My daughter has forgotten her administrator password on her Toshiba laptop running Vista, is there any way of changing it or deleting it.? Any ideas.

Thanks Balgayron

I am sorry but 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.

From 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."

Based on the forum policy, this thread is now closed to further discussion.

If you wish to PM me about some aspect of who, what, when, where, why, etc...feel free to do so.
