You need to log in to windows with SafeMode at startup. When you first see the curser flashing hold the "F8" key to enter safemode. Then select safemode with networking. Then go into user accounts from Control Panel and open up your user name file and change the password. Good Luck.

    So you opened windows in safemode and you did or did not change the password?

    Log in again under "safemode" and go to "restore" in programs accessories. Try to restore your computer to a past date BEFORE you had this problem. This will make your login work as is did before.
    Good Luck

How to Password Protect your Windows 7?


Is you computer safe enough? Does your <b>Windows 7 ask for a login password</b> when you start your PC? It should. If not, a logon password must be created as soon as possible. This article will tell you how to make a user login password on Win7. It is easy and usually takes less than a few minutes<br /> It is a big security concern if you do not <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-windows-7-logon-password/"><b>have a Windows 7 logon password</b></a>. Without a password, anyone in your office or home has full and unrestricted access to everything on your PC. Fortunately, creating a <b>new Windows 7 login password</b> is very simple.<br /> <b>Note:</b> If you're trying to <b>create a new Windows 7 user password</b> because you've forgotten yours and can't get in to Win7, see <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/forgot-windows-7-password/"><b>how to recover a forgotten Windows 7 Password</b></a>.<br /> Follow the steps below to create a password for your Windows 7 User account: Here's How: <b>1</b>. Click on <b>'Start</b>' and then '<b>Control Panel</b>'.<br /><img src="start-control-panel-windows7.jpg" /> <b>2</b>. Click on the '<b>User Accounts and Family Safety'</b> link.<br /><img src="user-accounts-and-family-safety.jpg" /> <b>Note:</b> If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply click on the <b>User Accounts icon</b> and proceed to Step 4. In my computer, my win7 user name is Andy. So I click its icon.<br /><img src="click-on-user-accounts-icon-windows7.jpg" /> <b>3</b>. Click <b>'change your windows password'</b> on the <b>'User Accounts'</b> area.<br /><img src="change-your-windows-7-password.jpg" /> <b>4</b>. In the '<b>Make changes to your user account</b>' area of the User Accounts window, click the '<b>Create a password for your account'</b> link.<br /><img src="create-a-password-for-your-windows7-account.jpg" /> <b>5</b>. In the first two asterisk text boxes, enter the password you want to start using. Entering the password twice helps to make sure that you typed your new logon password correctly.<br /> In this example I use my birthday as my logon password. But I advise you not to use your birthday as a new password because it is easy to guess. You should <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-a-strong-password/"><b>create a strong password</b></a>.<br /><img src="create-a-new-windows-7-logon-password.jpg" /> <b>6</b>. In the final text box, you're asked to Type a <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/windows-7-logon-password-hint/"><b>password hint</b></a>. This step is optional but I highly recommend that you use it. If you try logging in to Windows 7 but enter the wrong password, this hint will pop up, hopefully jogging your memory.<br /> <b>7</b>. Click the <b>'Create password'</b> button to confirm your new password.<br /> <b>8</b>. After creating a new password, you will be returned to the User Accounts window. Now you can see the user account 'Andy' has been <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-password-to-protect-your-user-account-on-windows-7-beta/"><b>password protected</b></a>.<br /><a href="http://www.windows7password.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/user-password-protected-windows-7-big.jpg"><img src="user-password-protected-windows-7.jpg" /></a><br /><br /> <b>9</b>. Now that your Windows 7 account has a password setup, you must use this password to log on to Windows 7 from this point forward.<br /> <b>Tips:</b> You may want to know How to <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/automatically-login-windows-7-without-typing-user-password/">Automatically Login Windows 7 Without Typing User Password</a>.<br /> <b><img src="create-a-windows-7-password-reset-disk.jpg" />10</b>. <b>Create a Windows 7 password reset disk</b>. While not a required part of creating a new password, I highly recommend that you do this. A password reset disk will protect you from the consequences of forgetting your new Windows 7 password.

Auto Logon in Windows 2003


Old but nevertheless good. The auto logon can be accomplished by means of Registry modifying, or by use of 3rd-party tools.
To configure auto logon through the Registry follow these steps:
  1. Open Registry Editor.
  2. In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
  1. Create or modify the following value (REG_SZ):
DefaultUserName
and enter the exact username you'd like to use.
Then, create or modify the following value (REG_SZ):
DefaultPassword
and enter the exact password you'd like to use.
Note: The password is stored in clear text, allowing anyone with access to the registry (either locally or remotely) to see your password. Use with extreme caution!
Next, create or modify the following value (REG_SZ):
AutoAdminLogon
and enter a value of 1.
Finally, create or modify the following value (REG_SZ):
DefaultDomainName
and enter the domain name you wish to logon to.
Note: As always, before making changes to your registry you should always make sure you have a valid backup. In cases where you're supposed to delete or modify keys or values from the registry it is possible to first export that key or value(s) to a .REG file before performing the changes.
  1. Close Registry Editor and reboot the computer.
Note: As far as I know, this trick will NOT work if the user does not have a password. It will only work once, but for subsequent logons it will stop working.

I set my admin account to limited user and i cant open it anymore..please help to retrieve this user account.thank you..


i assume you are using Windows XP.
try log off and login as "Administrator", if you remember the password. Try blank password first. if it doesn't show in the list, press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice and type it in.
if no joy, you can download this iso, burn it onto CDR as disk image, not data.
restart and boot from this CD, then you have the chance to change/reset/blank any user's password. but take care not to do other thing. follow the author's instructions.
good luck!

Hi Friends,

Remove the Battery and put back... that's it.

2. Windows logon password :

Type 2 times : Ctrl+Alt+Enter, u will get windows 2000 logon prompt, there type Administrator then enter, obviously u will get in,
