    I can't really tell if you really lost your password, or if you want ot disable it so your parents/boss can't see what you do.

    But if you are legit with this question then I would suggest that you contact the company and tell them your situation. See what they can do.

    seems like a good idea, cuz if theres a way how many people would "forget" passwords to numbers of computers.

    And just to add a little note, that's why it is a good idea to either use a password you know (I usually cycle between 6 different passwords) and an easy to use screen name.

    If you want to really get high tech about it, they make key chains now that will generate and/or store user names and passwords. I'm not sure where I saw that at, but I found it about a month ago and thought it was pretty cool.

    There area software applications out there that you can get that will also do the same thing. BUT I would not do that for the fact that it's probably protected by one username and password. So therefore if someone found it out and could get to your terminal at work, or desktop... or even just the file, you would be pretty much screwed.

    Just a thought...

    Next time write it on a POST-IT note, and stick it to your monitor.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.
