Well you can use the admisintrator account you set up to begin with or any other account that has admin abilities to change the password.  But if you dont have that then you will have to hack the password to change it.
to do that go to source forge and download ophcrack live cd and burn it to cd.

Then boot to the cd.  (put it in the drive and rebioot then hit key when asked to boot to cd.  you may have to go into your bios and activate cd as a boot device.)
Then it will start to crack the password (I say crack for a lack of a better word)
Once its done you chould see a list of passwords found.
Write down the one you need and then reboot the computer without the cd in the drive.
Then when it asks for password use the one you wrote down and then imediately go to users and change the password to something you will remember.
hope this helps.

Hi there,
You can change your password by logging on with another account with Admin rights.
Then go to Users in Control Panel. -> Start / settings / control panel, or
Right click “This computer” and choose manage.

If this doesn’t work,

then there is quite a few excellent easy to use programs you can download.
One of the best is here:

to download the "torrent", you ned a small program, download from here:

First you download Azureus, then install it.
Then you "download" the "torrent" from thepiratebay and OPEN it. Azureus will open and the downlod begin.

When you have downloadet ERD commander 2005 then you will need to burn the disc image to a CD using software that supports burning of ISO images - download from here:
ore here:

With this disk, you just boot your system (note that the CD drive should be the first boot).

You now have full control of your computer and permition to over write the administrator password, plus a lot more :-)
Good Luck

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why not????

I forgot my password and am not sure how to reset it since I tried the usb drive and that didn't work

You can purchase a program called Winternals ERD Commander which is a boot CD that allows you to access your windows installation from this CD without running windows. You can get it on eBay for $5.99 plus shipping. Insert the disc and boot from the CD at startup. Once in the program click start>system tools> locksmith. From here you can recover or reset your windows password.

Accessing EMachines W3107 Recovery Partion

You can fix this virus without recovering.

Log in normally. Go to run, type in msconfig and go to the startup tab. Uncheck everything and reboot your pc. Once there try your internet. If it's not working go to Internet Options, Connections, Lan Settings, and uncheck anything in your proxy settings. Close IE and reopen. You should be able to connect. Then download and run Malwarebytes, and then run Bitdefender Online scanner.

The only other thing that may be trouble is that there may be a rootkit that neither scanner will detect. You can run Combofix, but this program isn't for the average user. Follow instructions carefully when using Combofix.

Forgot to save password for w3650 emachines now i am locked out

The only way I know how to reverse a password that you have forgotten on Windows Vista)

This way is to boot from the Windows Vista Home Premium DVD-ROM drive and then run the system restore utility off the disc. You can revert back to a time when you did not have the password but this will erase any programs you have installed up to the date you forgot it.
