Forgot admin password to my system.

Can't get into my admin user acct. Can get into my son's, but have parental control on it, so when I try to do my things in his account, asks for my password. So basically can't use either account.

Emergency Boot CD is a download you can find many places. Burn to CD and then boot off of CD, it has an option to change user passwords, including Administrator.
Here is a link to download

It is FREEWARE meaning you can use all you want and never have to pay.
I actually used the Admin reset functionality. I fix computers for my church, and whoever used the computer last put a admin password on it and then left the church. I was able to reset and get back to a working computer without any problems. Works great.

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.

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.

Parent forgot password on vista and only have access on limited account


Officially, there is no known way to retrieve an administrator password on vista, except by using the "forget password" feature when you are at the Login screen, and hope you remember the password reminder.

unofficially, however, there are plenty of tools out there that will do the trick as well, as long as you know the risks that are involved. you can do a google search for them. They can be dangerous to use, and in some cases, illegal to use depending on the country you hail from, so make sure you do your research, are comfortable with the possibility that you might damage or lock yourself out of your operating system with some of them, and that your country's laws allow the usage of them. (you have been warned :~))
