What is the Windows XP Administrator Password?


<p>Windows XP, the most popular versions of Windows, was widely installed by PC users. Do you remember after you installing your first copy of Windows XP, how long did it require you to realize that you didn't know the administrator password? I vaguely remembered that it was about a week before I needed to make some changes in the file system. It suddenly came to me to be logged on as an administrator, but I do not know the password of the administrator! <br /> <p> <br /> <p><img src="windows-xp-administrator-password.jpg" /> <p><br /> Luckily, Windows XP (both Home and Professional versions) have a "hidden" administrator account which is autogenerate when install. This account usually doesn't show up on the logon screen and most people are totally unaware of its existence. Usually it is ok because we didn't need to user this account very often, only when we don't know the administrator password, need access to the Windows XP recovery console or boot into Windows XP safe mode, the default <b>Windows XP administrator password</b> would come in handy.<br /> <p><br /> What is the Default Administrator Password in Windows XP?</b><br /> <p><br /> Knowing the default password of Windows XP administrator account would be very useful.<br /> <ol> <li>Try to leave the password blank. Simply press Enter without typing anything.</li></ol> <p>The default Windows XP Administrator password is defined to blank during the initial Windows XP installation process.<br /> <ol> <li> Enter the password for your account. It often depend on how Windows XP has been installed on your computer and what part of XP is asking for an admin password, the main user account will also be configured with administrator privilege.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Forgot my Windows XP Administrator Password!</b><br /> <p><br /> Windows XP User Accounts applet in the Control Panel functions is to create a password reset disk wizard. Using this wizard, a floppy disk or USB flash drive can be used to create a specific password reset disk for specific user account on a specific Windows XP computer. The password reset disk can only be used with the computer it was created on and it can also be reused to reset the account's password multiple times. However, you need to know the password of the account you want to create the reset disk for, and you must create the reset disk before you forget the administrator password <br /> Here is how to <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">reset XP administrator password</a> with the XP password reset disk:<br /> <ol> <li>Insert the XP password reset disk to the computer</li> <li>Click the Use your password reset disk item on the XP logon screen to start the Password Reset Wizard. Click the Next button</li> <li>Follow the instructions to create a new password. </li> <li>Logon with the new password.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Didn't Create a Password Reset Disk!</b><br /> <p><br /> OK, if you <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgot Windows XP administrator password</a> and don't have a password rest disk, you won't be able to create a password reset disk anymore. Instead, there are several things you can try to get access to your windows. <b>SmartKey Windows Password Recovery</b> is your ticket. This password recovery tool not only works on Windows XP, but also on all releases of Windows NT/2000/Vista/ 7 and Windows Server 2003/2008. It works by booting from a CD/DVD or USB flash drive and reset the <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten Windows XP administrator password</a>.<br /> <p><br /> <b>NOTE: </b>If you change the administrator password on a Windows XP or Windows Vista system with the Encrypted File System (EFS), all of the encrypted files will become inaccessible. The password for the Administrator account is used to create the EFS encryption key. Changing the Administrator account back to using the original password should restore access to the encrypted files, but I have never tried it.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>If you only need to blank the <b>Windows XP Administrator password</b>, here are the basic steps:<br /> <ol> <li> Download and install SmartKey Windows Password Recovery software.</li> <li> Burn the software to CD/DVD or USB flash drive. </li> <li> Insert newly created CD/DVD and reboot your computer from the CD/DVD or USB flash drive </li> <li> Reset the forgotten Windows XP password, remove the CD/DVD or USB flash drive and then reboot the computer</li></ol> <p>Having the capability to reset <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten XP administrator passwords</a> and regain access to a locked computer can be a great time saver, but should only be tried by an IT professional. you may probably make things worse rather than better if you use sophisticated system or manipulation tools<br /> <p><br /> <p>Article Source:<a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html">http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html</a><br />

What to do if you forget your password on your computer.


Many people don't realize that if you forget your password to your account on your computer you can still get into your computer. Most of the time people panic about it and take it to a technician to get the problem fixed. Or they just don't care about loosing their information and just reformat. Well I know how to get access back to your computer really easily. All you have to do is just press f8 when you turn on you computer and wait for a screen to appear to how you want the computer to boot. Then go to safe mode and wait for the computer to get booted. Once it is and the log on screen appears click on administrator. Once you are logged into the account you can go to user accounts in the control panel then click on your account and then remove the password. If you have a password on the administrator account and forgot what it was there is one other easy way to fix this. All you have to do is just put in your os cd then just do a repair install this keeps all your data and it removes the password from the administrator account. Or if all else fails just use a password removing boot cd: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/gr/offlinentpwed.htm

I forgot my password to my dell latitude i need to restore it back to factory setttins i already have it took apart


Are you restoring back to Factory Setting simply because you forgot the password? Please tell me NO. If so, that is not what you want to do. Resetting to Factory Settings will cause you to lose all your documents, music, pictures & videos unless you have them backed up somewhere outside of the computer. If all you need is the password removed, try turning off your machine, then turn it on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let it boot. When the log in screen appears you will see the account for which you forgot the password and the Administrator account. Select the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it also). If you log in successfully with the Administrator account click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When you are in the User Accounts select the account for which you forgot the password, then select the option to Remove Password. Now reboot your machine.

I turned it off and forgot the password to turn it


If you've never set an administrator password, press and hold the power button to turn off the computer. Then, start it up, this time pressing F8 during the startup sequence. You'll get a screen with options to start up. Select Safe Mode, once the computer boots up, you'll select the administrator icon to log on. Like I said before, if you've never set the administrator password, then you should be able to hit enter. Once the computer finishes booting up, select control panel in the start menu and choose users. You can select your user name and reset your password from there. After this, you should set a password for the administrator account so that it is protected from hackers. Reboot your computer and log-on with your new password.
