sorrey to hear you got fed up but there is a program i use at my company to nul a forgotten password most of the time it works ok but if you use EFS encryption you will loose that data by wiping a pssword the program is passwordrenew.exe and you need a working computer to run it on just point it at the windows directory on the target drive and it will display a list of user accounts you can than either change or remove the password and than boot the drive normally.

or if you want to use c as an external drive and only need access to the files you can alwas just take ownership of them using this tutorial http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421

thought you would like to know if you ever get locked out of your account again

Yes.
Thank you for your time on that.
It is good to know.

I'm now ignoring my PC, knowing the task that is ahead. :-/

My wife got us online last night, so it's just a matter of downloading . . .well, pretty much everything. ;-)

Thanks again all.
