    Unhappy Win8 Admin password

    Boy do I need help! I tried Fred Langa's tip in the recent Windows Secret Newsletter about removing the sign in password. I followed the instructions, but I still have to sign in. When I go back to the Admin Command Prompt to check what I did wrong, it's asking for the admin password which I have misplaced. Can anyone help me out?

    Petter's password reset CD has always been my solution. Not sure if it works in Win8.

    cheers, Paul
