  I have an ACER laptop(aspire5733z) with a 64-bit O.S.  I have recently factory reset the computer, then proceeded to create the administrator account password protected.  I then set-up a standard account to use frequently and promptly forgot the new password to the admins.  I have 5 disk I purchased from ACER for a different problem I had on a previous laptop which is exactly the same model.  These disk are marked as follows: 1. system   2. language 3.4. and 5. recovery.  Will these disk help me to reset admins. password and if so what is the proceedure?  I would like to know what these disk do and how they do it.  thank you .  I should add of course it is windows 7 home premium.

Do a System Restore to a date prior to adding the password.

  Your answer does work for my situation.  I thought I had posted a reply back to you after I read your's saying how it could not work because it was an administrator's account and it will keep asking me for the password I did not know. Well, I apologize to you sir, reguardless if you have seen my reply or not.  Due to my infinite wisedom, I did not slow down enough to realize the precedure in a picticular order would indeed go around the administrator account and reset the time machine built into my computer.  I think that is too cool for school. What a handy little trick I'm sure I'll attempt to wear out while the rookie in me matures.

  I'm not sure at this time if I'am to mark a box or something in order to clarify my question answered correctly, along with many Thank you's.  If you could inform me how this works , I could close .
