    I'm running a bootcamped Windows Vista and I forgot the password to the only admin account. Anyway to fix this without reinstalling the entire system? I don't have access to an installation dvd now either, so anything using that is not possible.

    Not free if you haven't bought PC Disk Tools. Which I haven't...

    Saw that sight before I came here. tried using one of the options (most need the installation cd) but I can't figure out how to mount an .iso on my flash drive, and my computer refuses to accept y only blank cd.

    I'm also at college at this time, which is why I don't have a lot of this stuff.

    reading the reviews on the link you put up Karl, it seems like I won't risk using that software. Too many bad reviews for my taste. I'm going to try the IT at my school tomorrow, but thanks for the help.
