    lost administrator PW, still have access with one other user account

    Hi,
    after I started up my new Dell inspiron with Vista Premium 32bit , I set up an admin account for myself and two additional user accounts for my kids. While I was logged on one of the kids messed with the account info. Now I am locked out of the admin account, but am still able to log in to my kids account.
    Is there any way to recover the admin account or create a new one without having the old info?
    thanks

    Hi Bayern, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    This tutorial may be able to help you by resetting the password for that account. You may need to use Method Three.

    Reset User Account Password

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
