Your account has been disabled windows 10


This is one of the problems with windows 10. If you have not yet created a local account you may be out of luck. If I am not mistaken your account only stays disabled for a period of time usually the default is set to 30 minutes. This is a function of your laptop and not of the Microsoft service. But I am not entirely sure about that. either way the lockout is only temporary. My guess is it is just your laptop that is locked out and it will reset itself after the timeout period has expired. Leave it sit for a day and don't try to login too soon or you may re-activate the lockout. (Good luck)

Why do i have to change my paswort all the time?


You might have it set to change at certain intervals
IE: at log in or after each restart .......

Disable password log in
On both PC and Mac computers, you can set up your system to automatically log in to a certain user account.
As a result, this setting will allow you to bypass the password login that is typically required.
You should only enable automatic login on your computer if it cannot be easily accessed by other people.

Open the Start menu and click on "Run."
Type "control userpasswords2" (no quote marks) into the dialog box and press the Enter key.

Uncheck the box next to "Users must enter a username and password" and click on the "Apply" button.

Enter the username of the account you want to automatically log in with and then type that account's password twice to finish setting up automatic login.

Click "OK." Password login has now been disabled.
Mac Instructions

Open System Preferences by clicking on the Dock icon.

Go to the "Accounts" control panel under the "System" heading.

Click on the "Login Options" button at the bottom of the window.

Select the account that you want to automatically log in with from the "Automatic login" drop-down menu.
Password login has now been disabled.

Depending on what operating system you have, there are several steps you must take in order to disable the administrator account and password on your computer.
Most often, the administrator account and password are disabled in order to minimize security risks on your computer.
This account is often the target of attack if your system is compromised, as it allows access to all of the data and programs on the computer.

In order to disable the administrator account and password, follow the steps below that are outlined for the major operating systems.

If you are using Windows XP, you must be logged on as the administrator in order to disable the account settings.
Microsoft suggests that you set up another account with administrator permissions in the event that you may need to reverse this process.
Otherwise, you won't be able to.
Right-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and select manage.
Click Users under Local Users and Groups in the left pane, which will bring up all users on the computer.
Double-click Administrator and on the General tab, check Account is disabled.
This will disable the Administrator account and password for Windows XP users.
In Windows 2000, go to Start, select Programs and go to Administrative Tools.
Click on Local Security Policy.
Next, click on User Rights Assignment under the Local Policies option in the left panel.
Double-click Deny access to this computer from the network and then click Add under Local Security Policy Setting.
Click Administrator account under Users and Groups, then click Add.
Click OK to complete the disabling of the Administrator account and password.

In Windows Vista, the Administrator account is automatically disabled.
However, if you have enabled it, you will need to open a command prompt.
Go to Start Menu, click All Programs, select Accessories and right-click on Command Prompt and click run as Administrator.
Open the command box and type net user administrator/active:no. Press enter and you should receive a prompt stating the command was completed successfully.

If you are running a Mac, the Administrator account is enabled by default.
To disable the account and password, go to the Apple menu, click System Preferences.
Choose Accounts from the View menu and click the lock to authenticate with the administrator account password.
Click login options, click edit, and after clicking the lock in the Directory Utility window, click Disable Root User from the Edit menu.

Administrator password


You may have to contact Dell directly if its a hard drive or BIOS password.
I do know using a Windows 7 install disc will repair this error (if you can get past the password). Just insert and choose repair. gl

Im using my mobile phone to get into my yahoo messenger, but unfortunately i've encounter a reply that my my account has been locked due to too many incorrect logins. how am i going to unlock my messenger...


Account lockout has several means to resolvement. First, several attempts to login into an account with wrong usernames or passwords causes' temporary lockout. In a situation that the wrong entity was attempting to attain access makes the account preserved until the appropriate usernames or passwords were provided. Allowing time to capture the reconfigurations becomes the methods to recapturing lockout. Circumstance causes from accounts that have network administrators require contacting the email, phone or chat specialist to recapture missing details to an authentic user experience. Alternately, accounts that have enabled prior notifications from network administrator to reproved missing details would be emailed or contacted with new resources bout the compromised account features. In situations of urgency to recapture missing passwords or usernames requires contacting the experts or host entity to recover materials.

Windows xp pro logon error message "unable to log you on because your account has been locked out"


Hey!
If your computer is a part of a business network, you should contact the network administrator so he/she would setup or reconfigure your user account correctly.

If it's a home computer, you'll have to log on as Administrator to unlock your account. To do so:
  1. Click Start -> Log off (user name).
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice.
  3. Type Administrator in the user name and fill in the Administrator account's password. Leave blank if there isn't any.
  4. Once logged in, Click Start -> Run...
  5. Type in: LUSRMGR.MSC and click OK.
  6. Double-click on Users folder.
  7. Double-click on your locked user account.
  8. Uncheck "Account is disabled" and click OK.
  9. Close "Local Users and Groups" window.
  10. Click Start -> Log off Administrator.
  11. Login to your user account!
Note: If you don't have access to the Administrator account (because you don't have the password), please do tell and I'll give you the instructions on how to reset it.

GOOD LUCK!
Pelu.

My netbook wont let me log on, and is telling that my password is wrong. How can I logon?


Check if Caps lock is on. If there is a local administrator account you can sign on with instead, try that. If this is a work laptop you've taken home to use, it may be looking for your work's wireless network.

User password lockout - Vissta home premium


you can search for a password boot disk which will disable the administrator password.
There are dozens of these types of programs but one program I recommend is windows password reset 6.0
http://www.resetwindowspassword.com
Download the iso file and burn it to a disk to create the boot disk,

that simple. Configure your pc or laptop to boot in the cd drive,

insert the CD and it would boot then just disable the password and
restart.
Took about 5 minutes for the whole process.

Cannot perform factory image restore


Some Dell's have the Administrator account disabled by default. However, you do not need this account to do a factory restore. You are added as an administrator by default when you setup the PC for the first time. Just type your username and password into the box and click OK.
