Stop shouting (capitals) and don't give your email address!

http:// support.;en-us;Q321305 is what that should have said - copy and paste into your browser address bar and remove the space before support and before microsoft.

PS - don't put your address here; if people want to contact you, they can click the envelope beside your nickname.

Also, some consider typing in capitals to be shouting and it can mean that people are reluctant to answer queries.

Making the assumption that you haven't set up a password for the administrator, reboot and press F8 after the post screen. Select safe mode. Go into control panel and select user accounts. Select the user that you want and one of the options is to delete the password. Another is to change the password. Seems to me these are pretty much the same as you do not need to know the old password to change it!!
