The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.

I forgot my password


Hirens really works and is free. Burn to CD and follow instructions. Tested, but had to do twice.


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

Reset my password on my acer laptop


If you know the current password then click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. Under user accounts select change password.

If you forgot the password, turn off the laptop then turn it back on and repeatedly hit the F8 key until you see SAFE Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. You will see a login screen with the Administrator account and the Account of the id that you forgot the password. Select the Administrator account (hopefully it will not be password protected). One you are logged in click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. Select the account for which you forgot the password and then select Remove Password. Reboot your laptop.

I forgot my administrator password.i do an advanced recovery method but i cant go on coz need of a user password.my laptop is acer aspire 3750G WINDOWS7.IM ONLY USING THE OTHER USER I MADE BEFORE.


If that user you created is an admin you should be able to simply open control panel, and under users you can find the option to remove the password for the other account. If this is not the case, you need to find or buy a program that can removed the password from a cd or bootable usb drive. It used to be called ERD or Winternals, but now it's part of the microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack.
