Forgotten log in password


Which system do you use?

On windows xp, try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

If that doesn't or you use windows 7 or vista, try this:
1. Enter a computer that can link to Internet. Download Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 and install the software on that computer.
2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions.
3. Eject the created CD/DVD and insert it into the locked computer.
4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's BIOS setting to make it boot from CD drive) and then follow the instructions to reset your password.
5. Now login Windows and set a new password.

Hi i forgot my administror password to my emachine. i didnt create a password reset disk either hav lots of files i need to retrieve. How can i fix this solution?


Search the Internet for "NT Offline Password Editor" -- this is free software.
If you can write these downloaded files to a CD-recordable disk,
and you can boot your computer from the CD, instead of from the 'C:' drive,
then you can delete the password for the 'Administrator' account.
Then, reboot, and logon to the 'Administrator' account, and set a new password.

Or, if there is another account with "administrative" privileges on the computer,
login to that account, open Control Panel, and open Users, and change the password
for the 'Administrator' account.

I have an dell computer and i have forgot the password to get in it. how can i get in my computer without a password


try loading the computer in Safemode, while booting the computer press F8 and select safemode, and you will have a user named as "administrator" (if you did not delete the user before from safemode). this user may not have any password. login to it and go to start>control panel> users> and select your user and change/ remove password.

If this doesn;t work, please download the software named hiren from this
URL http://www.hirensbootcd.net/download.html
and run it from the CD or a flash drive. this will load a virtual windows OS and you can change the password from there by going to control panel, users.

Hope this helps.

I want to know how to delete a standerd user account?


I you are using Windows, click "Start" then "Control Panel" then "User Accounts," then "Change an Account." Choose the account you wish to delete, then click "Delete Account" it will ask you if you want to keep the account's files, say yes only if you had something important on that account. NOTE:you can only delete accounts if you are a administrator.
If you are using a Mac, click "System Preferences" then "Accounts" then select the account you wish to delete and click the little minus sign at the bottom. NOTE: Like Windows, you can only delete accounts if you are an administrator.

Can i delete my administrator password my cousin gave me the computer and he has forgotten the password


I can solve this problem, but I need more information.

What operating system are you using? Windows XP, Windows 2000, Vista, etc.?
Are you able to log on to Windows and use the computer without an Administrator's password?

If you can log in, go to Control Panel > User Accounts > and create a new account with administrator privileges. Make sure you include a hint and you can remember the password.

Forgotten Administrator Password


Greetings,


Please restart the computer.

Before windows boots hit the 'F8' key on the keyboard.

Select 'Safemode with command prompt'

Log in the default administrator account.

When the black command window appears type: control userpasswords2

Click on the user account you wish to change, then click 'reset password'


;)

Password


Are you referring to your windows password? To bypass this, you can login on safe mode (F8 as soon as you see the Dell Logo) via administrator login. As soon as you were able to login under the administrator profile, follow this. Go to control panel --> User Accounts --> select the Account that you're having difficulty loggin in --> remove password ---> delete all characters under the field ---> click OK. Restart the computer normally. 
If it happens that the administrator login also asks the same password, this would mean that your own profile is the administrator and the only way to eliminate this would be to do a Repair or OS reinstallation.

I forgot my administrator password


safe mode will open windows with minimal amount of drivers, but will still require a password. Safe mode with command prompt will open in a simulated dos mode, and you can type "explorer" at the command prompt to open the gui and get to the start menu. buty this may not help.

i have sucessfully removed administrator password from windows by taking the hard drive out and installing it in another system as a secondary hard drive. i then manually deleted the "sam" file from windows/system32.

you can also reset the password by reinstalling windows or performing a second, parallel, installaation of windows (identical OS) on the same drive, and then deleting the second installation.
