Lost administration rights


What operating system are you using? If you are using windows 7 you can try.
1. Start computer and then press "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" twice at Windows Login Screen.
2. Type "Administrator" without quotations in the username box and leave password box blank. Then hit "Enter" to log onto Windows system.
3. Go to "Start->Control Panel->User Accounts" to unlock the forgotten Windows 7 password.
This will work if there has been no changes to the default settings of windows 7. It is the same for windows XP

Remove User Accounts from the Login Screen in Windows XP
So you login to your computer every single day, but there’s morethan one account to choose from… either because you got the computerfrom somebody else, or some software package added a user account thatyou really don’t want to see. So how do we hide that other account fromthe login screen?
There’s a simple registry that you can do to hide accounts fromthe login screen, or you could alternatively delete the user account ifyou really don’t need it. Both methods are listed below.

Open up regedit.exe through the start menu Run box, and then navigate down to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NT
CurrentVersionWinlogonSpecialAccountsUserList
On the right-hand side you’ll see a list of keys that correspond touser accounts that are considered “Special” and are not to be shown onthe login screen

Create a new DWORD value with the same name as the user name thatyou want to hide. You’ll note that the actual username in theillustration was “OtherPerson” and not the description that was shownon the login screen.
To unhide the account, simply delete the registry key that you created.

The next time you log off you’ll see that the other account is gone.
Hide User Account with Tweak UI
You can also use the Microsoft Tweak UI PowerToy to do the same thing. (Thanks to Gustav for reminding me to include this)

Just click on the Logon key in the left hand side, and then uncheck the box for “Show <username> on Welcome screen”
Login to Hidden Account
You can still login to the account even though it’s not shown… You’ll just have to use a little trick.
At the login screen, just hit the Ctrl+Alt+Delete combination twicein a row, and you’ll be presented with the old-school login screen,where you have to manually enter the username.

Type the name and password of the other user, and login.
Delete User Account
Alternatively you can always delete the user account if you areabsolutely sure that you don’t need that user account anymore.Right-click on “My Computer” and choose “Manage”

Navigate down through “Local Users and Groups” and then Users, and thenlocate the username in the list that you’d like to get rid of.

Just right-click and choose Delete. Note that this step cannot bereversed, so make sure you only delete accounts you really really don’twant anymore. If you are unsure, you can just hide them using the firstoption above.

I can't log in to my account on my Dell PC?


Now which operating system are you running ?

Forgetting your Windows XP login details might at first seem like a disaster. Don't panic though; your login password and username are easily recovered by changing the login details to that of the administrator.

Begin with your computer turned off, and then turn it on. You will need to log in to your computer manually and this can only be done in the load-up screens. Wait until your computer reaches the Windows login screen. The screen usually displays a "Welcome" message. Press and hold the "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Delete" keys two times at the Windows login screen. Your computer will automatically reveal a Classic Login box. Type "Administrator" (without quote marks) into the "Username" field and leave the "Password" field blank. Windows automatically creates an Administrator account when your computer is first booted up; in this account you can alter or change any user's login details. Navigate through the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel." In the Control Panel explorer, double-click on the "User Accounts" icon to open a new window. Select "Change an Account" in the User Accounts window and select the username you want to alter. From here you can edit the user's name and password, but you can also alter the user's picture, account type and .NET password. Restart your computer to login with your new username and password.

How will I delete or reset the Windows Administrator password I registered fro my Samsung R439 laptop which runs on Windows 7 Starter OS?


Dear Pimtosky, only an administrator is allowed to change / reset the password.
- You can use the system default login because the default login password will be always '0000' (hour zeros without quotes) OR it will be blank (no password).

- I will explain how to go to the default login screen,
- Start the system and when the welcome screen comes (or login screen) press ctrl + alt + Del keys more than one time until you see the classic login small window.
- Now type ' Administrator "' ( without quotes)
- In the password box type ' 0000 ' click enter (If this does not work try the next step below)
- Leave the password box blank (empty) and click enter
Now you will be able to login to your system,
- Now your can change your windows administrator password by going to control panel > User Accounts > change password.

If you are still confused you can use any free 'windows password recovery' software. Download it and follow the 'how to' instructions.

Good Luck.

Power on pc->immediately start tapping the F8 key on keyboard->select safe mode->press enter->login as administrator(password might be blank, u can give it a try).If successful u would be on a desktop screen with safe mode on all four corners.Now go to start->control panel->useraccounts->select ur son's account and remove the password.This is worth a try.If it doesnt work the only option is to reinstall the windows(if u cant remember the pwd for your son's login)
