As far as I know , there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:
1st Method:
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:
Windows password Recovery software:
for example:Windows Password Recovery It is easy and convenient to use.

Download Astrumi (Linux Live CD), as it has an option to remove or change the SAM file (password) in Wind0z3, so no 3 weeks of brute-force dictionary attack rainbow table cracking! SAMInside, Brutus and l0phtcr4ck are also good options (my favorite is l0phtcr4ck, as it can crack over the local subnet).

HTH

TIMMAY!

Help me.. i have forgotton my bloody password :) PLEASE HELP ME :L :L :L just give me words and stuffff :D


Reboot, at startup press F8 to access the safe mode menu. As long as you've never set a password for the administrator you should be able to log into safe mode as the administrator without a password. From here, go into User Accounts and select your user name and reset the password from there. In there future, you will want to place a password on your administrator account to keep someone from changing your password or having unauthorized access to your system.

Cannot log into my computer


Push F8 before you see the Windows loading screen. This will give you an option for safe mode. You will see a new account labled Administrator. Select that one and you can remove your password from your user account. Go to control panel, then user accounts. Select yours and remove password.
