I have a new Asus computer with Window 7. My daughter forgot the computer password. I tried to use the Safe Mode option but I don't seem to locate it. Can somebody help me please.

These kind of questions are always suspect. This could be a stolen computer, or you could be the brother, or someone else who should not be accessing the Information on the computer.

As for safe-mode, you cannot change someones password withing safe-mode anymore.

The only option you have Is an admin account or a reset disk, which she should have been prompted to make when creating a pass, or using her hint to try and remember the password.

There are other ways, of course, but I won't divulge such Info online.
