Admin Password help (vista)


#1

so when of my buds bought a used a dell inspiron 1720 intel core 2 duo with windows vista on its fairly new. but the problem is whenever he turns the comp on it asks for some admin password :sad: so we cant access the desktop:sad: are there programs where I can somehow reset the computer? or retrieve the password?


#2

try

u: admin
pw:admin

youd be surprised how often that works


#3

There are multiple password cracking programs floating around the net, but the one I found worked really well was a linux boot disc that allowed you to wipe the password. You don’t even have to know much about linux to use it.

I can’t find the iso but it is freely available
