I have an old computer that I haven't turned on in years. My wife and I are moving and came across it. We wanted to get on it because it has alot of family pictures saved, but we can't remember the password. I don't have a disc or anything. I pushed F8 to take it to safe mode but don't know where to go from here...

Please help..

About your photos don' t worry...i think that there are some other ways that you can take them! Do you know Ubuntu?

Start system and press F8 key when Windows is starting up. Then select Safe Mode with Command Prompt and enter. Choose Administrator, the default password may be blank if you don't set the default administrator password before. Then you will enter into doc Command as following.

Type "net user net user xxx 12345 /add "(xxx is the locked account name and 123456 is the new password set on this account).Then you will see the Command Completed Successfully.
