You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/

Retrieving administrator settings


Click start Control Panel.


Select "User Accounts and Family Safety," then "User Accounts."


Click "Turn User Account Control on or off."


Remove the check mark next to "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer."


Click "OK."

Set All Accounts to Administrator


Still in the UAC section of Control Panel, select "Manage another account," and click on a user account.


Click on "Change the account type." When working with multiple accounts, some changes can only be made if you and the account holder are both logged in with "Administrator" accounts so you need to change all user accounts to "Administrator."


When you are done making changes, you can change them back to "Standard," but always leave at least one "Administrator" account.


Select the "Administrator" radio button.


Click "Change Account Type" at the bottom right.


Repeat this procedure to change each user account to "Administrator." When all user accounts have been changed, close the Control Panel.

Create a Full Administrator Account


Click "Start" (the Windows Vista icon in the lower left of your screen). In the Search box, type "cmd". Right-click on "cmd," and select "Run as Administrator." An elevated command prompt window will appear.


At the command prompt, type "net user administrator /active:yes", and press "Enter."


Choose a password and assign it to the "Administrator" account, by typing "net user administrator 'password'", where 'password' is your selected password. For instance, if your password is "abc," type "net user administrator abc". Press "Enter."


Type "exit" and press "Enter."


Log off. When you log back into your "Administrator" account, you will have full rights.


hope this helps

Have dell inspiron 9300 laptop that will not load personal settings what should i do passed hardware diagnotics using F12


Are you the Administrator of the computer? You could have a infection of many types.
If your not the Administrator. Log in safe mode.
Restart or start the computer.
As soon as it starts to boot hit the F8 key - keep hitting the key till you see Safe mode options.
Start in Safe mode with networking
Now the log in screen should show a Administrator log in that you may not have seen before.
Log in to that Administrator. Shouldn't be Password protected.
Once inside you can change your account to administrator.
Click START< >Control panel> then look for User Accounts
Look at your User account and make sure or change it to Administrator control..

Hope this helps

Hi, I can't login to my thinkpad T400 2765 R2A windows vista?


First of all try using blank (none) as password (otherwise at the log on screen hit "enter"). If this doesn't work log on at the administrator's account. To do this if you can see the administrator's icon click on it and use blank (none) for password again. If you can't see the administrator's icon, hit ctrl+atl+del TWICE and type as user "administrator", blank (none) for password and hit enter. After you log on as administrator change your user's account as you wish and you are ready to go.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

I have a HP compaq laptop and cant log on as administrator


Hi martyn,

Probably the user profile is corrupted.
Log in to any account and type cmd in the start search bar > now right click on the cmd listed and select run as administrator. Now at the command prompt type net users administrator /active

This will activate the super administrator account. Now log in with this account and make any changes as required.

Hope this helps,

My computer is refusing me as a computer administrator, although i am the only user on the computer. also the computer does not allow me to download any files or delete any either. it is a gateway mx8711


What operating system: XP or Vista?
You should be able to go into Control Panel and review what users have Administrative privileges. It is possible that you have a "hidden" admin account.
Left click on the Windows logo in the lower left corner
Left click on "Control Panel"
Double click on "Users" or "User Accounts"

There should be a list of names and user access privileges.

To change the privileges associated with names, you'll need to be logged on as an administrator. You might have to change the settings to show more log in names; or if Vista, select the little arrow next to the Padlock symbol on the power off screen and "switch user" to one of the administrator profiles.

It is good security practice to NOT always use an Administrator profile. Do maintenance as an administrator, but normal work as a Power User or other user. This reduces the likelihood of hackers or malware getting installed in your computer.
