    Simply upload tools.php that came with vBulletin into the /install directory. Then restore administrator access.

    No you have to wait 15 minutes. You can reset your password but you must wait 15 minutes before trying to log in again. You can't log in asap because once you have gone past the limit you have no choice but to wait 15 minutes.

    You have to wait for 15 minutes before logging in.
    Are you an admin of your site? Make a change to how many times people can log in. Usually it is 5 times before having to wait for 15 minutes.

    You have to wait until the 15 minutes is up before logging in. If that still happens after the 15 minutes I think you might have a bug. Get them to check their junk mail folders

    Why don't they write down the password on a sheet of paper so that they don't have so much of a problem when logging in?
