You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

I put my cd in to install, and i recieve an error message saying: this software cannot be installed using the 'run as...' command. the installation cannot continue until this is resolved .... i dont know...


Hi,

You will need to log off from the computer and log in back as a user with Administrative Rights to make changes (Install the Printer Software) to the computer.

Alternatively, you could also try to right-click the setup program and choose Run As Administrator.

This will resolve your computer issue.

How do i reset the password when i dont know the original pw?


A password is required to install anything on Linux, in order to prevent any malware or unauthorized users from doing harm. In order to install the program you wish, you will need to enter your password, which is the password you used to log in to Linux. I am assuming your account has sufficient privileges. If you set up an administrator, root, or su (superuser) password when you first booted up Linux, enter that password.

I need to add a registration code but i have to log in as an administrator to put the code in how do i do this with windows 7 without screwing up my computor


hi
by adding ur registration code you mean you are instaling a program and want to put its serial number?

if so, you need to know your local administrator password

-when you log in is there any other user accounts than the on you use try to log on by on of them

- try to run the program that you are installing in administrator mode.
-right click on the installing program that you run.
-choose run as administrator.


all the best

I have a oroblem logging on to my pc even though i am the administrator i cant log on , can i change that and make a new login


If you can log on to an administrator account you can remove the passwords on other accounts. If you dont know the passwords for any of the accounts you can try ophcrack, which uses rainbow tables to recover passwords from the sam files (where windows keeps passwords, encrypted of course) and let you know what they are. High success rate on XP, not so high on vista or 7. For extra added bonus, its a free open source program.

Cant log in windows!


Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.

Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
And yes, Do not forget to rate this solution :)

Srinivas.
