If you have Windows XP:

Right after you turn the computer on, start repeatedly tapping on the F8 key on your keyboard until you get a menu screen with the Choices: Safe Mode, Safe Mode With Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, etc.

Use the arrow keys on the keyboard and highlight and select Safe Mode and hit enter. You computer will boot into safe mode and take you to the WIndows Welcome screen where you will see your account listed and an Administrator Account

Choose the Administrator account (Hopefully no one ever set a password on it). Then go to:

Control Panel > User Accounts > Select your account and choose to remove password or change password. Then click Start and log off and try to log into your account with the new password you created.

If you have WIndows Vista, and you did not create a password reset disk, then you will have to format and reinstall Windows.

Parent forgot password on vista and only have access on limited account


Officially, there is no known way to retrieve an administrator password on vista, except by using the "forget password" feature when you are at the Login screen, and hope you remember the password reminder.

unofficially, however, there are plenty of tools out there that will do the trick as well, as long as you know the risks that are involved. you can do a google search for them. They can be dangerous to use, and in some cases, illegal to use depending on the country you hail from, so make sure you do your research, are comfortable with the possibility that you might damage or lock yourself out of your operating system with some of them, and that your country's laws allow the usage of them. (you have been warned :~))
