Can you boot the computer into Safe Mode? If so go into the control panel and click User Accounts, click Change the way Users Log On and Off. By using the user icon to log on, you might be able to reset the password. BPCS

    There is only one way to reset the password that I know of without reloading the operating system and that is use a utility such as ERD Commander by Winternals, that is if you can locate a utility. ERD Commander is what I use for this problem. BPCS

I need to reset my administrator password or delete it


The Administrator (or Admin) account on your computer is the account that has access to all computer resources and which can perform any task in the operating system.
You should occasionally reset the password for the account to help ensure that its security remains uncompromised.

Log into your computer with your Admin account.
Click the "Start" button, click "Control Panel" and open the "User Accounts" section.

Click on the "Administrator" user account and then click the "Change Password" link.
Type in your current password for the computer, and then type in the new password you want your account to have.
Click the "OK" button, and the password for your Admin account is immediately changed.

Windows Password Recovery is right what you need in your case. The program is designed to reset Windows login password once you accidentally forgot it or have no access to your system. By burning a bootable CD, you can enter almost any computer with Windows administrator login password protected within a few seconds. Here are the step by step tutorial, pretty easy!

Step 1: Download Windows Password Recovery and install it on another computer.
Step 2: Prepare a blank CD/USB and run the software and use it to burn the ISO file to it.
Step 3: Put it into the CD-ROm and restart your locked computer. Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the CD-ROM or USB drive (Start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup)
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and remove your forgotten password.

Reinstall windows, or what you can also use is windows password recovery. You can download and burn on disc from another computer and boot up locked computer with this disc. Another thing you can do is download a program called "windows recovery" and it will erase everything on the hard drive and you will be able to reinstall windows and have brand new computer.

I forgot my adminstative password how do i get a new 1


If this is still the original OS that was pre-installed from the factory and did not put a password on the original administrator, you may boot to Safe Mode by pressing F8 during the boot up and logging on to the Administrator account. Go to User Accounts inside Control Panel and then change or delete the password for the user-administrator account.

I have forgotten my password please help me


If this is a user account you are talking about, just log in as Administrator and re-set it. (If you didn't specify a password for the Administrator account when the machine was set up, then leave the password field blank.) If this is the Administrator account you are talking about, it gets a bit tricker. See these for more direction:

Will not save


Are you logging in as a different user ? Goto START then CONTROL PANEL then USER ACCOUNTS. If you are the only user of the computer, then you can delete all users except administrator. You then can reboot and windows should log you in as admin only. Just make sure you have the proper password. Please note that you can only delete use accounts if you have that privilege. If you don't then you need to goto START, then LOG OFF. Then you can log in a admin but again, you need the admin password.
