Hi

Don't worry my friend...I'm also quite forgetful...Try boot the computer in safe mode by pressing F8(tap repeatedly during start off immediately when its turned on)...and log onto the administrators account...From there go to control panel and select the user accounts option and change your password form there...Also create a reset disk to avoid problems later on when you next forget the password(which i trust you won't :) )

Good Luck

I want to hack win xp admin password by guest their is error "access is denied" i hv try safe mode its no working


While you forgot windows os password, you can enter safe mode (F8 when booting up) to recover windows password while you forgot user account password, but when you forgot admin passwords, there's no way to change it, you should use utility to recover admin password. Last week, I forgot my Windows admin password. Last, I used Windows Password Seeker to remove the Windows password successfully. It's worth an attempt.

I forgot my power on password can i reset the memory to by pass it even if its going to erase my pictures files and stuff.I just want to get back in.


if you using microsoft xp , try this :on the login screen (the one with a blue background normally )press ctrl+alt+delete , new (actually old ) style login box comes up delete the user name and write administrator and press Enter if this still doenst work try putting administrator as password too !its like a back door that any administrator uses to gain access at any time !remember that you should only do this if it is your computer ,as gaining access this way may violate other users privacy !

please rate this if found useful , many thanks it only takes 1 second

How can i get in to my windows xp i lost/forgot my password. cd-rom is not working


Install a working CD-ROM drive.
Put your Windows XP disk into the CD-ROM drive.
Boot the computer from the CD-drive.
If you are very careful, and read the installation questions carefully,
and respond accurately, you can install another copy of Windows
onto the 'C:' drive, AND CHOOSE A FOLDER NAME THAT IS *NOT* 'C:\WINDOWS'.
Eventually, you can copy all your files from your "old" MY DOCUMENTS folder to your "new" MY DOCUMENTS folder.

I lost my adminitrators password


Go to www.loginrecovery.com from a working computer and download the application on that site to a disk. You can then use that disk as a startup disk on your pc that you are locked out of to get your password.
