Your best bet with a password reset is linux knoppix. Just search online for ways to use it with a different computer and get a copy on the cd.

When i try to log-on i put my pasword into the box and says "the user Profile Service service failed the log-on.User profile cannot be loaded. what do i do


To resolve this problem open yourself, follow these steps:

Right click Computer > Properties > Advanced system settings > Advanced tab > Under User Profiles, click Settings > In the User Profiles dialog box, select the profile that you want to delete > click Delete > Apply/OK.

Next open regedit and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

Right-click the SID that you want to remove, and then click Delete.

Log on to the computer and create a new profile.

Alternatively, you can simply download and use this Fix It 50446 from Microsoft given on KB947215.

You may also want to check out ReProfiler. It is a freeware tool for manipulating user profiles on Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, Server 2003 & Server 2008.

Forgot my NB305 pass word how do I unlock it to reset it to a new one


If you want to unlock the BIOS password, read here http://www.fixya.com/support/r7229632-reset_or_remove_bios_password

If you want to unlock Windows password and you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account in Control Panel, User Accounts. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

How do i get passed my hdd user password i forgot the password


A couple of days ago, I lost my windows vista admin password. I solved the problem with the help of Windows Password Seeker. Not just support XP/Vista/2000/NT, but also compatible with windows 7, I tested it on my computer installed with Windows 7 and remove the local user and admin accounts password successfully. It's worth trying. You can download it from: http://www.passwordseeker.com/howtouse.html

My sons friend put a pass word on his lap top user password but for got it can some one help me remove it is on a toshiba satellite pro vista thanks


Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it?ll show Classic Login box. Now type ?Administrator? (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from ?Control Panel -> User Accounts?.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

if you are locked out of your computer,then a password recovery utility is available for you
check this out:see how to recover lost password?

Forgot password


Hi Laurence,

Try going to safe mode by tapping F8 on startup.
login with the admin account. By default the password is blank so you should be able to login.

Now go to control panel > user accounts > select your account and click change password or delete password.
else create a new profile.

If you are unable to login with the admin as well then you you

that should fix it..

Password


You can reset passwords by using this utility. If you read the instructions provided on the page, it shouldn't be too hard. Just download the cd-image (on another computer), from the bottom of the page and burn it to a cd. Reboot your computer, with the cd in the drive and the BIOS set to boot from cd.

Good Luck,
Please post some feedback
