    How do you get back into your computer if you've forgotten the admin windows password?

    Don't ask me anything about specs; I'm asking for someone else, it's either WinXP or 98

    Couldn't decide which world to put this in, this seemed the most likely.

    if you have a user with admin privileges get them to reset the password

    (this only works in nt os's i think).

    on the other hand if you dont have an admin...you will have to format and reinstall.
