Enable Built-in Administrator Account
First you'll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode byright-clicking and choosing "Run as administrator" (or use theCtrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)


Now type the following command:
net user administrator /active:yes

You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Logout, and you'll now see the Administrator account as a choice.

You'll note that there's no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should change the password.

    When you get the user log in on Vista, hold the key combination at the same time.

    If the account is not enabled then you will need to enable it , by doing the following:

    1. Go to your Start menu and right-click on the “My Computer” icon.

    2. Choosing “Manage” from the list will prompt a User Account Control (UAC).

    3. When you are done, the “Computer Management console” will
    appear. Expand the “Local Users and Groups” option with the use of the
    arrow next to it and choose “Users” folder.

    4. You can now select the “Administrator Account” and go to the “Actions” panel to open “More Actions”.

    5. Choose “Properties” to open the “Administrator Properties” dialog box and uncheck the option labeled “Account is Disabled”.

    6. When done, click “OK” to confirm changes.

    7. The Administrator account should now be present on your log in screen.

Forgot asus laptop password Windows vista


Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget 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.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.

Cant uninstall program


Are you using Vista or Xp?

If you are using xp the solution is quite simple.

Restart your computer and when the bootup shows up press F8. Now you should get a list of options including safe mode. Select safe mode. Now when xp shows up Administrator will be a profile. Enter your administrative password and log in. Now remove the program. Then try changing your main account to a standard user and then back to an administrator.

If you are using vista i found this was a bit more difficult, for i encountered the same problem. I created a new account and called it "Amin". Make the new account an administrator. Then log in with the new account and remove the problem. Vista has too many bugs in my opinion.

Hope i could help.
