There is a utility you can get off the internet called Sala Passwordrenew. Add this utility to a bootable disk, boot your computer to thatdisk and run the sala utility. It allows you to change the password toany account on the system. You can get it at http://kood.org/windows-password-renew/

How to enable the hidden Administrator account in Windows 7 and Windows Vista


Unlike Windows XP the administrator account is disabled by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Many people prefer to have the amin account open just in case they forget their main account password or to alocate admin rights over another user account like your childrens for example.

In the tip I am going to tell you how to enable the admistrator account so it is visible on the Welcome Screen.

These step only apply to Windows 7 and Windows Vista accounts that have admin rights, they won't work on an account which is limited or which is a guest account.


1. Click on the Start Menu.
2. Click on All Programs.
3. Click on Accessories.
4. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. An Adminstarator Command prompt window will open.
5. In the command window type "net user adminstrator /active:yes" or "net user adminstrator active:yes"(with out the quotation marks)
6. to disable the admin account type in the command window "net user adminstrator /active:no" or "net user adminstrator active:no" (without the quotation marks)
7. Close the command window.
8. Log out of your account.

When you have logged out of your account you will see the Administrator account on the Welcome Screen.
If you don't see the admin account straight away all you have to do is restart your computer.

That should be it.

ADMINSTRATOR PASSWORD HAVE FORGOTTEN IT AND NEED IT


Hello !

If you are truly referring to the Administrator account and not an account with Administrator privileges and added a password and have forgotten, the only alternative is to reinstall the operating system.

If you are referring to an account with Administrator privileges, access the Administrator account via Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly upon booting) and login with Administrator and no password. Go to Control Panel - User Accounts and reset the user's password.

Hope this helps.

Windows XP - Cannot access user name or adminstrator name to log in


Have You Lost Your Windows Admin Password?

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press <ctrl>+<alt>+<del> keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.
