    Question Win 7 System Password

    I assume this is answered somewhere in the forum. However, I have not been able to come up with a search that finds it.

    When initially setting up each of my Win 7 PC's, I was requested to create a system password, which I did. Unfortunately, I did not keep track of them.

    Now, when attempting to access one Win 7 PC from another, in Win Explorer, via my home network, I am asked for the system password for the other PC.

    Are these stored somewhere in the registry? Or, would I need a password access CD, normally used for accessing the Win log-on PW to also access the system PW?
