What to do ,can't log on password required


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.

Blue screen error


The most frustrating blue screen computer errors are basically caused by some physical faults such as faulty memory, power supplies, overheating of PC components, or hardware running beyond its limits, device driver conflicts etc.
If you see the blue screen and halts occur in boot process, and also notice some specific error message appear on your screen, this indicates a serious issues most probably due to inappropriate device driver or firmware .Blue screen is really an annoying issue and creates a lot of trouble to the end user.
Follow these steps to fix a Blue Screen in Safe Mode
Once booting start, select "Safe Mode" from the boot menu.
Scan your hard drive by running your antivirus software . If the program locates an infection, move it to your vault or follow the on-screen instructions. After program completion, if a virus was removed, attempt to reboot your computer and see if this clears up the problem. If not, restart your computer in safe mode.
Restore your computer to a previous point. Click on the "Start" button. Select "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" and finally "System Restore". Choose a restore point on or before the last day your computer worked without error. Finally Reboot your computer to see if it loads correctly.

I have problem when i start my pc a error message appeared rcint failure string table id not found 42 at line 462


This problem usually occur due to soft booting the machine (reset) and then it could not restart. Usually after the xp logo screen u can only got the parser message: string table not found '42' at line 462. (which is a registery sincronization error (r,sint)). Click the ok button many times and your machine will boot up. Then go to control panel, user accounts, create new account. soft boot your machine again log onto new account and delete all files found in file search with stylexp and tgtsoft in them. Tthen log off and restart and log on as usual user (p.s. administrater privalidges required on both) and delete the new logon account. Hope this will fix the problem, otherwise you have to format your hard disc and reinstall your OS.

ADMINISTRATOR account disabled


Boot your computer into Safe Mode. It sometimes varies, but the typical way on most WinXP

based machines is to strike the F8 key during P.O.S.T. Once the drivers load you need to

access the Command Prompt. START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / COMMAND

PROMPT. A new window will appear.

At command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts application.

On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be
logged on each time you start your computer.

I have forgeted my windows xp Login Password, How I can remove my password without any loss. please send me solotion.


With the rapid spread of the Internet, people's personal info on PC has been badly threatened. So, as a PC user, it is necessary to hand some common senses like setting OS password and revoking login info so on. Followings are some common senses about how to setting login info and how to revoke login info when you have forgot your user ID or password.
Setting password:If you have the user password to login to the local windows xp or nt computer, you computer will be protected by the login info which is only known by you, so that any other can not login to you PC without your promise. Well, then, how to set a login account? There are just several steps:
Step one: Open the "Control Panel"
Step two: Click the "User Account "
Step three: Click set up a new account on the User Account windows and then input a user name that you must remember it. Click "next" and select "Computer Administrator" option, then set up a account. In this way, you have a user name. From step four, you start to set up a password.
Step four: Following above steps, clicking "changing Account " and "set up password", then fill out the form as listed. Click "Create Password".

If you have known how to set a account, it will be ease for you to change account info. Likewise, just a few steps, you can change or delete login info.

In fact, there are some convenience ways to help us to be far from that nightmare, as long as you paste "windows password", "xp password", "administrator password", "vista password", "windows xp password", "forgot windows password", "windows administrator password", "windows password recovery", "windows password reset", "windows password unlocker", ect to google, there would be many related results.

Administrator Password


you may be able to get in with the default administrator account.
when you get to the welcome screen, press control/alt/del together.
this will open up a dialog box where you can type in user names/passwords.
There are two accounts you can try here:
try the Administrator account and the Guest account. Try them both with no passwords and try the administrator one with the same password your account had.
You can also type into this box to verify your keyboard is working properly (caps lock off, all keys working, etc).
Finally, if none of this works, try booting in to safe mode and logging in through there.

If worse comes to worse, there are a couple of free programs you can install on a cd and upon boot they will reset the administrator password.
