Losing your Windows password can be one of the most frustrating experiences you encounter. With so many passwords to remember, it's a miracle our brains don't crash or need to be frequently defragmented. Fortunately, we aren't so hopeless and neither is losing your Windows password. Retrieving a lost Windows password is as simple as following a few easy steps.
----->**this process only works for windows xp , please state if you have another operating system installed*
Step1 Put your Windows XP operating system CD into your CD-Rom drive and start your computer.
Step2Choose the specified key to run from the CD. In most cases, a message will appear which instructs you to "Press any key to boot from CD." Step3Wait for Setup to check your system and load the appropriate files. A message will appear indicating this action. Step4Press "Enter" to setup Windows. Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement, then choose the "Repair" option on the Setup screen. Step5Allow the Repair function to complete its process. It may takes a few minutes for Setup to copy all of your files. Wait for the computer to reboot. Usually a message appears indicating that the computer will reboot in 10 to 15 seconds. Refrain from pressing any keys after the computer starts again. The computer will reboot automatically. Step6Watch the bottom left corner of your screen for the "Installing Devices" message. Press "Shift + F10" when you see this. A command console will appear allowing for access to a number of system functions. Step7Type "NUSRMGR.CPL" and press "Enter" after the prompt. This will give you graphical access to the User Accounts in your Control Panel. Step8Select the account that needs to be changed and alter your password or remove it altogether. Type "control userpasswords2" if you want to log on without using a password. Close the windows and exit the command console. Enter your Product ID when prompted. Step9Log on to your system according to the new password option you chose in Step 8. This process does not damage your previously saved files and settings, so they should still be intact.

I can't log in my Facebook account

Point your web browser at Welcome to Facebook Log In Sign Up or Learn More

If another account comes up, log out of it by clicking the down-pointing triangle in the upper-right then clicking "Log Out."

If you then still can't log in to your account, click the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the password box on the login page.

If you're getting an error message, what does it say?
