You'll have to try and remember it, because no one here will explain further. You can contact MS, though. Sorry, that's just the community rules here.

To wit:

We, the members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery/removal of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover/remove 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/removal issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery/removal issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, hard drive password recovery/removal should be taken up with the manufacturer of the hard drive, etc...

i don't understand how people can "forget" their use it every day, but still manage to forget it...I keep a notebook close to my computer with all my website/pc passwords in it so there's no confusion when logging in. As I have surfed through TR, I have also found that there's not much assistance with getting around passwords, which I appreciate. I belong to a tech group outside of TR and that is one of our die-hard rules...we do not help with "lost" passwords, we have no way of knowing if this is truly your pc or not. Best recommendation, take it to a shop.
