Fixed this problem ages ago - didn't realise I shouldn't have asked in the first place. Apologies for my faux pas.

TR members do not assist password recovery. Do not respond to this thread

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Admin Password override - ...

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.. To those viewing this post: Please DO NOT respond any further to this thread.

This template has been released under the GNU public license and you are encouraged to use it as a standard reply for questions of similar nature, provided that you make any modifications available to other users.

So within these constraints I suggest that you contact M$ for a solution to this Problem as all the passwords that you have made mention of here are within Windows.

M$ should be able to help you override the Password Setup but as this is a Public Forum if we where to answer you others who are less reputable could read the answers and then use them to commit crimes.

I'm sure you understand the reluctance of Professionals to aid Criminals in any manner as it helps to protect the End Users who use the items like you.
