This solution is not an easy one as Microsoft has built in this security feature so that this password is unretrieable. The only way to restore the Operating system is to reload windows from fresh there are a lot of false programs that state they can retrieve your password but they can not. It is a high security issue that MS buil in. you will need either your recovery disk or a fresh version of windows.

Hey there,

Im assuming you have forgotten the password to your account on windows XP...right. Now follow these steps carefully and one by one.

Start the computer, once it has started (before XP has started), press F8 on your keyboard, and you should see another screen with many options on it. Select the first one which i think is Safemode

After that, you will come to the logon screen, you will see your account and administrator account. select the administrator account and you should log into this account you have never seen before. If there is a message asking you to leave administrator and go to system restore options, dont accept it.

Then go to control panel>user accounts and find your account, then simply delete the password. It shouldnt ask you for your previous password. When the password is deleted, simply restart the computer normally, and go into your logon account normally, then set a password if you want its up to you

Good luck :)

What account do you mean? Is it your windows account or an email account or a forum account?
If it is windows, what version are you using? If its email, who is the provider (Yahoo, Hotmail etc).

Thanks.

I have vista basic & need to add a password but dont know how


To put a log in password on your Vista account you have to go Start, Control Panel and then User Accounts. Click on Create a password for your account link in Make changes to your user account area. Enter the password you would like for your account and confirm it by entering the same password again. You can close User Accounts and Control Panel. Upon restart you will have to enter this password every time you log in so make sure you don't forget it.

My yahoomail account stolen by haker please help me to close this account


You can recover your password through the password recovery page but you must know the security question and essential details of your account which you enter during the time of registration.

Go here for password recovery help: https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot?login
Provide the following information that you created when first opening your account:
1. Y! ID
2. ZIP Code (for non-U.S. users, please state the name of your country)
3. Birth date
4. Alternate (non-Y! ) email address
5. Current password question and secret answer.

Without any of the above information, you won't be able to retrieve your password.

Hope this helps.

Forgot Windows Login, Windows XP


Okay, you will need to restart your computer, while it's loading BIOS tap the F8 key, that will open a menu. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Safe mode. Once safe mode has loaded there will be a login name Administrator, open that click yes, then open control panel and change your users password. Then restart. If you have any problems with these instructions please let me know, so I can attempt to make them a little clearer.

Hope this helps,

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
