User id &pass word forgotten. pl. help find proforma for changed one.sitaramchaturvedi09@gmail.com


For that you require either the live win xp or admin password cracker software.

admin password cracker works on dos and and it will detect your user name and can remove your password.

If u have live win xp cd then boot with it and change the password.

Forgot admin. passsword


Dear Tured:
If you set the password for windows please try the steps below if it is bios password you need to contact your computer manufacturer
  1. Reboot your machine.
  2. Press F8 before the Windows boot screen appears.
  3. You will be be prompted with a boot options menu.
  4. Select the Start Windows in Safe Mode option.
  5. Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.
  6. Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.
  7. Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
    • The Safe Mode Welcome screen might display some of the other users on your system.
  8. Login as the admin.
  9. Press Yes at the prompt asking if you would like to continue using Safe Mode.
  10. Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
  11. Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (i.e. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.
  12. Login as the user for which you set the password.
