Windows Vista Administrator lost password by tarathezebra
I'm quite savy at computers but this is tricky. My mom has me set on parental controls for Windows Vista. She gave me her password and I turned them out, logged off and then logged back on to my account. Then, when I turned off the computer and she turned it back on the next day, her password didn't work. She's called people and apparently, I changed the password without knowing I did. Here's...

Password expired - change pw - Access is denied by JasonD
I booted up my Vista Ultimate this AM to a "Your password has expired and must be changed message." It offers me 3 fields, 1st one is filled in (my old pw presumably), 2nd says "new pw", 3rd says "confirm pw".

Running Vista Business w SP1 Have a simple setup, with one user - an User Account Control is turned OFF. Since I use a Hard Drive Password, I prefer not to use a Windows login password. During normal bootup, my User login occurs automatically, as desired. However, if Vista goes into Sleep mode, when I activate it there is no automatic login. It shows the screen with my User Name and below...

Accounts for Multiboot configuration by Alois Steindl
Hello, on my PC I would like to have both Windows XP and Windows 7 installed. Is there any possibility to share the accounts between these systems, such that user A on XP is also recognized as the same user on Win7? EasyTransfer transferred the settings of these users, but assigned different user IDs, so that files and directories owned by user A on WinXP belong to an numeric account on...
