    I would need to know what version of windows you are running. See if you can run in safe mode and check for hardware conflicts. You might need to run windows setup (repair) if you have a recovery cd or disk that came with your computer

It would have been easier if the Windows Operating System was mentioned, but still considering if you have Windows 8 or Windows 10 installed, Please follow the instructions mentioned on the link given below:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/account-reset-password-forgot-faq

If you have forgotten your Windows 7 password and you are on a domain, you need to contact your system administrator to reset your password. If you are not on a domain, you can reset your Windows password by using a password reset disk or by using an administrator account.
To create a password reset disk, follow the steps mentioned in the Microsoft support page below:
(Note: Before starting with the steps in the following link, make sure that you have selected "Windows 7" in the drop-down menu at the start of the page).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/create-password-reset-disk#1TC=windows-7

To reset your Windows password by using an administrator account, follow the steps mentioned in the Microsoft support page below:
(Note: Before starting with the steps in the following link, make sure that you have selected "Windows 7" in the drop-down menu at the start of the page).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/reset-windows-password#1TC=windows-7

(Important: If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.)
To know more about resetting Windows 7 password, refer to the following Microsoft support page:

How do I Install updates for Microsoft Essentials if the Essentials Programm this refuse?


Normally Microsoft Essentials automatically updates itself along with other automatic updates to other parts of your Operating System (in your case, Windows Vista). But it sounds like there is something wrong here with your automatic settings. At the end of this advice, there will be a link to follow to give you the exact directions to follow to hopefully fix your problem. Once you get to the page this link will send you to, click on the link (in blue letters) that say "How to perform a clean boot." You will now see a circle with a dash in it and "How to perform a clean boot" inside a blue border. A bit further down you will see "Windows 7 and Windows Vista" in blue letters. Follow those directions and it should fix your problem. (Where it states that you might need "administrators rights," don't worry. Unless your computer was set-up with a specific administrator, YOU already have those rights.
Remember, follow the directions including following the links further down the same page. They are: "What is next when I have a clean boot environment" and "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting."
Another piece of advice - Print out ALL 3 sets of instructions before starting this procedure.

Why the system automatically go to safe mode


If you are using Windows XP then you may have the /safeboot set in the boot.ini file which will force XP to always boot into Safe Mode.
When the system has started, click on Start then Run and type MSCONFIG as the command to run.
Open the Boot.ini page tab and make sure that the /SAFEBOOT option is not selected in the Boot options section of the page.
Save the change and restart Windows and it should start normally.

You should actually have 2 accounts. One is called Administrator and appears when you start your operating system in safe mode. It has no password by default so you should still be able to access it.

Restart your computer and keep hitting 'F8' until you're prompted with a menu. Select something along the lines of 'Start Windows In Safe Mode' and Windows will load. Just login to the administrator account and remove the password.
It might also be a good idea to put a password on the admin account and keep it somewhere safe.

If that doesn't work then reset the password via the jumpers on the MOBO. See below:

Assuming that you have a Pentium Processor:

Shut down your PC. Detach Power plug. Open your CPU case. Touch casing or metal to ensure grounding. You will see 3 pins on the mother board. In that 3 pins first 2 pins are closed with a jumper. Take the jumper off & replace it on the other two pins. Now try to turn on your PC. It should open Windows without asking you for password.
