Hi, kanman.

You should try logging in with the Administrator user account, or any other user account that has Administrative privileges. From that point, you can change Your user account password.

That is the extent of the assistance we can provide. It against the G2G Terms of Use to assist in any way with hacking, cracking, or bypassing security and/or passwords. Your intentions may be completely honorable, but we'd run the risk of putting up information that might help someone else do something that's less than honorable.

I hope you understand.

This thread will be closed shortly.
