    Like an ass, I have forgot the password to start my other computer. Checked Google but all I can find is that I must install windows again. I don't have the disk, so I would have to buy a new copy of windows. This would of course cost a little money, but I would also loose a lot of data and programs. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and plus rep for an answer that works. The currant operating system on the PC is Vista by the way.

    Thanks in advance for your time,

    James:)

    Buy a password removal disk. Can get them for about $20.
    boot into a self boot environment and run the software which will reveal the password.
