    Panic stations here, lol! I forgot the password to get into my computer (windows vista) and I dont have the original windows disk. Getting conflicting answers online, but is it true that if i buy a new copy of windows and load it onto the computer, it will wipe all the old data off and let me in?

    Thanks for the help, I really need that computer up and running :)

    James :)

    I can personally vouch for method #1 linked to above, as you obviously have another PC, it takes all of 10 minutes.

    Around 12 hours ago, I was in the same exact situation. Forgot the pass for my win7 laptop. I used hiren boot cd and cleared the password and I was able to get into windows without a prompt for login credentials. The link from above poster should help.
