Try this:when turning it on press, press F8. Change or remove the password, if a windows password. If a BIOS password remove the CMOS battery,short the terminals and then reinstall the battery.

Which administrator account are you talking about? The 'real' administrator or your normal "administrator group" account? If it's you normal account do you have another account with administrator privileges?
Rather than wait for answers I'll cover the above three possibilities. If it's something else I'll need more input.
1) If it's the real administrator, this is a fairly easy fix (that I had to do the other day because my OEM set a password for the account).
·Open Control Panel > User Accounts and select the option that allows you to change other accounts;
·Select the Administrator account;
·Turn off password required. Changing this option will not require a password.
2) If it's your own account but you have another account on the system with administrator privileges, the procedures above will work as well here.
3) If it's you own account and no other account has administrator privileges it will be much more complicated.
First, make a try at changing the account you are in to administrator. It's unlikely this will work and would be a major security hole, but it's worth a shot.
If that doesn't work, try booting to a command prompt and activating the real administrator. The procedures at this link attached with this post/answer, will walk you through booting to a command prompt. Once at the command prompt type the following two lines:
Net user administrator /active:yesNet user administratorp@ssw0rD Notes: 1) These two lines can be in any order; 2) "p@ssw0rD" is an example, type any password you ; and 3) The password line may not be needed in your case. I added it because my OEM set a password on my new computer. If they did on yours as well, you would have to boot back to a command prompt to change the password later so may as well do it now. You can always turn it off later.
Once you have the real administrator activated, boot back up and logon to the administrator account. Once there, use the procedure from "1)" above. this third possibility may not work, I've never actually had to try it this way, but it makes logical sense.
Good luck.

You have committed an illegal act screen

Couple of things to try

Run it in safe mode and download malwarebytes from the web, scan your full system and it might pick it up.

Also try
Combo fix

If this fails open command prompt and type rstrui.exe this will open the system restore, go back a month or so and see if that has effect.

If that fails you will need to get the disk that was sent with your pc and load windows again, if you dont have the disk then you can buy it online for cheap.

Let me know if you need anymore guidance im happy to help.

How t master reset a toshiba satellite pro 420 cdt

Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcom Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

from the off position, turn on, continuously hit the F8 key to force the startup menu, select last known good configuration and reboot. If this does not work, do the F8 thing again, and select safe mode. If you cannot reboot, you will have to do a clean reinstal using your factory recovery CD. If you can get into safe mode, immediately start saving your files to whatever media device you can.

go to start/run and type cmd and hit enter - type in chkntfs /c e and hit enter, reboot. This will start and system checking procedure on bootup. Again, if this does not fix things you will have to boot from your recovery CD.

Good luck!

You can simply change your password. Standard OS IS Linux. With CTRL-T you can open a Terminal, then you can type:
man passwd <ENTER>
to view a brief help text for the command. Read it and you can change your password from the command line with a single command.

passwd user password <ENTER>
