there are others who may read this topic and use the information for less savory reasons. It is for these reasons we do not provide this type of information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a private message or an email. Thank you for your understanding.
