Administrator password reset

I reset my administrator password, using safe mode, and now all of the users won't show up under the control panel so that I can delete some of them. What did I do wrong? Also when we power on normally, the administrator password is not on there, I have to redo it under the safe mode.

Prerequisite before you do the following :
- Go to Safe mode and assign a password to your Administrator account (don't use empty password)

  1. Since you can't seem to login in normal mode because you don't have any account shows up, boot into safe mode
  2. Login as Administrator
  3. Launch regedit
  4. Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList
  5. If there is no key named "Administrator" in it, create a new DWORD value and name it Administrator
  6. Double click Administrator and enter 1 as the value data
The next time you reboot into normal mode, Administrator account should shows up.

Tip

Try blank. here is the methods I know. The first thing which you check if...


If you have only one Admin account in Vista and have forgotten the password for the same and dont want to reinstall the operating system and land up loosing all your data, this tip is for you.

1) Restart the PC with the Vista Boot Disc.
2) Select Repair Your Computer option
3) Select the Command Prompt

Or - If you dont have a Vista Boot Disc then boot your PC to DOS using any Dos boot disk or other O/s disc.

4) goto "C:\"
5) Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 ( cd c:\windows\system32)
6) Now we will rename the utility manager to cmd.

Type the following commands,
- ren cmd.exe cmdold.exe
- ren utilman.exe cmd.exe
exit

7) we have renamed it successfully.
8) Restart the PC without the disc, reach the screen where you are asked for you password.
9) You will see a white blue icon on bottom left.
10) Click on the icon and CMD will open up, type the following command in CMD.
- net user administrator /active
exit
11) Restart the PC, and you will find you have one more administrator account
12) logon with the new account, goto user accounts and remove the password for your old account.
13) restart the PC with the Disc again, and goto the command prompt as we did in the step 1-3.
14) type the following command,
- cd c:\windows\system32
- ren cmd.exe utilman.exe
- ren cmdold.exe cmd.exe

15) restart the PC, and logon to your own account, open CMD by going from start menu.
16) type the following and restart the PC.
- net user administrator /active:no

17) restart the PC and now you only have one account and thats your own account.

Reset admin password


Right click My Computer > Manage > Local Users and Group > Users. Right click Administrator > Set Password. You must be an Administrator to do this. This can be done in User Accounts within Control Panel (Win 7). Same principle, just looks different.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lost Windows password:
  1. Log in as Administrator (try safe mode if you don't see Administrator).
  2. Login as other user (if other user is availible) and manage users. Must be an administrator. Steps noted above!
  3. Reformat computer.
  4. Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

Bought a used pc, do not have password for windows log-on. cannot get to bios, no boot up cd. what now?


Most XP machines have a built in administrator account that normally does not have a password.

You can try pressing F8 before Windows starts up to go into the XP bootup menu.

Choose Safe mode

Once into safe mode you should either see an 'Administrator' account listed, or just type in Administrator and do not type a password. If that works, go to Start-->Control Panel-->User Accounts. From there you can create a new user account for you to use with administrative privileges.

If that doesn't work, try downloading a password reset utility, such as the one at http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

Hope this helps
