You can Search windows password seeker or check out their site:

Re: cant log on

You will have to press F8 to get into safe mode, then select start windows in safe mode. when in safe mode select the administrator account and then log in on that, then go to your user account and either delete the password or delete your account, all saved docs will still be there in an old folder with your account name if you need to delete the account. restart the pc as normal then you should be able to log on without the need for a password.

Have a HP Pavillion with an administrator password I cant remember on a log on screen. Took out battery and moved jumpers and still cant get in help

If this is a BIOS Password, the steps you have taken should have worked.

If this is a Windows Password, you will need to download and run a Password Crack which will Blank the Password for you so you can later reset it.

I have used:

Also do a Google Search for Windows Password Cracker - Lots of Free Solutions out there.

Hope this Helps

For got password to login in how do i fix this

What are you trying to login into? Your Windows computer or a website?

If you are trying to log into your computer and forgot the password.
Try starting in Safe Mode, by restarting the computer, and as soon as you see the Computers Manufacturers logo start pressing F8 on the keyboard. Select Safe Mode from the options (usually option 3). When it loads select the Administrator account (unless you set a password when you installed your operatinsg system, this should not have a password set. Leave the password field blank and log in. Once logged in, go into Control Panel, Select user accounts and remove or change the password for your user account. Save changes. Exit control panel and Restart the computer.

If you forgot the password for a website, most sites have a Forgot Password or Need assistance with Logging in link. That link is usually under the login boxes.

Hope this helps

Cant log in windows!

Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.

Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
And yes, Do not forget to rate this solution :)

Cant Log on my com. LOST PASSWORD.

This comes from Yahoo but the last time I recovered a lost pass I hooked the drive up as slave on another machine and used a program to search for the pass on the old drive.

Method 1: Take a rest, and try hard to remember the forgotten password

Sometimes, human being is a little weird. You won’t get the thing that you urgently need. So have a coffee, take a snap or even come back after a few days, you may found that you suddenly ‘remember’ your Windows password.

Method 2: Try No Password Administrator Login Backdoor

In Windows XP (not Windows Vista as Administrator account is not enabled by default), there is built-in Administrator user account, that has administrative credentials, enabled by default, and without any password to protect the account from been access. If you didn’t change this Administrator’s password, then try to sign in to Windows XP without password.

Method 3: Reset password from another user account with administrator credentials

If you cannot log on to Windows by using a particular user account, but you can log on to another account that has administrative credentials, follow these steps on how to do the trick:

Log on to Windows by using an administrator account that has a password that you remember. You may need to start WinXP in safe mode.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type “control userpasswords2′, and then click OK.
Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password.
Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Method 4: LOGON.SCR password reset trick

LOGON.SCR changing administrator or domain admin password hack works on Windows NT 4.0 and some versions of Windows 2000. The simple trick uses Cmd.exe as screen saver that triggered by system when idle, allowing users to access to command prompt to change password.

Method 5: Do-It-Yourself (DIY) third party recovery tool

There are a lot of tools and utilities that can be downloaded and used to recover, reset, retrieve or reveal existing password. These password reset or retrieval utilities, free or paid, are usually a Linux boot disk or CD that able to comes with NT file system (NTFS) drivers and software that will read the registry and rewrite the password hashes, or can brute force crack the password for any user account including the Administrators. The advantage is that there is no fear of leaking your password to outsiders, while the process requires physical access to the console and a floppy or CD drive, depending on which tool you choose. And it’s not easy, although it always work!

Offline NT Password & Registry Editor - Available as bootdisk or bootable CD, Offline NT Password and Registry Editor works to change or reset password of any users on Windows NT 3.51, NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Vindows Vista 32 and 64 bit. It can also detect and offer to unlock locked or disabled user accounts.
