When your computer is on, press CTL-ALT-DEL and log off. You will see a login box. Jusy type in administrator and leave the password blank. Hit Enter. If this is your machine, and you didn't specifically set up an Admin account, the password is _________.

If this is, or was, someone else's computer, and they were smart, then this will NOT work. In that case you will have to burn a boot CD that you create with this program-

With a reboot (and that CD you have made in the drive) you can reset the Administrator password to blank_____.

Then, when the computer boots and you are logged on, you can C-A-D to get into the Admin account.
