While trying to retrieve my boot drive missing files I was directed to use fixmbr. I inserted my xp cd and at the Welcome to Setup screen I pressed R to repair the missing files. I was prompted to enter my administer password which I did but it says it's the wrong one. I used the same one that I type in when I boot my system up. I've tried no less than 25 different passwords (having to reboot after 3 wrong passwords entered). I had this system built for me about 2 1/2 years ago from PcNut.com but they are long gone. It seems to me shortly after they went out of business I tried useing the Windows cd for fixing another problem and had the same password problem which I was never able to find. I can't remember if I ever found a work around. Does anyone know a way around this problem? I downloaded a program that one of your forum folks used but it's in dos and I have never used dos so (and there is no help file with the program)(Active Partition Recovery 3.0) I"m not to sure how to use it or even if it will work. I'm dealing with a few issues here but I'm just trying to correct one at a time. Thanks for any insight you folks can offer.
