So, a few weeks ago, I changed my log-on password, but didn't logoff or shut-down the computer until yesterday. I forgot the password and tried everything for half an hour, and eventually looked it up, and tried for a few more hours. I loaded in my Operating System disk, and used the command prompt on that in hopes of being able to use 'net user username newpassword', but the problem is, it's using the boot system (X:\), and not my harddrive (C:\), so I can't change any files in it.

I run Windows Vista, thank you for your time.

On this board, we can't advice on bypassing security tools. It's against board's rules.

To quote the Forum Rules:

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

I am closing this topic.
