SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: carnt access safe mode? carnt unlock password

Hello there Lorna.

This reply is composited from a couple different draft-stage "Tips & Tricks" articles I'm in the middle of developing. Given your (and so many others) dilemma, I don't have the heart to NOT offer this ad-hoc version in the meantime.

To be sure, you are refering to your Windows password(s), correct? If so, essentially you have three potential solution methods:


At the outset, it's necessary to understand the distinction of the word "administrator" within this discussion. There is:

  • The primary user ACCOUNT which is default named "Administrator".
  • The word "administrator" meaning TYPE OF PRIVILEGES (aka credentials) a user/account may be assigned. Having administrator privileges is akin to possessing a master-key granting unlimited access to the operating system.

If you have Windows XP (and applies to XP only), upon your system's initial installation THE "Administrator" account password was left blank. Normally this just prompts a repeat of my commentary about what a bone-headed policy on Microsoft's part this was (and it was). But not this time, because provided no one has ever subsequently set its password (which is very often the case), you will be the lucky recipient of your own unknown security breach. Therefore, go ahead, try logging on as "Administrator", leaving the password field blank, then OK.

NOT LISTED? Not all users are necessarily displayed at the Windows login "Welcome" screen. The work-around:
  1. Depress and hold down, then release (in sequence) the keys 'Ctrl' + 'Alt' + 'Del' two times (or more until both sequences are recognized successfully).
  2. A "Log On to Windows" dialog will display in which you can type in "Administrator" (or any other registered user).
Success? If yes, then perform steps in method 2 and get all your accounts' passwords in order. This of course includes THE "Administrator" account that's still lacking the password it never should have been without in the first place. But hey, now you know.


As long as at least one user account with administrator privileges can login to Windows, you already have the ability to reset passwords on any/all remaining accounts.
  1. Login to Windows as ANY user who has administrator privileges.
  2. [Start > Run ... > type "control userpasswords2" (without quotes), then "OK"].
  3. Select any (other than currently logged on) user from the list of "Users for this computer", then click "Reset Password".
  4. Type a new password in "New password" and "Confirm new password", then "OK".


There exist several FREEWARE software tools whose sole function is to access/modify Windows operating system (OS) passwords (aka password resetters). They have in common the REQUIREMENT of being run from a WinPE/BartPE/Live based CD booted environment. In other words, the tool CANNOT be run from within the normally booted Windows OS it's going to work on.

Moreover, just as there are many password resetters to choose from, there are also many FREEWARE choices of these bootable CD's necessary to "host" them. Most are designed for the purpose of performing system recovery tasks (i.e., fixing troubled PC's and salvaging data). In this case I'm going to recommend "Hiren's Boot CD". Hiren's (and many others) include more than one of these password resetters to choose from. However, my preference and recommendation is for one called "Password Renew" (by sala).

NOTE: You having to use this method is truly a blessing in disguise. Your bonus for being prompted by this little password problem of yours, is that you'll be left with an invaluable tool you'll likely be relieved to have many times over in the furture. In fact, you should accomplish the following even if you DON'T NEED to "this time", becuase the BEST time to have a disk such as this, is BEFORE you NEED it.

  1. Download "Hiren's Boot CD" (select latest version, then click the download link).
  2. Extract/unpack/unzip/decompress (<-choose your term, they all mean the same thing) the disk image file "Hiren's.BootCD.#.ISO" located within the archive file "" you just downloaded (where # = version).
  3. Burn this disk image to CD using whichever capable disk image burning software (e.g., Nero, Roxio, etc.) you may have. Don't have one? Then download and install the very capable, yet lightweight FREEWARE "imgBurn", then refer to the following burn instructions.

Using imgBurn, burn the extracted disk image "Hiren's.BootCD.#.ISO" to CD/DVD (preferably a CD due to the small file size):
  1. Insert a blank disk into your disk burning capable CD/DVD drive.
  2. Launch "imgBurn", then select "Write image file to disc".
  3. Browse for and select the above "Source" .ISO file.
  4. Ensure the applicable disk burner drive is selected as "Destination" (because you could have more than one).
  5. Click the burn icon.
  6. When burning completes, close "imgBurn".
Congratulations! You now have a Live system-recovery boot disk ready for use whenever it's needed.

TIP: From now on, by making known to tech-helpers you have this CD available, you potentially bust wide-open a whole range of diagnostic/recovery options they/you wouldn't have otherwise.


Only you know your level of geek-ability, and the degree to which the following may (or may not) apply to you:
  • This disk contains many tools that if used carelessly has the potential of inadvertantly causing damage/data-loss to your PC. On the other hand, you need not be fearful of it.
  • You're best limiting use to only the tool(s) for which you may have need of at the time, paired with a bit of proper homework, and/or under the direction/guidance of someone comfortable in its use. In a nutshell, don't go "wanderlusting" around, rapid-fire clicking things hastily or thoughtlessly. Rather, carefully read all the available introductions, notifications, popups, alerts, and other textual guidances, and you should be just fine.
  • The benefits of having this disk tremendously outweigh the potential risks. Like so many things in life, know your limitations and have a sober respect for those things which can be potentially dangerous, yet equally essential and pleasing (e.g, electricity, money, love, sax, etc.).
  • Finally, even if YOU never plan on using this disk, the next tele-tech, personal geek-helper, and even skilled field tech may very well have need of it ... and thank you for it.
  1. Ensure the disk is in your CD/DVD drive.
  2. Reboot system [ensure your BIOS boot-order is configured to boot FIRST from your CD/DVD drive].
  3. At the "Hiren's Boot CD" menu, select "Start Mini Windows XP".

  1. Launch (if it isn't already) "BootCDWinTools" located both on the desktop and within the "Start" button menu.
  2. "Menu" > "Passwords/Keys" > launch "Password Renew"
  3. Select the target Windows OS.
As you can see, you have a choice of three actions:
  1. "Renew existing user password" = Resets/changes the existing password for any chosen account/user.
  2. "Create new Administrator user" = Creates a new account/user, with administrator priviledges, using whatever name/password you choose to enter.
  3. "Turn existing user to Administrator" = Gives administrator priviledges to any chosen EXISTING account/user (do NOT choose "Administrator" or "Guest").
After you've entered in the right-pane your appropriate input relative to your chosen action above, click "Install" to execute it.

NOTE: I recommend you perform only the one chosen action necessary to regain Windows login with administrator priviledges. Once there, you can complete whatever further needed password related chores using METHOD 1.

Close "Password Renew", then reboot (making sure not to boot up from the CD this time).

Good luck, and please do post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how well this helped you,
  • if you have any further questions,
  • to provide clarification or feedback.
Today's the best day of my life ... and NOW you're part of it!
Via-con-Dios and Godspeed -- Geekinator (aka Craig).
