This is not really a hosting related question but if you had a netbook with windows 7 and the child forgot his password to get into it since they were on a punishment where they lost it for a month and the password suggestion does not ring a bell to them how would one access the netbook with an administrator account or reset the password on their to something new without loosing the data on the netbook

I should mention since its a netbook their is no cd rom and when I try to bootup press f8 I get the option to reset password but it asks me to put in a password recovery disk in even though their is no cd rom??

You would need either an external USB CD-ROM drive or a bootable USB drive with something like UBCD4Win or hirens boot disk that has a windows password change Utility on it.


Thank you for the suggestion
