    The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

    If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc..

    Your Answer is to contact either the System Maker for a work around or M$ who wrote XP. You could also find where the Password was written down and reenter it from the Saved Password which you are advised to do whenever you set a Password or **** away the Load and reload the system and this time if you use a Password make sure to write it down on something and do not loose it.

    In other words, you want us to believe that you've been logging in all this time as the Administrator and have suddenly forgotten the password you've been using! Nice try! But, that boat won't float!
