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

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 !

Cant get passed admin password


As far as I know, You can reset windows user account password in safe mode(F8 when booting up). But if you forgot administrator password, you must reinstall windows OS or use the "Windows Password Seeker". Official site: http://www.passwordseeker.com

I cant logon into window xp home edition,and i cant remember user name and password i want to disable them all


HI there. If you forgot your username and password try login with the administrator account. Username is administrator. Usually the password is blank. After that you can reset your passwords from Control Panel, User Accounts section.

If at the logon you use the welcome screen, hit twice CTRL+ALT+DEL, after that you can type administrator in the username textbox.

Please tell me if that solution was helpfull.

I assume you have permission to remove the password. There is a program on the internet called active @ Password changer that will do the job. you can find it here http://www.password-changer.com/ but you will have to pay for it.

good luck

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.
