SOURCE: I need to get into a computer I own, but I forgot the password.

Before the burn of the CD, look for an option that states Bootable CD. You have to make the CD bootable. You might also look on the internet for the term LIVE CD.

SOURCE: reset password with out a reset disk

The following link will take you to a cd image to make a bootable CD which when run loads a linux based utility that allows you to reset any local user passwords.

http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd080802.zip

I have used this when the local admin account has been disabled as well on a PC. I have found it best to set the password to be blank rather than using it to define a known password. Once ou are in windows you can then create your own User account and then delete the one on it.

Also try pressing Control + Alt + Delete twice and see if it drops back to the classic login screen and change the user to Administrator with no password.

SOURCE: I have not used this desktop for over a year. Now I am unable to remember my password to log-on to the computer. Even with the hint, I can't get it right.

you can search for a password boot disk which will disable the administrator password.
There are dozens of these types of programs but one program I recommend is windows password reset 6.0
http://www.resetwindowspassword.com
Download the iso file and burn it to a disk to create the boot disk, that simple.
Configure your pc or laptop to boot in the cd drive,
insert the CD and it would boot then just disable the password and restart.
Took about 5 minutes for the whole process.

SOURCE: Forgot sign in password

If you could sign in your computer from a restart with a list of users on the screen, those users might not with a password. So you can try sign in with any of those user name you ever saw and without password. If the account you sign in with is with the administrative permission, you will be able to reset the password of any user accounts on your computer. (I will give you all the detailed steps with a Microsoft document linked below.) If your computer is connected to a network, you can try to login with the accounts with the administrator's permissions on the network and reset any password of any user accounts on your computer. They might be assigned the administrator's rights on your computer too.
If all the user accounts are not good for the login on your computer or without administrator's permission, you can reset the password still if you have created a password reset disk.
If those two approaches do not work, you might need to reinstall Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 on your computer and all the applications.

The detailed steps are described by the following document.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305

If you like to backup your data before reinstallation to make sure your data will be safe, you can move the hard disk to another computer and copy your data over. Please don't hesitate to turn to me if any questions.

Tip

How to Recover Passwords Using Ophcrack LiveCD


1. Download Ophcrack LiveCD
2. Burn to a CD
3.Boot from Ophcrack LiveCD
4. Ophcrack will attempt to recover the passwords for all of the user accounts that it can find on your computer. This password cracking process is completely automated. The important things to look for here are the accounts listed in the User column and the passwords listed in the NT Pwd column. If the user account you're looking for isn't listed, Ophcrack didn't find that user on your computer. If the NT Pwd field is blank for a particular user, the password has not been recovered yet.
As you can see in the example above, the passwords for the Administrator and Guest accounts are listed as empty. If you were cracking a password for a user that Ophcrack shows as empty, you now know that you can log on to the account without a password at all, assuming that the user account is enabled.
Look toward the bottom of the user list - see the Tim user account? In under one minute, Ophcrack recovered the password to this account - applesauce. You can ignore any other accounts you're not interested in recovering the passwords for.
After Ophcrack recovers your password, write it down, remove the Ophcrack LiveCD disc from your optical drive and restart your computer. You don't need to exit the Ophcrack software - it won't harm your computer to power it off or restart it while it's running.
In the next step, you'll finally get to log on to Windows with your new password!
Note: If you do not remove the Ophcrack LiveCD disc before you restart, your computer will likely boot from the Ophcrack disc instead of your hard drive.
. ow that your password has been recovered using Ophcrack LiveCD, simply enter your password when prompted after booting your computer normally.
To avoid needing to hack your own password again someday, I recommend creating a password reset disk. As long as you can keep the disk safe and also avoid losing it, you'll be protected from any future forgetfulness when it comes to your Windows password:

I forgot my passsword to my computer


Goto here and read about Ophcrack you don't need to get in to Windows to remove a password.

You burn Ophcrack iso to a cd and then boot from it. Read it all and you can do it yourself if you have a friend with a pc/laptop to download the iso and burn the disk.

The best program to burn it with is imgburn and it's completely free.

You simply install imgburn, start it, click Write Image File To Disk, browse to the ophcrack iso file you downloaded, put a blank CD in the drive and click the file to disk icon at the bottom to burn it.

When it's finished just put it in your laptop drive and boot from it.

I lost my password my screen is locked how can I reset or bypass?


This is about topic bypass Windows logon screen. Command Prompt or recovery utility is effective ways for reset or bypass lost Windows password.

First, run command prompt with administrator. And you can reset Windows lost password with this command. Net user <new user> <new password>

Second, take recovery utility to burn a password reset disk. And this reset disk is the key to remove or reset Windows password, applied for standard or admin account. When your computer is installed with Windows 8/7/Vista, forgotten user password would be removed. If it is Windows server 2012/2008 etc, password would be reset as "iSunshare@2012".

My daughter has put a password on her account and set it up as admin account, but has forgotten the password, how to we change password???


Hi zbarratt,
(I'm assuming that you're problem is in your computer/laptop) All you can do now is to reset the c-mos to erase the password. You have to pull-out the internal battery of the c-mos. This is like the watch battery. Leave 5 mins then re-insert. Power on the PC and you can access it again...
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

I forgot my username on my hp mini and there is no disk or anywhere to insert a disc on my hp what do I do?


Hello,
If you are running Windows on your HP Mini, you can use OphCrack to recover your username (and password for that matter). Since you don't have a CD-Rom drive in the HP Mini, you will have to use a bootable USB stick.

Link to OphCrack

The instructions to create a bootable live USB version of OphCrack from OphCrack Wiki:
On Windows:
1. Download the ISO file of the ophcrack LiveCD
2. Download tazusb (Slitaz installer) from our website
3. Connect your USB stick to your machine
4. Launch tazusb.exe and follow the instructions

Once you have your bootable USB stick, insert it in to your computer and during the bootup process, press the corresponding button to see your Boot Options/Boot Menu and choose the USB stick.

OphCrack will run and show you your stored username and passwords.

Please let me know if I can further assist you.

Regards,
KYTechnology

Please click the following Link.You will be directed to a website of a free software called "OrphCrack" this is an excellent software for password recovery.

http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/#livecd

If your brother's operating system is XP or Vista. On a separate computer download "Ophcrack Live CD" XP or Vista which I do know, then burn (The iso image) it on a CD. Insert the CD in your brothers computer. boot from the CD and you will be able to recover the password in no time.
