If your computer is not part of a domain. First check if the Guest account is turned on. You will need to be an Administrator. The guest account option is in the User Account control panel. Click Start > Control Panel (in the right hand column). Select the link for User Accounts. Click on the Guest account to turn on the option.
Then you should be able to see an option for switching to the Guest account when you log out of your current account or get to the select user screen when you turn on/restart the computer. (The default is to log in the most recent user.)
If your XP Pro computer is part of a domain, you need to use the Local Users and Groups section of Computer Management. That's in the Control Panel under Performance and Maintenance > System Tools. Right click on an account and select Properties to enable or disable the account.
if you know the password then log in via the admin and goto control panel > user accounts> administrator> and click change my password.
Enter the new password twice and way you go.
if you have forgot your admin password then:
if there is already an other administrator on your PC then you can log in to that and type net user administrator * in command prompt then enter the new password twice. Note this command can only be valid if you have admin authority.
Try booting to Safe Mode by pressing F8 when Windows logo appears. Try logging in using the Administrator account and change the settings for the other accounts. If it doesn 't work, then try reverting to the previous configuration using System Restore.
you will have to log in to windows as the computer administrator, or with an already existing profile that is set with admin permissions this will enable you to get into the user settings and change the permissions on your own profile. you do this in the control panel user settings.
there must be other users on your computer, as the primary account always has admin privileges, if you haven't modified them in any way. once you've changed your permissions, just log off the admin profile and into your own... you should now be able to install, uninstall, change settings etc.
let me know if you need more guidance on how to do this... bru*
Just restart ur pc and when logon screen appear press ctrl+alt+del then a login window displays there the u see user name field there type Administrator if u have any password of admin then type it and login
Yes, It is possible to reset ur password. My advice will be ... Try to do it legally. If u can afford, pay to some good dealer / service person for doing the same. U may also find many password hack tools on the NET, but...most of them may be fake (infected by trojans)...be careful
IF u are determined to get it...Google for it ... Good Luck
