How to Reset Windows Password with Default Admin Password?


The Windows operating system allows you to assign a password to each user account. This provides privacy to different users on one computer. Each user is allowed to set up his own environment and settings to maintain personal files. The difficultly comes when a computer is not functioning correctly and needs to be put into safe mode, but a password is not available. Creating a disc on Windows permits you to <a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/knowledge/6-windows-password-recovery-solutions.html">reset Windows password</a>, get access to your locked computer and replace the forgotten or lost password. <br /> Let us discuss the method of <a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/knowledge/windows-password-recovery-tool.html">Windows password recovery</a>, if you have access to any of the account with administrator rights or you have not assigned a password to the account with username administrator. Administrator is the default account created in the Windows when it is installed. This has a blank password by default.<br /> start your system to reset the Windows login password. If classic login dialog box appears, write the user with administrator privilege if you know any of them, type its password and press enter to login. Otherwise, type administrator in place for the username and press Enter. If you are successful to login, open the Start menu and click Control Panel to open it. Open the user account and change the password of the desired account. Restart you system to login your account with the changed password. <br /> If your logon screen is Windows XP style, administrator user will not be shown on the logon screen. You have to boot in Safe Mode. Restart your system and press F8 key to display the boot options. Choose the Safe Mode option and press enter to boot. Windows skips loading many drivers. Administrator account is shown in the logon screen. Click it to login. After the Windows desktop is shown, open the Control Panel from the Start menu. Change the password of your account.<br /> Well, still can not successfully solve your Windows password recovery trouble? You'd better take use of a third party software. As is known that <b><a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/windows-password-recovery.html"> Windows Password Unlocker</a></b> is considered to be a professional and appreciated Windows password recovery tool with 100% recovery guarantee and friendly interface.

Try blank. here is the methods I know. The first thing which you check if...


If you have only one Admin account in Vista and have forgotten the password for the same and dont want to reinstall the operating system and land up loosing all your data, this tip is for you.

1) Restart the PC with the Vista Boot Disc.
2) Select Repair Your Computer option
3) Select the Command Prompt

Or - If you dont have a Vista Boot Disc then boot your PC to DOS using any Dos boot disk or other O/s disc.

4) goto "C:\"
5) Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 ( cd c:\windows\system32)
6) Now we will rename the utility manager to cmd.

Type the following commands,
- ren cmd.exe cmdold.exe
- ren utilman.exe cmd.exe
exit

7) we have renamed it successfully.
8) Restart the PC without the disc, reach the screen where you are asked for you password.
9) You will see a white blue icon on bottom left.
10) Click on the icon and CMD will open up, type the following command in CMD.
- net user administrator /active
exit
11) Restart the PC, and you will find you have one more administrator account
12) logon with the new account, goto user accounts and remove the password for your old account.
13) restart the PC with the Disc again, and goto the command prompt as we did in the step 1-3.
14) type the following command,
- cd c:\windows\system32
- ren cmd.exe utilman.exe
- ren cmdold.exe cmd.exe

15) restart the PC, and logon to your own account, open CMD by going from start menu.
16) type the following and restart the PC.
- net user administrator /active:no

17) restart the PC and now you only have one account and thats your own account.

I forgat my. Administration user account and I need to axces to my acer one


1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ++ 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.

2nd Method:
A. Boot using Windows XP Setup CD and follow the instruction like Accepting EULA, etc.
B. When it asks to repair your existing Windows installation, accept it and press "R" to run the repair.
C. Setup will start repairing your Windows and will start copying files, etc.
D. After a few minutes setup will restart your system and when it restarts don't press any key when it shows "Press any key to continue..." otherwise Setup will start from the beginning. Don't press any key and setup will resume where it left.
E. Now it'll start doing other tasks and will show a small progressbar with a few details in left side.
F. Look carefully at the details and when it shows "Installing devices", press +F10 keys in your keyboard.
G. It'll open a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press .
H. It'll open the same "User Accounts" window which you see in Control Panel.
I. Now you can remove or reset any account password without any problem.

Cant get in to my computer lost my password


If you can tell me what the Os do you use, it could be must better.

On XP you can 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".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password reset tool. I recommend Windows Password Reset.

Forgot asus laptop password Windows vista


Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
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:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.
