Hi Guys,
I changed the administrator password and one of my user passwords on my pc. The problem is I don't remember what the new ones are, write them down is useful, and I didn't make a password reset disk or turn off security features, my other account can't instal a utility from the flash drive. Talk about being the clown of the month. Help

well then as far as i know there is not much you can do, you could reformat it and reinstall but with the Windows Disk you will need to enter the admin password (which you dont know). there may be some other software that just formats it with out having to enter any password, but you could always put you current hard drive as a slave on another comp and format it from there?
