Boot your computer into Safe Mode. It sometimes varies, but the typical way on most WinXP

based machines is to strike the F8 key during P.O.S.T. Once the drivers load you need to

access the Command Prompt. START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / COMMAND

PROMPT. A new window will appear.

At command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts application.

On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be
logged on each time you start your computer.

This is also an opportunity to set a new Administrator password.

Reset windows 7 password, three ways:

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Reset .

I forgot my Administrator Password


While you lost windows os password, you can enter safe mode (F8 when booting up) to remove windows password when you lost user account password, but when you forgot admin passwords, there is no way to change it, you have to use tool to recover administrator password. Yesterday evening, I forgot my Windows administrator password. At last, I used Windows Password Seeker to retrieve my Windows password successfully. It's worth a try.
