I have forgotten my password on my Acer Aspire 5333-2969 laptop. I have tried various methods to try to recover it with no avail.
Pretty much, back in August I did a factory reset to rid the laptop of a worm, setting up a password which I did not save anywhere. I cannot reset the password with CMD because an error message shows up which reads this; "This system cannot find message text for message number 0x2331 in the message file for Application.".
I do not know much about computers and I am unsure about using a password reset application from the internet, because my flash drive is labelled as (D:) and the laptop that I am trying to recover has it's files on the (D:) partition of the harddrive. Most of the other computers that I have, have their files on the (C:) partition, so I don't know if this will cause any harm.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Processor: Intel Celeron P4600
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics
Memory: 3GB DDR3 Memory
Storage: 320GB HDD
Any help with my issue is greatly appreciated, and I do thank whoever decides to help me!
