The easiest way is to boot with the windows cd and go through the installation. After the first reboot watch for Installing Devices over the progress bar. When that appears press shift+f10. A console will open and then you type nusrmgr.cpl. From there you get the graphical interface for changing users so it is fairly obvious what to do from there.

If you do not have the password you are not getting in. It cannot tell if you have stolen it or not, so it will only proceed with the password that the owner will know.

Pass word doesn't work


If your Yahoo account password doesn't work, you will have to reset the password by using the Yahoo password reset wizard.

To open the password reset wizard, click here

Then on the page which opens, select "My password doesn't work" from the options and click Next.

Enter your email id and also identify and enter the security code displayed in the captcha box.

Now click Next button. On the next page, select the alternate email id or the answers to the two security questions which you have provided while registering the email account.

You will then receive a password reset email from Yahoo on your alternate email address.

Follow the instructions in the email to reset the password. Hope this solves your problem.

I have a toshiba laptop that I have had cleaned by a friend. now it requires a pass word and mine does not work. howdo I set it back to manufacturer standards?

Ask your friend if he has put the password. Another option is try go to CMOS setup if you can & disable the option of password. But this seems unlikely. Open the laptop if you know how to open it. Locate for the reset switch, it can be found below keyboard. It can be a reset switch or just put a jumper across it for few seconds & your laptop will reset. If there is nothing like this, locate CMOS battery. Remove it for about half a minute & put it back.

RESET the password, or if there's an option where you can change your username & password at the same time then do it, If it doesn't work, bring your cp at the store where you bought it & have them manually reset your cp,

I have an old school pc it is an emac and need an password for it can you break it

In OS X, if you're the administrative (or only) user, you can reset the admin/user password using the OS X installation disk #1. Put the disk in the CD drive & restart the eMac while holding the "C" key down (Restart is also on the Apple menu, top-left corner of your screen). When the Installer opens, click "Utilities" then Restart. When the Installer asks you what language, pick one (maybe English?) 8¬), click continue (arrow) then Utilities again & choose "Reset Password"; the system will guide you through the steps. Once you've reset the user password, restart the eMac, then you can log in using the new password. You'll probably want to reset your "Keychain" password to match your new login password – otherwise it'll ask for your password every time it needs one for a program. "Keychain Access" is in the 'Utilities' folder, which is inside the 'Applications' folder.

—> Important: if the old Users Home Folder was encrypted ("FileVault" protected), you'll need the old user's password, or the eMac's Master password to access the files in the Home Folder – otherwise, the Home folder's files will be lost. As a new user, you'll have your own Home Folder & access to all application programs.
