You may have a much easier solution. Press f-8 while booting and it will give you the option of booting into safe mode. If you do so you will have a hidden administrator account appear on your monitor. It is almost never given a password, and if it is it is usually the same password you had to start with. Assuming it is named "administrator" you can also just press ctrl-alt-del at the login screen and type administrator as a user name and leave a password blank. You may also have "guest" account turned on and if you can log on with that there are a couple of security issues with that where you can get system level access. Probably the best solution though is simply to borrow a friend's computer and download any of the free programs out there that come on a bootable cd and let you read xp/vista passwords.

Dialog box asking for the password to log in but you forgot your password? as I've experienced after windows set up during installation you will be asked to enter your administrator user name and password, but if you pass this step without creating an administrative password then the windows will automatically boot straight to the desktop during normal booting up. If you don't want to format your HDD during then try this,. there is a CD I know that could help remove password or change it. The CD is called Hiren's Boot CD, it is All in one software CD. search the internet for Hiren's Boot CD download and burn to a CD or you can ask your friends if they know where to find it. When you've done bring it to you PC and boot form the CD-Rom. and you'll have options to choose from, there is pass changer, it will go in the Operating system and you'll have option to change or remove password. Just browse the options and get to know the CD. Good luck.

If that’s your only problem, then you probably have nothing to worry about. As long as you have your Windows XP CD, you can get back into your system using a simple but effective method made possible by a little known access hole in Windows XP.
This method is easy enough for newbies to follow – it doesn’t require using the Recovery Console or any complicated commands.
Here’s how with a step-by-step description of the initial Repair process included for newbie’s.
1. Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it’s assumed here that your XP CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)
2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”
3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now
5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.
6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.

It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”
Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.
7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.
8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically – you will see a progress bar stating “Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds”
9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of “pressing any key” to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.
10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.
11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.
12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you’ve made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).
13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.
I tested the above on Windows XP Pro with and without SP1 and also used this method in a real situation where someone could not remember their password and it worked like a charm to fix the problem.

After installing Ubuntu I logged out. Now is asks for a user name and passwork but I did't set any. I asked for it to automaticaly log on. How dos I fix it?


In Ubuntu 9.04 click on the main icon and select Restart.

- If Ubuntu is the only operating system on your computer you'll need to tap the ESC key as the system boots.

- If you have a
dual boot or multiple-boot system the menu should appear on its own.

- At the root level you'll get a boot menu. Select the one that says "recovery mode" and press Enter.

- Ubuntu continues to load until you reach the Recovery Menu.

- Arrow down to "

netroot

" which states Drop to root shell prompt with networking and press Enter.

- Now, at the root type "

password username

" (where username is the account whose password you want to change) and press Enter.

- You'll be prompted to

enter a new password

.

- You will not see the password or any evidence that you are typing.

- Retype the password. If both passwords match you'll have successfully reset your password.

- Press Enter to continue booting into Ubuntu.

hope it helps
