Ok so... At the moment i am trying to help one of my friends.
He got a laptop given to him from a friend, under the conditions that if he can log in he can have it. The former owner has forgotten the password.

Is there any way of resetting the password?

Thanks-Del

reinstall vista? not sure this works in vista but when you are at the log on screen press alt-cntrl-del twice then an option for admin should come up.
type in administrator as the user name and leave the password blank. good luck

Am I the only one who thinks this is a very fishy story...? I think TS is just trying to break into somebody else's laptop. Just saying.

There's no helping you, Vista is the Antichrist!

vista is blasphemy
everything purple tastes like grape
everything blue tastes like blueberry
everything pink tastes like watermelon
everything red tastes like strawberry
everything orange tastes like orange
everything yellow tastes like lemon

Let me guess. You...

-buy your computer from some form of general electronic store such as Best Buy.
-consider bringing your computer to Geek Squad if you run into trouble.
-don't know about the usage of Google.
-thinks Vista takes up too much memory.
-have only the shallowest understanding of computers.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Thank you. Vista only sucks for people who don't know how to use it.

ZEDIT: Or rather, who don't know how to use computers in general.

It also sucks for people who never actually use it and can't think for themselves and just regurgitate what other retards are saying.

We should show them the new and improved Windows Mojave.

but da mac is sooo much better coz liek it cost so much more an u get much less but i has just works lulz.
vista=acceptable.
number of bluescreens? 1 due unknown broken fan on gfx.
number of apps available? millions
upgradable? I'd just have to buy the newest amd 2 processor and my pc is safe for another 3 or 4 years

Complaining is good, it gets designers to pull their finger out if there is an issue but I don't know why people love playing the Vs game.

Macs are good. Their computers are actually worth the money, unlike Sony or HP proprietaries. It just boils down to preference.

Yep, but due to the Mac hype and the rush of fanboys lately, I can't help but think they're becoming everything they're blaming Microsoft of in their "Mac VS PC" ads...

That's me! I wish I knew more about computers...

TS, have any luck? PM me when you get it, I have chances at cheap laptops from some co-workers, and another company that sells older ones that are issued to employees and are taken out of circulation every couple of years.

On what "facts" are you basing your statement that Vista isn't good enough for you?
