Re: windows 7 administator password

Hi smilern76,

In case you have forgotten the Admin password, you may try using any user name and password you have created on this system. If that does not work, you must have created recovery CD when you got the system. That will help you in restoring your computer to the factory installed state.

If you do not have the recovery CDs the next option is to clean install the Operating system using Operating system DVD.

Thanks and Regards,
