Windows admin password lost is a normal thing nowadays. The important thing is which way you will choose to change the lost password and how do you change it for your computer's data security. Reset disk can be recommended firstly, because it is quick and easy. If you have no one your second best choice will be reset software. Anmosoft Windows Password Reset can be as an example.

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


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.

    Typically when machine is turned on and first screen appears

    you're presented with options to choose from such as "press

    DELETE to enter setup.Try pressing F8 intermittently at this

    point. You'll also be offered the option of restoring your computer

    to an earlier date.
