Default vista locked, passworded, help?

The computer i play games on is a Windows Vista, and i used to get on it fine either on anyones account or my passworded account, only 2 or 3 users were admins (including me), but turns out today my sister put some kind of lock on mine, i think it is the parental controls thing on my user (i log on with the correct passord, then it says you are restricted to log on at this time)!, and everyone else has a password, now i can't access my files or play games, not even ones that i own!!!, can anyone help me please? or no games for me.

(why though, i nkow then any of them :) i think the parental controls is a time thing, i have googled it, but its a bit complicated, and sometimes i need access to the computer >

If its anything like Windows XP you can easily get into all the accounts.

Start the computer up into safe mode (usually done by pressing f8 when it starts, if not hold down the off button during the start up screen with the windows logo before logon, that'll get it into safe mode next start up)
When you're in safe mode, log in to the System Account. Depending on how the computer is set up, you either type in user:System, no password; or you select the System icon next to all the other accounts. Its only there in safe mode.

In here, you have unrestricted access to everything, more privileges than an admin account.
Go into control panel, reset your password, then change your sisters as revenge.

Well, thats the XP method.
Try it, and if it doesn't work, someone who knows how to use Vista can post its way.

It may be F2 or F12.

I suggest just downloading the free Ophcrack for Vista. As long as the password doesn't have a any symbols in it (!@#$%^&*()), it'll crack any password within a few minutes. And you can get it to crack symbol passwords too, but it costs $250 for that version.

The XP and Vista Ophcrack disks are good things to have.
