    Forgotten Password (XP Pro)

    Hello Friends and Helpers,
    A friend of mine just changed the password of her Admin Account and has forgotten it. I told her that I didn`t think you could retrieve or change the password on an Admin Account and she would probably have to reinstall. Doing this would lose a lot of documents, so we decided that I would ask you first. Would a repair allow her to set a new password as this would not delete her documents? I too am missing the "Search", as I know this has been discussed before. Thank you all
    Elaine

    Thanks Cowboy,
    There is one other User on the computer but doesn`t have Admin rights, so this Account cannot be used to help. Two of your links might fix this as they don`t depend on using another Account to get in. My friend is away for the weekend to a Highland Games and won`t be back till Sunday night. She will have a go at these then, and I`ll let you know what happens.
