I forgot administrator password so have to re-install XP. But when I put in the disk, having logged on through a user account, the computer tells me only the administrator can perform the requested task. How do I get round this?

Insert the XP CD, switch off. Turn the PC back on, install from the CD.

You have backed up your data first, haven't you?

This will not help this time but, create a password reset disk when you are able to log on as admin and keep it safe.
