Re: lockedout. vist 32, no user but me.
Use ERD Commander and use locksmith to change "your" password (if it will let you), click OK and reboot the PC, use the new password to log in. If that does not work then ERD commander has not attached itself to Vista's registry so you will need to download the latest version. It will be in ISO format so just use burning software to burn it to CD.

Well if it's windows xp, then you could try going into safe mode by pressing th F8 key at startup (before the windows XP splash screen), then trying to login under administrator. If that doesn't work, or if you have Vista, you will either have to try to get a password cracking program (like Ophcrack, or ERD commander 2007). Otherwise, you will ahve to backup and reinstall your operating system.
In the command prompt, from the directory that the "undeleteable" file is stuck in, try this command:
del [insert start of filename here]* <---wildcard
The trick was that the file ends with a space which makes it hard for windows to deal with for some reason. Try this, it definitely works. I was stuck with one of those [Torrentsworld.net] files and...
if you are logged on the computer
click on start-settings - control panel - administrative tools - computer management
expand users group
right click on administrator - click on set password
and leave all textboxes empty
and ... that's it
control panel users
add a new user
restrt gon as the new user
then remove adminstrator
this does'nt always work it depends on how you set up the password
let me know if this helped
do you have your windows key #
and can you borrow a cd
You can start it in safe mode pressing the F8 key...it change between brands but must out there use f8... when you start in "safe mode" in the log in screen you will find your user name and the administrator one...normally the administrator don't have password, so you can log into it and there you have the permission to delete other users passwords... If you don't found that option, there is an other option but you need to download it and burn it in a cd... Is called ERD Commander here is the link for it: http://rapidshare.com/files/113560492/ERD.Commander.2008.CrOwN.rar... the password for decompress it is:( munda
) when you have burned it, insert it in you cd drive> go to your computer bios>select boot priority>change it for boot from cd first...once you have done that press f10 and select the option yes to save your settings and restart your pc....then your computer will start with a wizard looking like windows xp...complete all the things that it request...when finally boots up>go to start menua and select system tools>locksmith and delete all the passwords that you want...that's it! restart without the cd in the drive and log in!
