To specify when the account expires we can use /EXPIRES switch.
To specify if the user must have a password set we can use /PASSWORDREQ switch.

System error 5 has occurred.
Access is denied.

how can i recover my administrator password on windows xp if i forgot it


You could do the following; when you boot up, the screen will tell you to press ENTER if you want to get into the operating system RESTORE MODE. When you set up your system you will have saved configuration settings, and hopefully, you would have carried out a number of saved "BackUp's" of your HardDrive as you used your computer. If you did, you can carry out a 'Go Back To A Previous Setting'. You will lose any files you created since that previous time but it does get you back into your drive. Did you not create an Administrators Password BackUp Disc? If you did use that. Good Luck. George

i have changed a new password for my administrator account and foget the password, i can only log through the user account. pls help me with steps on how to reset the password and enter new one


Do you need to reset vista or xp users password? Ihas a little trick that dig it for you from tech-hack forums. The method is very easy to follow and doesn't require any complicated commands. The method is free to use and you don't need to pay hundreds of dollars for some utility for unlocking lost windows passwords. Just follow next simple steps:
First thing you need to do is to start command prompt or CMD. There is two ways to do that:
Press F8 when Windows XP start up (before windows xp logo - progress bar for loading) and choose "Save Mode Command prompt" option
If you are logged in: click on start -> Run, type "cmd" and press ENTER.
In command prompt window type command "net user" or "net users". You will see the list of users that are created on current running OS.
Type "net user" "user name" "*". You will see that windows will ask you to enter new password for that particular user account! No super user privileges needed. Just type new password two times and you are done.
Example of process: If the administrator username is "administrator" then command for changing its password will be: "net user administrator *".
Note: quotes (") in the post are just for highlighting the word.
