How do I reset the password on the windows 7 home page


Windows has a built-in security system that requires a user to type in a password to get to his personal account.
Only an "Administrator" account holder can make software changes to the computer.
All other users, including Guest users, need the permission of an Administrator to make any system changes.
However, if you have a guest account and need to access the Administrator account to make changes, you can do so via the Command Prompt feature.
Log in to your Guest account in Windows.
Go to "Start" > "Search" and type in "windows/system32/cmd.exe" to find the Command Prompt feature.
When the file appears on the search menu, drag it to your desktop.
Leave the search window open.

Right-click the cmd.exe file on your desktop and choose "Rename."
Type "sethc.exe" for the new name and click on an empty area next to the file name to save the new name.
Right-click on the "sethc.exe" file and click on "Copy."
Go back to the open "windows/system32" folder and right-click anywhere in the folder.
Select "Paste" to put the "sethc.exe" file inside.
Choose "Yes" when asked if you want to overwrite the current file.
Go to "Start" > "Log Off." It will bring you back to the User Account menu.
Press the "Shift" key 5 times in a row.
The Command Prompt will open.
Type "net user administrator [password]" and insert a new password in the [password] section.
Press "Enter" to set your new password.
It will bring you back to the User Accounts menu.
Click on the Administrator User Account and type the password you just set to log in to the account.

Forgot my administrator password for windows xp


1.you can go into safe mode (F8 at logo when booting up) and enter as administrator and then go to accounts and change windows password and that's with XP. I haven't forgotten password for a pc before but can enter any XP pc in safe if the owner hasn't gone into safe mode and designated a password for "administrator" and usually only have a password for the user account but never have tried on Vista or Win7.
2.if that does not work,you can use software to reset the windows password I know a windows password tool just like below Windows Password Key 8.0 http://www.lostwindowspassword.com

Administrator root password


You can remove the passwor and get into it...You can remove that password by the following few steps...

1. Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it’s assumed here that your XP CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)
2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”
3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now
5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.
6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.

It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”
Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.
7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.
8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically – you will see a progress bar stating “Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds”
9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of “pressing any key” to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.
10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.
11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.
12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you’ve made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).
13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.

Hope this will help you...Thank you...

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.

Foget password


Hi,

I am assuming that you are referring to your Windows login password... if not please give more details.
==================================

There are many password recovery utilities on the net, using dictionary based cracking algorithms. Some of the more expensive ones also use an inverse lookup database for the
password hash-file entries.

One of the best was a free or nearly free program made by a company called SysInternals run by Mark Russinovich. Unfortunately Mark Russinovich was hired by Microsoft, and his new website, now called winternals no longer offers this utility. You can probably still find it on the NET if you google it.

Also:

Do you have another account on this computer, such as the main administrator account. IF you do you can log into it, and reset/change your own password. If your computer comes up with a bunch of login icons, and the master administrator account is not listed, press Ctr-Alt-Del twice in a row at the login screen, and then enter the user ID and password for the main administrator account:

User name: Administrator
Password : ..........

If your computer came with windows pre-installed,
than the vendor should know the administrator account
password.

Please note that although the administrator account CANNOT
be deleted from windows, it can be RENAMED in the local
policy settings, and the vendor of your computer may have
done this.

Also you can plug your hard drive into another computer, and treat is as a data drive. You can then recover all your important files, providing you did not deliberately encrypt them using the
NTFS encryption utility. (Encryption is OFF by default)

Once you recover all your files, put the hard-drive back,
and re-install windows. This is guaranteed to work but
it can take a long time, depending on how many application
programs you have to re-install if you do re-install Windows.

Hope this helps, Martin


PS
Next time write down your password in a safe place, despite
of what common wisdom (or Microsoft) tells you. Given the
blinding speed of modern computers, and the parallel power of
internet computing NO password is safe from the experienced hacker or government agency, anyway. Any password that
can be remembered by humans, is definitely not safe against
a brute force (BFI) attack.

So:
Create very long and random password, full of mixed case
letters, numbers and weird characters, and then write it down
and keep copies in many safe places. Never use the same password for two unrelated purposes.
