If you are just wanting tips to help you remember your password, try the following think of something truly random not country name's etc then substitue letters with certain characters ie use the "!" or "1" instead of "i" also remember that the password is case senstive. once you have come up with something sutiable just put the same password but with a different numerical character at the end or beginning every time you wish to change. (note although it makes things really easy if you keep the password the same for all of your applications, it's not good practice to do so!)

to just reset your password numerous applications are able to do just that. the only drawback is if EFS (encrypted file system) has been enabled on the xp system in question, if it has been unless you know the origional password the files that have been encrypted will remain unreadable.

one of the free apps out there can be downloaded from the link below;
http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd080526.zip

this particular one is an iso image that should be burnt onto a cd. You reboot your computer making sure that boot from cd is permitted. Then follow the prompts to reset your password.

Note from my own experience: You tend to have more sucess when changing the administrator password, if you leave it blank ie no password entered, then from the operating system change the administrator password to something appropirate. ofcourse once this has been done you then change the password of the account in question (again from the operating system) to something that you remember.

more info can be found hear, http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm#20 in fact a quick google on this subject should also provide a wealth of info.
PS you should not need to pay for the software as most of it is based on Linux.

Hello, i have my ym account cherich_20@yahoo.com but i cannot log in, i forgot the password can i track it out. my girlfriend know the password im afraid she change it so couldnt i take it back.


You will have to go to "forgot password" to reset your passwrod and enter the details it will ask of you. It may ask for date of birth, city, real name, or security questions. Also, I would recommend removing your email from your post, or you may end up getting spammed.

I forgot my pc login pass.


Hi

Don't worry my friend...I'm also quite forgetful...Try boot the computer in safe mode by pressing F8(tap repeatedly during start off immediately when its turned on)...and log onto the administrators account...From there go to control panel and select the user accounts option and change your password form there...Also create a reset disk to avoid problems later on when you next forget the password(which i trust you won't :) )

Good Luck

Password


Hi,

It is simple turn off your pc.Restart and press the F8 key repeatedly until you get a menu that has an option to go into safe mode. Select the relevant option number then press enter.
Then it wont ask you for any password,just go to control panel>user accounts>add or remove user account,here change your password or remove it. Thats it you are done,shut it down and thn restart it and at your welcome screen enter da new pass.

Goodluck,
Dont forget to rate me as fixya...
