How to hack admin password from guest in xp?


Nope. Must be an admin.
Lost Windows password:




  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

There is a free boot CD called Hirens.

How to enable the hidden Administrator account in Windows 7 and Windows Vista


Unlike Windows XP the administrator account is disabled by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Many people prefer to have the amin account open just in case they forget their main account password or to alocate admin rights over another user account like your childrens for example.

In the tip I am going to tell you how to enable the admistrator account so it is visible on the Welcome Screen.

These step only apply to Windows 7 and Windows Vista accounts that have admin rights, they won't work on an account which is limited or which is a guest account.


1. Click on the Start Menu.
2. Click on All Programs.
3. Click on Accessories.
4. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. An Adminstarator Command prompt window will open.
5. In the command window type "net user adminstrator /active:yes" or "net user adminstrator active:yes"(with out the quotation marks)
6. to disable the admin account type in the command window "net user adminstrator /active:no" or "net user adminstrator active:no" (without the quotation marks)
7. Close the command window.
8. Log out of your account.

When you have logged out of your account you will see the Administrator account on the Welcome Screen.
If you don't see the admin account straight away all you have to do is restart your computer.

That should be it.

How to login xp after deleting a administrator accounts


Try logging in as Guest,or guest,no password.
Then go to Control Panel-User Accounts-New User and re-establish an Administrator User and account settings for it.
Make whatever User accounts you'll need,and then delete the guest account.It's a security hole.
If this helps,please rate my post.
Thanks

Problem


It is a simple matter to add an administrator account to your computer provided you are already logged in as an administrator. If you are logged in as an account created as "limited",as many guest accounts are, you do not have the authority to create an administrator account.Provided you are already an administrator and only want to add a new account follow these steps. From the start button, go to control panel, then user accounts. Click on add account, create a name, click on administrator and just follow the prompts.

I forgot my Administrator Password


If you have the Administrator user password. Try logging in with it and reset your user password.

If you dont, that's a big problem.

The only solution is that to remove the hard disk for that machine and connect it to another machine with administrator privilages. Guest user will not be able to access the files.

You need to backup all your data to another PC. Format and install a clean windows installation. Move your data back to your original PC.

There is no way to hack around the forgotten password.
