You place us in a difficult position...

Here's an extract from our site's Terms of Use:


"Due to the nature of online help we are not able to verify ownership, and will not be able to help bypass or recover any user passwords, cd keys, license codes, serial numbers, etc."


We would like to help, but as you can see we cannot do so.


However it would be fair to say that you could use a password reset disc that you set up (or maybe should have done) or reinstall Windows from scratch, but do make sure that your backups include everything you need and are reproducible before hand.


Perhaps the best advice is to try and remember the password, easier said than done, but trying your "usual passwords" looking through your paper records for notes you my have made, may help
