    Forgot only account password, no vista disk or password reset disk..

    I forgot the password to my computer, and it is the only account on the computer. I do not have a reset disk and I dont think I ever had a Vista disk. I cannot use that computer at all. What is the easiest way I can fix it?

    Hello collinshumate,
    I'm afraid there is only ONE way out in your situation. Use Method Three, and only method three, from this tutorial. Click the link below.

    Read and study the link above.
    Download the files, make a bootable CD.

    Reinstall Vista(with borrowed Vista DVD, using the product key on your system), or create Recovery disk to boot off. Boot into Vista advanced recovery utility and perform a System Restore to a point before you changed the password. The old password will then work.
