    Then you have a password .. the only way you may get around that is if you start up in safe mode and try logging in under the Administrator account and "hope" that there is no password. You can then goto the control panel and user accounts and clear/reset the password .. if there is a password on all the accounts .. let me know .. I can direct you to a utility that can assist with that problem

    Can you get in under safe mode?

  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Feb 10, 2009

    So when you try to get into safe mode and access the Administrator account it is asking for a password?

    Finally .. here is another way

    A. Boot using Windows XP Setup CD and follow the instruction like AcceptingEULA, etc.

    B. When it asks to repair your existing Windows installation, accept it andpress “R” to run the repair.

    C. Setup will start repairing your Windows and will start copying files, etc.

    D.
    After a few minutes setup will restart your system and when it
    restartsdon’t press any key when it shows “Press any key to continue…”
    otherwise Setupwill start from the beginning. Don’t press any key and
    setup will resume whereit left.

    E. Now it’ll start doing other tasks and will show a small progressbar with afew details in left side.

    F. Look carefully at the details and when it shows “Installing devices“, press+F10 keys in your keyboard.

    G. It’ll open a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press .

    H. It’ll open the same “User Accounts” window which you see in Control Panel.

    I. Now you can remove or reset any account password without any problem.

How do I reset the password on the windows 7 home page


Windows has a built-in security system that requires a user to type in a password to get to his personal account.
Only an "Administrator" account holder can make software changes to the computer.
All other users, including Guest users, need the permission of an Administrator to make any system changes.
However, if you have a guest account and need to access the Administrator account to make changes, you can do so via the Command Prompt feature.
Log in to your Guest account in Windows.
Go to "Start" > "Search" and type in "windows/system32/cmd.exe" to find the Command Prompt feature.
When the file appears on the search menu, drag it to your desktop.
Leave the search window open.

Right-click the cmd.exe file on your desktop and choose "Rename."
Type "sethc.exe" for the new name and click on an empty area next to the file name to save the new name.
Right-click on the "sethc.exe" file and click on "Copy."
Go back to the open "windows/system32" folder and right-click anywhere in the folder.
Select "Paste" to put the "sethc.exe" file inside.
Choose "Yes" when asked if you want to overwrite the current file.
Go to "Start" > "Log Off." It will bring you back to the User Account menu.
Press the "Shift" key 5 times in a row.
The Command Prompt will open.
Type "net user administrator [password]" and insert a new password in the [password] section.
Press "Enter" to set your new password.
It will bring you back to the User Accounts menu.
Click on the Administrator User Account and type the password you just set to log in to the account.

ADMINISTRATOR account disabled


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.
