Hi all - Yes, I've got an old XP (at least 5, maybe 7 or 10 years old), which really works fine for what I use it for - mainly browsing, word documents, creating .pdf files, etc, no gaming or other high intensity usage. I came across a site that recommended some security tweaks I wanted to implement (like "Disable Autoplay", "Software Restriction Policy"), and I found that I needed the admin password. The problem is that I have no idea what the password is/might be ... all these years I thought I WAS logging on as the administrator. I guess way back when, I probably set it up as an admin, then forgot the password since then. I'm guessing that there's no way to recover the password, and that I'd probably have to erase everything from the hard drive before I could log on as an admin with a new password ... which of course wouldn't be worth it. But I thought I'd check here (you guys helped me out a few months back with advice on imaging) to see if there's maybe a way to do this (log on as admin even though I've forgotten my password) without too much hassle. Thanks for any advice!
