    Admin Password


    Please can someone tell me how to restore my computer back to factory settings without having access to the admin account. Somehow my password changed and I cannot remember what it is. I did not create a recovery account when I first bought the computer and now I have to use a non-administrator account just to access my computer. I have looked on google and tried the things suggested but it keeps asking for owner password. If I had that I wouldn't need to restore anything. Please help!

    :)
