Default Forgot Password in Vista Home Premium

Hello all

Recently I've got a laptop wich came with WIndos Vista HOme Premium
installed. I decided to put a Password in my administrator account, but I've
forgotten it...And there is no other open account, just the administrator one
of wich I've lost the password - I didn't create a pssword reset disk.

Is there anything I can do? Can You please Help me?

Enable the hidden Administrator account,

Logoff, logon using that account, reset your own account's password.

You're absolutely right! I have no idea what I was thinking about
when I replied. I left out an important part. Thanks for bringing it
up.

If the OP is still looking for a fix - and I doubt it since it's been
so long - entering Safe Mode and logging in as Administrator will
enable going to the user account area and changing the password on the
problem account.

To enter Safe Mode, repeatedly tap the F8 key a couple times a second
during bootup or a system restart BEFORE Windows starts to load.
