Am forgotten with my pass word in my job site Saudi Aramco opportunity


Almost everything on a computer or on the Internet requires passwords.
If you are like most people, between home, school, work and your social networking, you have a host of passwords.
So what happens when you cannot remember your most basic passwords, such as your Windows password?
There are programs that can find passwords for you, but there is a way to find them without a program or software.

Open your computer's Start option.
Click on Accessories panel. Under this, you will see the program "Run," and click on it.
You will have a window with a typing bar that is displayed.
Write down your passwords for future reference.
Type in "cmd" in the blank, then press the Enter button.
You should then be given a screen that looks like the old Disc Operating Screens, just a blank screen with information.
You will see the words "Account information."
Type "netuser/user" and press "Enter."
Computer passwords are a key to our computer and online privacy.
Look at the list of all your computer's programs that appear on your screen.
Pick the program that you wish to change the password for, and after that program name type in "netusername", hit space and and click "star" key.
So if you're Bob, it would read "netuserbob *".
Be sure and put in the name you use for the specific computer you are changing passwords on.
You can then create a new password that will allow you to get back into the program.
If you have forgotten more than one password, you can repeat the process for other programs.
Do not exit the black screen but simply go back to the other program's names and repeat the same process with "netusername *",
Enter, and new password.

Forgot Windows Password - How to Reset the Password without Admin Rights?


<span style="font-weight: bold;">Problem:</span> "<a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/forgot-windows-password.html">Forgot Windows password</a>? How I can reset it without admin rights? On my Windows 7 machine, I created 2 accounts. One is an account with admin rights, and the other one is a limited account (standard user account). Now Windows is not recognizing my password for the administrator account. Can I reset the administrator password via the standard user account? Or is there any other way to reset the forgotten administrator account password? Please note I never created a password reset disk for the administrator account."<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Solution:</span> As for the above question, the answer is no as users cannot reset another account password via a standard user account. In my opinion, the most effective and simple approach case is to use a powerful Windows password recovery tool like Windows Login Recovery. With this password recovery tool at hand, you easily reset administrator, standard user and guest passwords by yourself if you forgot Windows password. Besides, it is very safe; no data will be lost after <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-password.html">Windows password reset</a>.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">How to reset forgotten Windows password?</span><br /><br />If you decide to use Windows Login Recovery when you forgot Windows password, you need to find an accessible computer, download and install the program in it. Once it is set up, run it and burn a password reset disk with a blank CD/DVD. Then you follow the instructions below to reset forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD.<br /><br />Step 1. Insert the burned CD/DVD in your locked computer.<br /><br />Step 2. Press F2, Delete or F10 to enter BIOS Setup when the computer is booting.<br /><br />Step 3. Set CD-ROM as the first boot device in BIOS.<br /><br />Note: You could click here to view how to set the first boot device in BIOS. The computer will restart automatically after saving your BIOS settings. And you'll be able to reset forgotten Windows password under DOS.<br /><br />Step 4. Enter the NO. of your Windows installation path to display all its account user names.<br /><br />Step 5. Enter the NO. of a specified User Name to remove its account password, then enter y to confirm and continue your operation.<br /><br />Step 6. Enter n to finish your operation when the selected windows account password is removed.<br /><br />Note: If you want to remove another Windows account password, please enter y. And you'll repeat the previous steps to reset another account password.<br /><br />Step 7. Remove the burned CD/DVD and press any key to restart your computer when you enter n to finish your operation.<br /><br />Now the operation is finished. Windows will not ask you to enter a password when you log on to your computer. Don't you think it is easy? Never feel frustrated when you forgot Windows password with this method.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Why cannot use standard user account?</span><br /><br />Are you confused that why you cannot reset the administrator password by using the standard user account? Well, you need to learn what a standard user account is.<br /><br />According to Microsoft, a standard user account is to let a person use most of the capabilities of the computer, but permission from an administrator is required if you want to make changes that affect other users or the security of the computer.<br /><br />When you use a standard account, you can use most programs that are installed on the computer, but you can't install or uninstall software and hardware, delete files that are required for the computer to work, or change settings on the computer that affect other users. If you're using a standard account, some programs might require you to provide an administrator password before you can perform certain tasks. So if you forgot Windows password, you could not reset the password by using a standard user account.
