    There's one possibility I can think of. If you haven't set the password to the true administrator account, it may still be accessible by booting your computer in safe mode (press F8) during boot up. Once booted, the icon for the administrator account should be visible, try just clicking on it. If it allows you access, then you can go in and change the password to the account that has the password problem.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi irishpaddy,

    If .Joe's solution does not work for you, then this may help you out. Method Three is the one that most people end up having to do.

    Reset User Account Password
