How to Reset Windows Password With an Standard User Account?


When you <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/forgot-windows-password.html">forgot Windows password</a>, did you feel confused that why you cannot reset the forgotten Windows password via standard user or guest account? The answer is very simple as the standard user and guest accounts do not have rights to reset the password of another accounts. Within the three types of Windows user accounts, only the administrator account allows you to change another accounts' password. So if you want to <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-password.html">reset Windows password</a> of another accounts, you need to change your account type to administrator firstly. Moreover, if you need to give a user more access to perform tasks like installing software or other system changes, you also need to change your account type.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Steps to Change Windows User Account Type</span><br /><br />1. Log on your Windows machine with an administrator account.<br /><br />2. Click "Start" - "Control Panel" - "User Accounts and Family Safety" - "User Accounts".<br /><br />3. Click "Manage another account".<br /><br />4. Click on the user account that you would like to change its type.<br /><br />5. On the following window, click "Change the account type" from on the left pane.<br /><br />6. Select Administrator and click "Change Account" Type to finish your operation.<br /><br />Since the standard user account turn to an administrator one, you can reset Windows password of another accounts or do other operations without limitation through control panel.<br /><br />You can change standard user to administrator only when you can log on your computer with an available administrator account. If you forgot Windows password of all administrator accounts, you'll need to reset Windows administrator password even you can access your computer with a standard user or guest account.<br /><br />Software Windows Login Recovery allows you to create a password reset disk with blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive. With the disk you can reset Windows password to be empty in few minutes. With it, you'll never be worried when you forgot Windows password. All you need to do is just three steps.<br /><br />1. Download and install Windows Login Recovery.<br /><br />2. Burn a password reset disk with a blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive.<br /><br />3. Reset Windows password to be empty.<br /><br />Now you can log on to your computer without passwords. By the way, you can reset any account's password with this software. <br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Something about Windows User Accounts</span><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Administrator:</span> A administrator account is intended for someone who can make system wide changes to the computer, install software, and access all non-private files on the computer. Only with administrator rights you can full access to other user accounts on the computer, change other their names, passwords, and types.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Standard user:</span> The standard user account can help protect your computer by preventing users from making changes that affect everyone who uses the computer. When you log on to Windows with a standard user account, you can do anything that you can do with an administrator account. But if you want to install software or hardware, reset Windows password of another accounts, etc. the computer might ask you to provide a password of an administrator account.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Guest:</span> A Guest account allows people to use your computer without having rights to access to any of your personal files. This can be useful if you want to quickly allow someone to use your computer. A person that log on computer with guest account cannot install software or hardware, change system settings, or create a password.

How to get computer off a tempory profile


which operating system ?

Every time that you log on to a Windows Vista-based computer that is connected to a domain, a temporary user profile is created.


When you log off the computer, the user profile is deleted.

This behavior usually occurs because the account that you use to log on to the computer is a member of one or more of the following groups:
•Guests
•Domain Guests

If this is a school/work computer then this is most likely the way the NetAdmin has set it up.

If this is your home computer then a temporary user profile is issued each time an error condition prevents the user's profile from loading.


You may encounter profile issues if you log on with a user in the Guests group.

You need to remove the user in question from the local Guests or "Domain guests" group and that should do it.

1. Click Start

2. Right click Computer and Select Manage

3. Select Local Users and Groups > Groups

4. Double click Guests

5. Check if the user that is having the issue is a member of the Guests group

6. If so, remove the user from the Guests group

7. Log off the workstation and log back on

8. Verify the profile is now local

a. Log on to the system by using an administrative user account other than the user account that is experiencing the problem.


b. Back up all data in the current users profile folder if the profile folder still exists, and then delete the profile folder. By default, the profile resides in the following location:

e. Under the ProfileList subkey, delete the subkey that is named SID.bak.

Note SID is a placeholder for the security identifier (SID) of the user account that is experiencing the problem.


The SID.bak subkey should contain a ProfileImagePath registry entry that points to the original profile folder of the user account that is experiencing the problem.

f. Exit Registry Editor.

g. Log off the system.

h. Log on to the system again.

After you log on to the system, the profile folder is re-created

When loading the disk for installing my 2nd hand lexmark x2250 printer and clicking install, it comes up with an error page?...


You may be logged on your computer using a guest account. A guest account can access the computer but has limited rights and permissions (e.g. downloading applications, computer configuration changes, install software or hardware). Please ask your technician or access the Administrator account to successfully install the printer driver. You may also ask the owner of the Administrator account to grant you additional rights and any permissions to your guest account for future changes.

HOW DO I REMOVE THE GUEST ADMINISTRATOR WITHOUT BEING AN ADMINISTRATOR ON MY COMPUTER SO I CAN DOWNLOAD THINGS ON MY COMPUTER


You question is not that specific so i can't give you the specific answer, there're several ways to configure this settings, but it depends on the Operating system you are using. If you are using windows Xp, log off from the desktop and press Ctrl+Alt+Del simultaneously on the login screen (sometimes you'll need to press several times), a small logon window will pop up, type administrator on the username box and if a password was set with the administrator, key in the password, or if there's none, just press enter after typing the "administrator". After you are logged in with the administrator account, go to control panel - user account - create new - and create an account (any username that you want to give) with the administrator privilege (rights) {you should select Computer Administrator}. Again log off and login using the new username and password (if you've set a password). Now with that account, you can do anything with your computer. If it's not Xp then the problem is difficult being without the administrator's rights. If you have another account with administrator's rights, then you can disable the Guest account. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

System won't go past profile page..stuck


It seems that the Guest account profile is corrupted because of which you are unable to log in as like in previously.

In the Profile Login page, hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will give you a window where you need to enter the User name and Password.

Enter the User name as administrator and leave the password column blank if you have not set any Password to the administrator account or enter the Administrator password if you have set any.

Now once you are loged into the Administrator account, create a new User from the Control Panel > User Accounts.

Set the required limitatios to the account like limited account or administrator account and log off from the administrator account.

Now, you should have the newly created user account available in the login page. Select it and you should be able to login.
