Lol my dad and his girlfriend got in fight the other day, and being the stupid, selfish ***** that she is, she went and changed his windows password to who-knows-what. He can't log in or anything and he needs to use his computer to contact his lawyer (long story). How do you get around this problem? I told him to try to boot into safe mode, but i've never done it, and neither has he, so we really didn't know what to do. Please, he needs to use his computer.

boot into safe mode, log in as administrator and change password back. Same way you would with your regular account, you know control panel, users.. etc<br />
<br />
or do you mean booting into safe mode in general?? press f8 when starting your computer, then select safe mode.<br />
<br />
Really simple.

LOL, thats a problem. Is he on a domain? Safe mode is probably best bet, then log in as Administrator...<br />
<br />
EDIT: Damn you atomicfission....

Lol my dad freaking hates this woman. She stole $1200 from him (right before my brother's birthday), and bought a crappy little saturn. My dad comes home, sees the new car and his empty bank account. Yelling and arguing insues, and he comes to live with me, my mom, and my brother for a few days. He goes back home and his house is TOTALLY empty. All she left was his couch, washer/dryer, fridge, computer, and his clothes. The stupid ***** stole everything. He tried to get on his computer to contact his lawyer, alas, she changed the password. They only use one ID between the both of them, so he got pwned on that deal when she changed the password.<br><br>
She even stole his couch cushions so he couldn't sleep in his own home.<br><br>
Yeah, she's in jail right now.<br><br>
You're probably asking "Why would she do that? She wouldn't do that for no reason..." Well, the truth is, she's a stoner/drunkard, has an IQ of about 53, and she's overly emotional about everything. I guess that kind of goes along with having a IQ. She's just mad because her two kids (age 19 and 21) are just as stupid as she is, and on top of that, they're criminals. She knows my dad hates them, and she just couldn't handle it.<br><br>
Ahh, good times.

Just FYI in case this happens to the admin account, you can reset the password with this:<br><br><br><a href="http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/" target="_blank">http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/</a>
