Yes, easily.

You can create a password XXXXX CD on another computer, then boot the CD in the locked computer, and it will allow you to reset the password.

HERE is where to get the necessary software.

Thanks,

I am not as computer savvy as the information I read would need. It doesn't seem easy to me and I need simple instructions in every day language. I am totally confused.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
