Re: hp admin

That would be your password to login to Windows Vista. HP Admin is the default account name that comes with HP pcs but it may show your actual username sometimes.


Has anyone created a password on this computer? It seems like it.


If you can't login you may need to login to another account (if there's another one you created) or just run Recovery to delete everything and start over again.


There isn't really a legal work around to clearing or resetting the password if you can't login.
