    Default [Help - Windows] How to reset my own administrator account .

    Like what the title says , Im really desparate to hack my own pc administrator account .

    Reason ?


     

    Well , my parents had this user control thingy . Each time I try to install or just update [blah blah] and what not the admin password thingy comes up . Plus , here's a twist . My parents forgot the freaking password .

    [I shouldn't go to , too much detail but my 'rents think even photoshop is like bad or something . Just cause its installed in . LMAO . Even they think msn is like bleh . Yeah , totally LMAOS .]

    The reason sounds abit LOL-ish , but that is the truth .
    Im uber desperate to get the admin password changed or just even get into it . [to change the password or remove the password completely .]
    Signature and Avatar by ME .
    Signature requests are open too .

    If you could just "hack" into the admin accounts on computers, we'd be in some trouble.

    Best solution is probably just to guess a lot, or to reinstall.

    It's actually pretty trivial to get around the admin account (not that I'll tell you -how-). It keeps computer illiterates out, and delays tech savvy people for a small while. Other than that, it offers little to no protection. It's like the lock on a door. Just because you put a lock on your door doesn't mean a burglar can't bust it open, or break your window and climb in that way.

    A key tenant in computer security is that -nothing- can protect against an attacker that has unlimited access to the hardware. It's a theoretical impossibility.

    In a way Eris , you've giving me a clue somehow .
    But for now , Im totally stuck on the situation . It ain't bad but it just means that I can't install for now .

    On what you said , I think it means that there are loopholes or ways to "unlocking" or "breaking" in the door . Ya ?

    btw's can someone close the thread? thanks .
