How do people forget their passwords to Windows? There must be some epidemic that causes amnesia.

    I have also forgoten my password. As an explanation, it is an older computer of mine and I did change it shortly before not using it anymore. So is there a way to get in, codebreaker? I have a ton of Photos and programs I would not like to lose. Please someone have an answer.

          all u have to do is press f8 at start up to get to the safemode feature. Once u get there u can go to settings and find security settings. There u can change or delete passwords. Once u do that turn the computer off and reboot regularly. Now you should have either a new password or not have a password at all.

            You'll probably need the password in order to not have one

              Now, I once misplaced a Windows CD, couldn't find it for a month and found out I had just put it in the wrong case. I've had clients who didn't realize the importance of recovery CDs and misplaced them. But a Windows password? Something you use every time you turn on or restart the computer. Any request for such a thing is always suspicious to me. And I don't buy the "my kid changed it and doesn't remember now" story either. That "kid" better start thinking!

              I got 30 PM's from someone who "mis-placed" their AutoCad CD's......imagine just casually misplacing something that's worth over $800.00                    ::)
