If you can remember the password to your Administrator account then load the computer up into safe mode:
To get in safe mode-
Turn On your computer. The first screen will be the memory test or the BIOS logo is displayed. After the page finishes, you'll see the Startup options listed. Select the Operating System which you want to start, and Press F8 key Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, scroll to and select the Safe mode menu item, and then press Enter.

Once you're in safe mode, log onto the Admins account (it should be then listed if not don't worry) - if you can get on then just create a new Windows account with Administrator privileges if you can't, read on..

Another way is to do a System Restore to before you made an account on Windows, then make another IF NONE OF THIS WORKS, Ophcrack is your best bet, follow the instructions when you search it up.

Reformat your computer if all hope is lost.

Forgot password for widows 10


If you have forgot your windows 10 password it can only be easily resolved if you used your microsoft account as a username : In this case you have to use an alternate device to go on the microsoft website and go under accounts and forget my password as they then will email you steps to reset the password . If you had used as we call a guest username you are going to be forced to reinstall your windows operating system software

Forgot Windows Password - How to Reset the Password without Admin Rights?


<span style="font-weight: bold;">Problem:</span> "<a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/forgot-windows-password.html">Forgot Windows password</a>? How I can reset it without admin rights? On my Windows 7 machine, I created 2 accounts. One is an account with admin rights, and the other one is a limited account (standard user account). Now Windows is not recognizing my password for the administrator account. Can I reset the administrator password via the standard user account? Or is there any other way to reset the forgotten administrator account password? Please note I never created a password reset disk for the administrator account."<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Solution:</span> As for the above question, the answer is no as users cannot reset another account password via a standard user account. In my opinion, the most effective and simple approach case is to use a powerful Windows password recovery tool like Windows Login Recovery. With this password recovery tool at hand, you easily reset administrator, standard user and guest passwords by yourself if you forgot Windows password. Besides, it is very safe; no data will be lost after <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-password.html">Windows password reset</a>.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">How to reset forgotten Windows password?</span><br /><br />If you decide to use Windows Login Recovery when you forgot Windows password, you need to find an accessible computer, download and install the program in it. Once it is set up, run it and burn a password reset disk with a blank CD/DVD. Then you follow the instructions below to reset forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD.<br /><br />Step 1. Insert the burned CD/DVD in your locked computer.<br /><br />Step 2. Press F2, Delete or F10 to enter BIOS Setup when the computer is booting.<br /><br />Step 3. Set CD-ROM as the first boot device in BIOS.<br /><br />Note: You could click here to view how to set the first boot device in BIOS. The computer will restart automatically after saving your BIOS settings. And you'll be able to reset forgotten Windows password under DOS.<br /><br />Step 4. Enter the NO. of your Windows installation path to display all its account user names.<br /><br />Step 5. Enter the NO. of a specified User Name to remove its account password, then enter y to confirm and continue your operation.<br /><br />Step 6. Enter n to finish your operation when the selected windows account password is removed.<br /><br />Note: If you want to remove another Windows account password, please enter y. And you'll repeat the previous steps to reset another account password.<br /><br />Step 7. Remove the burned CD/DVD and press any key to restart your computer when you enter n to finish your operation.<br /><br />Now the operation is finished. Windows will not ask you to enter a password when you log on to your computer. Don't you think it is easy? Never feel frustrated when you forgot Windows password with this method.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Why cannot use standard user account?</span><br /><br />Are you confused that why you cannot reset the administrator password by using the standard user account? Well, you need to learn what a standard user account is.<br /><br />According to Microsoft, a standard user account is to let a person use most of the capabilities of the computer, but permission from an administrator is required if you want to make changes that affect other users or the security of the computer.<br /><br />When you use a standard account, you can use most programs that are installed on the computer, but you can't install or uninstall software and hardware, delete files that are required for the computer to work, or change settings on the computer that affect other users. If you're using a standard account, some programs might require you to provide an administrator password before you can perform certain tasks. So if you forgot Windows password, you could not reset the password by using a standard user account.

How do i reset my windows xp password if i have forgotten it


Forgot Windows XP password? The first thing which you check is whether you forgot windows xp login password or not. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forgot your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten Password by using "Reset Disk". If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. Or try free program called Ophcrack or Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0.

Asking for password before system. Boots


Maybe you forgot the pass or some users put pass on your system or account..You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.
The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route: Reboot Windows in Safe Mode. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2 Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Good luck!
Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.


You can reset a lost or "forgot Windows password" with 4 methods below:
1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like "Windows Password Breaker".
4. Re-install. Will lose data.
goodluck and hope this helps.pls rate ..thanks

If she has the administrator account you can delete the password for the account you forgot the password for. If you don't, you can download a software on the Internet to crack the Windows password. There are several you can use - do a Google search.
