    Hi Guys and Girls
    Feel like a complete idiot.
    I did reset my password before I went on a tour, but did not change the password hint. Now I can't get back into my account.
    I tried some 20odd likely possibilities but :confused::confused::confused::mad:
    I can still log in to my daughters and wife's account but they are both no admins. Is there any way of getting back into my account without going into single user mode and loosing my key chain?? I seem in a more advanced age than previously admitted and Alzheimer and co seem well established! )-:
    Any help would be most appreciated, even Hacking software

    Thanks a mill for your time
    Greetings Guido
