Hello everybody,

Bought a E-machines desktop computer two years ago. Did an update yesterday and when the computer restarted it came up on screen -- administrator password. PROBLEM -- cant remember what my password is and I never made a back up/recovery disc neither for Windows Wizard to backup and create a new password. What do I do now? I am using my computer at this moment as a guest. Asking for help/recommendations please. Computer no longer under warranty.

Dale

Two years ago? Sure that wasn't 15 years ago? Wow, I haven't heard of Emachines in a decade or more.

There are Linux tools disks designed for doing exactly this. It's been a while for me so I can't tell you where exactly, but fear not, you're not hosed.

I "upgraded" from Windows 10 to Windows 7 when I also forgot my admin password. Ddn't even need a CD/DVD, all off the spare partition they put on all computers now. You see this stuff? For ex, I don't even have a CD player on this laptop I'm putting in work with. This is "ridiculous".

"Needless to say", this thread should really be stickied in the Computers sub-forums.
