    If it's your Admin Password, then you need to find someone who has a password removal tool.
    Every computer tech worth his keep should have one. I do!
    Ask around, the computer shops in your area.
    You shouldn't need to "Send it in" anyplace.

    You never did finish out your control panel with your location. If you were close by, I'd fix that for you.

    Good Luck and Happy Holidays!
