    Are you sure you have set a password?

    Control panel > User Accounts...

    Select yourself and reset the password to something you can remember.

    Get TweakUI for XP if that's what your OS is: Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP

    If not come back for another link.

    Re: Unable to find password

    Tweak UI or "userpasswords2". See this <post:=657,177>post 657,177</post:> and thread, or first replies to this thread <post:=646,759>post 646,759</post:>.

    All found with the help of the eminent Lounge Search (or my memory, whichever comes first <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>).

    But it seems none of them is as fast as Al, sorry Al. Indeed, seems to be a "XP question".

    I only figured it was XP because of the "look" of his screenshot - an XP image but I haven't been there yet in Vista, so I didn't know.

    And I appreciate YOUR reminder about control userpasswords2. I always forget about that one and the reminder is good for the "soul." Thanks!

    But as Argus points out, you don't have to remember it now.
    Just use the Lounge Search facility, like jj1972 will be doing. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
