Reboot your machine.

Press F8 before the Windows boot screen appears.

You will be be prompted with a boot options menu.

Select the Start Windows in Safe Mode option.

Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.

Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.

The Safe Mode Welcome screen might display some of the other users on your system.

Login as the admin.

Press Yes at the prompt asking if you would like to continue using Safe Mode.

Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.

Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (i.e. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.

Login as the user for which you set the password.

How to Recover Windows 7 Administrator Password


Microsoft Windows 7 is the latest version of Microsoft Windows operating system. Compare to its predecessor Windows XP and Vista, Windows 7 is more powerful and more secure. Unlike Windows XP, Windows 7 adopted a new password protection system that we can't use the hidden administrator account by default. The problem is that when Windows 7 administrator password lost, we can no longer recover our lost password by using the hidden administrator account. Therefore, how to recover the Windows 7 Admin password if we lost or forgot it?

Don't worry, here are two methods for Windows 7 administrator password recovery:

Method one: Use another Windows 7 administrator account

If you had created more than one administrator account on your Windows 7 computer and you can remember the others admin password, you are lucky. In such a case, you can change one of the administrator accounts' password if you login with another administrator account. What you need to do is just following these 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Click Start -> Control Panel -> Add or remove user accounts

Step 2: Choose the locked administrator account.

Step 3: Click Change the password or Remove the password. And then you can change or remove the lost or forgotten password.

Please note: If you select this method, the locked Windows 7 administrator account will lose all EFS-encrypted files, personal certificates, and stored passwords for Web sites or network resources.

However, if the locked account is the unique administrator account on your Windows 7 computer, you can try the method below.

Method two: Use third party Windows password recovery software

There is plenty of software which is used to recover Windows password available online. You can choose one of them to create a Windows password recovery disk and use the disk to recover Win 7 Admin password. I recommend Windows Login Recovery. Then you can follow these 4 easy steps:

Step 1: Download the software and install it on another computer which has a CD/DVD writer.

Step 2: Run the software and burn the ISO image file into a blank CD/DVD.

Step 3: Recover Windows 7 administrator password with nearly burned password recovery disk.

Step 4: Reboot your locked computer without a password required.

Now you can regain access your Windows 7 operating system and create a new administrator password. The best thing of using this method is that you shouldn't lose any data on your computer. Furthermore, If you can't find a computer which has a CD/DVD writer or the locked computer have no a CD-ROM, You can burn the ISO image file into a USB flash drive and use the USB flash drive to recover your Windows 7 administrator password.

Try these two methods the next time you lose or forget your Windows 7 administrator password, which you do not need to reinstall Windows system for getting back to Windows by removing lost or forgotten password.

Lost password after reinstallation


There are a couple methods which you can try:

When the computer first boots Windows you can press F8 to access an advanced boot menu.

From there you can choose to boot the computer in "Safe Mode" which changes the system start-up mode.

There should be a hidden user that appears as "Administrator" that you can select...

(When Windows is installed for the first time there is an option for the "Administrator" password. This password is not required and is usually left blank. If you left the password field blank then clicking on user will log you in automatically. Otherwise, you're required to enter the original password you choose to protect the system.)

Log-in into windows as "Administrator" and create a new user in the control panel that you can log-in to the system normally with.

Restart the computer and log-in under the newly created profile to regain access to your system.



If you can't log-in under your user or the administrator profile because you forgot both passwords you will have to do an advanced recovery process, or wipe the system completely.

(Here is a link for a Linux Boot CD image, burn to a disc and boot to change the Administrator password in Windows XP/Media Center/Server 2003 Systems.)

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=RI2D9V90

If this doesn't work you can boot to an alternative recovery disk, Windows CD/DVD, partitioning software, or third party password recovery tool.

When all else fails, you can delete and create a new partition; then you would have to run the Windows setup again to recover your Operating System and drivers.

I am not sure if you mean the administrator password or your OS serial number. If it is the administrator password you are looking for you either have to wipe your drive and reinstall or download a program which automatically makes you the ultimate startup CD for resetting any Windows password.

Windows xp password


Passwords. Those ubiquitious alpha-numeric codes that protect us and give us access to everything digital. Unfortunately, passwords can be confusing because, though your computer likely won't forget a password, you very well might. When this happens, you can be locked out from your whole system, as in the case of the Windows XP Administrator Password. This article will show you how to remove an Administrator password.

Instructions:
  1. Insert your Windows XP CD into your CD drive and boot your computer. If you receive the message "press any key to boot from CD," press any key.
  2. Step 2 Press Enter to setup Windows. After accepting the license agreement, you wil be asked if you want start a Repair process.
  3. Step 3 Press R to begin the Repair process. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files, which can take several minutes. After this, reboot. Let the computer boot normally (do not press a key to boot from CD).
  4. Step 4 Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen. When you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This will open a command line console.
  5. Step 5 Type NUSRMGR.CPL at the prompt and press Enter. This will give you access to User Accounts. Remove or change your password. Write it down! After the repair is finished, you will be able to log on with your new password.
Good luck!

Thank you.
