    Here goes the miracle solution, at least for me it worked. Since the Passwords in Sitebuilder are encrypted, no one can just go in and replace them.

    Here's a way of putting th root password back to 'sitebuilder' .

    Login to mysql.
    Use sitebuilder;
    UPDATE sb_users SET pswd='35cafb7a7a7ea2ff' WHERE login='root';

    Hope this helps.

    Best Regard's

    and what this password will be?

    also what about the windows monster?

    The password is exactly the one stated 'sitebuilder' wich is the default password when you finish the installation.

    I think that for windows, it should be the same thing. You just have to go into command line in Windows and use the same Query within mysql. You may also use one of those Desktop softwares locally to connect to the Mysql and perform the changes.

    In case someone else has this issue in the future, we got the following from Plesk that worked for us, as the previous mysql command didn't work for us.
    mysql> use sitebuilder;
    mysql> UPDATE sb_users SET pswd=password('sitebuilder') WHERE 
    mysql> login='root';
