Okay, I think my dad accidentally changed his password without knowing, and now when his computer starts up, and the login pop up screen it appears, it won't let him login. I have no idea what the password is either. Our computers are networked. I'm so confused. If he doesn't have the password he can't access his account. I was hoping there was some way to recover his password. Any help would be very much appreciated thank you.

Try it, I think it'll work. Also, upload using the free one, not the paid one, if you want.

Thanks so much! But I'm so confused, what exactly do I do. I don't have a floppy, but I can burn it to cd. I saw that that was an option. I'm so confused though.

Download the file (floppy or CD version) onto your computer, then put it in your dad's computer and boot up. There's the instructions on that site.

No problems. Love to help. Any other problems? :)

Nah, just kidding. Though, if you really do encounter any more problems, feel free to leave a topic in the forums.

Till then, good luck on waiting for the password to arrive. Have a good day!

I tried to submit my code 2 times, and they failed both times. Is there any other methods out there I can try?

well....unfortunately you've already gotten a little help here...however.....we don't know if you're really wanting to recover your dad's password because he lost it....or if your dad finally wisened up and set a password and you just want to get into his account...we're not going to be able to help you any more with recovering any passwords since we can't verify your intent.

If you have any problems with this please PM a moderator or an admin
