There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.

Without using a software package that will let you manually change a password, such as ERD Commander you will be locked out, and you would need to reinstall the Operating System. BPCS

My windows is in spanish,forgot my password help

If you're under Windows XP you can try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Canc twice at the login screen, a Windows will pop up asking you to type in a valid username and password. In the username field type "Administrator" (without quotes), leaving the password blank. If the Administrator account is not disabled and still has the default (blank!) password, the system will continue to load. Then go to the control panel and delete the password for your locked account, logout from the Administrator account and log back in from the account that was locked.
This only works under Windows 2000-XP.
Or consider using Kon-Boot (commercial) or other similar utilities.

If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account (click on switch account to log in). If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP
- or this for Vista/Win7
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD

Users accounts lockout how do i unlock accounts

If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer, or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account.

If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator, unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to private information.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

  1. Click Start -> Log off (user name).
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice.
  3. Type Administrator in the user name and fill in the Administrator account's password. Leave blank if there isn't any.
  4. Once logged in, Click Start -> Run...
  5. Type in: LUSRMGR.MSC and click OK.
  6. Double-click on Users folder.
  7. Double-click on your locked user account.
  8. Uncheck "Account is disabled" and click OK.
  9. Close "Local Users and Groups" window.
  10. Click Start -> Log off Administrator.
  11. Login to your user account!
Note: If you don't have access to the Administrator account (because you don't have the password), please do tell and I'll give you the instructions on how to reset it.

Iggnore any messages or warnings. Close all that, reboot the computer and you should be good to go. If that doesnt work let me know and we will get you the solution
