Forgot admin password


Here's how to reset your password:
  1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up.
  2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
  3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
  4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
  5. All done, you have recovered the lost password
Hope you'll have it resolved soon :-)

ADMINSTRATOR PASSWORD HAVE FORGOTTEN IT AND NEED IT


Hello !

If you are truly referring to the Administrator account and not an account with Administrator privileges and added a password and have forgotten, the only alternative is to reinstall the operating system.

If you are referring to an account with Administrator privileges, access the Administrator account via Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly upon booting) and login with Administrator and no password. Go to Control Panel - User Accounts and reset the user's password.

Hope this helps.

Reset password


To reset your password you need to be able to log onto the computer to start of with.  Once you have logged in, go to the Control Panel, click on User Accounts, click on your account name and then select "Change Password" from the options available to you.  You will need to supply the old password and then enter the new password.
If you cannot get into Windows because you cannot remember the password, download Offline NT Password Editor (http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/bootdisk.html) It is a bootable CD which will reset the password to any user account to blank.
