Re: password

Well, if you forgot your login password in windows vista, you can use Windows Login Recovery to bypass Windows vista password. And here is guide for you:
1: Start Windows Login Recovery software, select Reset local account password for Windows 7/Vista/XP/2008/2003/2000, and then click Next.
2: Insert the CD/DVD or USB flash drive into the computer. Select CD/DVD or USB, click on Burn to start burning a password reset disk.
3: The password reset disk will be successfully burned automatically then. Then click Quit when finishing burning.
Then you can use the password reset disk to crack windows vista password. It works great. Hope it be helpful.

Re: password

When you get the logon screen tap control alt and delete together until you get a different sign in screen.  Remove her name and type in administrator without a password.  This should let you in.  Go to control panel, users and remove her password.

My daughter forgot her password for her netbook how can i reset it?

i think you can do it from "safe mode" anyway shut the computer down, turn it back on and hit F8 choose safe mode. wait till the logon screen appears..there should be no username/password.

Right click "MyComputer" scroll to manage, Expand "Local Users/Groups", Open "Users", Right click your daughters account name, Reset Password/Set Password

hopefully that helps...if not then you may need to use a crack cd to get "Winternals" or "Spotmau"

Getting past password when turning on

No, actually would be quite easier if you booted the laptop in safemode. once in safemode, you will see a user name that ordinarily is not there. This user name is called "Admin" or "Administrator".

Click on Admin and go to control panel, user accounts, click on the one your daughter messed with, and select delete password. From there, you can leave it deleted or create new one yourself.

to boot to safemode, follow these steps:
1) restart laptop
2) repeatedly press F8 and windows utility screen will appear. From here, select safemode
**Don't be alarmed by the bunch of jibberish you will notice on screen as system boots up to safemode.
Once your mission has been accomplished, simply reboot once more and system will automatically boot normally.

It depends on what operating system your using, if it's windows XP then you should be able to press 'control' 'alt' and 'delete' twice when it comes up with the logon screen. This will then give you the option to log into an account called administrator. This will either have no password, or have the same password that you originally used to setup the account. From here you should be able to either change the password of the other account or, create a new account.
Failing that you can hang your son upside down from a window untill he remembers.
