You are happy if the administrator has no password.

If you see joan as username and your need to supply the password on it.

Simultaneously press: Ctrl+Alt+DElete (2X)
Your prompted to supply username: Just type: administrator
leave password blank and then "enter"

hope your in.. If not then you should ask password to joan. or reinstall new windows.

How do i unlock my acer laptop? i have forgotan my password


Reset Acer windows password, you should tell us what the Os do you use first.

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset

If you can not remember the windows admin password, try to reset it with a reset disk. Free download windows password Recovery from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com and there is a .iso file included. Burn the .ISO file onto a blank CD which is so-called windows password Recovery disk. With this disk, you can reset windows password without erasing anything

I cant logon into window xp home edition,and i cant remember user name and password i want to disable them all


HI there. If you forgot your username and password try login with the administrator account. Username is administrator. Usually the password is blank. After that you can reset your passwords from Control Panel, User Accounts section.

If at the logon you use the welcome screen, hit twice CTRL+ALT+DEL, after that you can type administrator in the username textbox.

Please tell me if that solution was helpfull.

Try visiting the Windows Update page.

Previous user apparently password protected Windows.


Well first off you can use the restore feature and it will only reinstall crucial windows files it won't mess with software that was already installed.

There are password recovery programs out there you would have to search for one and install the program onto a disc and boot of it (just follow the instructions)
