What program are you using?

If you are using the Windows Vista default parental admin, it is asking for the password of an admin on the PC. This shows up because you do not have administrative privileges on your PC to change the parental settings.

My son has a laptop and i forgot my parental control password and i need to rester it..can you help?


Windows XP/Reset Parental Control
If you mean the Content Advisor that MS built into IE, do this:-
Click on START - RUN and type in REGEDIT, click OK
then the Registry Editor Opens,
Search on the left pane for the following key:-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current_Version\Policies\Ratings

Delete an Entry named "Key" there and your parental Control is disabled..

Restart the computer and run Internet Explorer again.
Choose View and then Internet Options,
Click on the Content tab and click on Disable. When asked for a password, don't enter anything; just click on OK. This will disable Content Advisor because there's no longer a password.

You can use automatic logon to log on to your Windows 7
without having to type a user name or password.
(With automatic logon you will not see this anymore)

Configure Windows 7 to auto logon a specific user:

1. Open the Start Menu>All programs>Accessories>Run
(When you open this copy it) control userpasswords2
click the OK button.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password
hope this helps

Boot your computer into Safe Mode. It sometimes varies, but the typical way on most WinXP

based machines is to strike the F8 key during P.O.S.T. Once the drivers load you need to

access the Command Prompt. START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / COMMAND

PROMPT. A new window will appear.

At command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts application.

On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be
logged on each time you start your computer.

This is also an opportunity to set a new Administrator password.

Unaccessible pcs due to lost user codes


First try holding the keys Ctrl, Alt and Delete at the same time for three times when computer is on login screen at startup.
This will open a box asking for user ID and password.
In user put 'Administrator', and leave the password blank.

If this does not work, then reinstall Windows, after reinstalling Windows you will be asked to enter new user names.
