Creating a new Admin on Mac Os X:
Here's how to reset your OS X password without an OS X CD.
the Working solution for me was to create a new admin
you can create new admin like this by deleting a specific file.

You need to enter terminal and create a new admin account:

1. Reboot
2. Hold apple key + s key down after you hear the chime.
(command + s keys on newer Macs)
3. When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):

mount -uw /
rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
shutdown -h now

4. After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and your good to go again!

Lost windows password? you can go into safe mode (F8 when booting up) to reset...


Last week when my friend bought a Windows XP installed netbook, he created a complex Windows login password to bolster the privacy of his netbook. Unfortunately, he couldn't remember the spelling of his own password the next day and was unable to use his netbook. I suggested Windows Password Key 8.0 to reset the password and start using his netbook again. Let’s find out more about Windows Password Key 8.0.
Windows Password Key 8.0 is a useful application, which can be used to reset the Windows login password on your netbook with the help of USB flash drive. Windows Password Key 8.0 is compatible with all versions of Windows.

However, your netbook must have minimum system requirements to enable Windows Password Key 8.0 to reset your Windows login password. First, your Windows must be installed in a FAT-16, FAT-32 or NTFS partition and you must also have bootable USB flash drive to reset the password.

You'll need to install Windows Password Key 8.0 on any other Windows PC, which is accesible to you. Once the installation is complete, Windows Password Key 8.0 will launch on the screen.
In the Windows Password Key 8.0 window, you'll need to select the existing Windows Password Key 8.0 image, which is ideally located as a default option under ‘Choose the existing windows password key 8.0’.

Select the option ‘USB Flash Drive’ and insert your USB flash drive in the USB port. After you insert the USB flash drive, select it from the drop down list and click the ‘Burn’ button.

When the ‘burning’ process starts, Windows Password Key 8.0 extracts the ISO image and copies the necessary Windows files to your USB flash drive.

Now you can insert your newly created USB flash drive into your netbook port, and then reboot your operating system. Be sure to change your netbook set up to make it boot from your USB flash drive.

When your operating system boots from your USB flash drive, the Windows Password Key 8.0 will initialize on your netbook screen. You need to select ‘Windows installation to be processed’ and then select the user, whose password you need to reset by typing the number associated with it, followed by the ‘ENTER’ key.

In the next screen, type ‘Y’ followed by ‘ENTER’ to reset a new password.
After you reset a new password, remove the Windows Password Key 8.0 bootable USB flash drive and restart your netbook to log in using your new password.
It is always a good practice to set up a simple password for our windows login. Although we have utility applications like Windows Password Key 8.0 for our rescue, it becomes a tedious task to reset password, especially when you are travelling with important documents on your netbook.
