As Administrator, you have all rights. To change use, go to Control Panel, Users Accounts. All users are listed including the administrator. If your account is passworded and you cannot get into the account, your password may have been changed or forgotten. If so try Here.

Starting your computer in SAFE MODE. On restart, as soon as the BIOS screen appears, then hit the F8 key, several times softly is okay. Safe Mode selection screen will appear.

Good luck

If you are using Windows then the moment you switch on the PC (the power on switch) press the function key F8. Press it a few times just in case you start off too early. Actually it should be pressed the moment the HDD starts spinning on boot up. A black and white page will appear giving out all the options. One of them is Safe Mode. Select and press enter key.

I can log on but cant download any thing without password


Most likely it's asking for an administrator password. Visit this tip for a step-by-step instructional and video for how to reset it.

Once you have it reset, login with the administrator account (if you're on XP; you may have to display it, the option is under "Users" in the control panel) and change your user account to an administrator to prevent this from happening in the future. This can be done under Users in the control panel, change type of account from "limited" to "Administrator".

How do i login on as administrator on my computer?


Login With the Administrator Account in Windows XP Professional

Click the "Start" menu and then click "Log Off."

Click "Switch User" when the prompt screen opens.

Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete."

Click on "Administrator" when the "Log on to Windows" screen pops up. Type in the administrator password, if applicable.

Click "OK." You will now be logged in as the administrator.



Log On as An Administrator in Windows Vista

Start your computer and allow it to continue through its startup process. By default your computer will simply load directly to the primary user account (usually the administrator account), but if there are multiple users on the system it will load to the account login screen.

Use the mouse to click on the administrator account from the list of available accounts to log on. This step is only necessary if you've customized Windows Vista with more than one account or you have set the operating system to load the login screen first.

Enter the password required in the password field to log on to the administrator account.

Click the "OK" or "Log On" button once you have entered the password. This button may be labeled differently depending on the version of Windows Vista or any GUI (graphical user interface) changes you may have made.
Log on as an administrator from within the Windows Vista environment by clicking on "Start" and then "Log Off." As soon as you have logged off, you will be returned to the login screen where you can choose the administrator account from the available list.

How To Find Windows 7 Administrator Password


Windows 7 administrator password is the password to any account that's setup to access administrator level functions in Windows 7.
There doesn't actually have to be an "Administrator" user account. What you need is the password to any account that can act as an administrator.
You will need to take a few times to get this password. You may need an administrator login password in Windows 7 if you're trying to run certain types of programs or access certain Windows 7 recovery tools.
Follow the steps below to efficiently find the administrator login password in Windows 7!
Difficulty: Average
Time Required: Finding the password to an admin user may take minutes up to hours depending on the situation
Here's step by step guide:
  1. Try leaving the password blank. If there is actually an Administrator account, the password may not exist at all!
    Just press Enter without typing anything when the logon asked for it.
  2. Enter the password to your account. Often times, depending on how Windows 7 was setup on your computer, the primary user account will also be an administrator user account.
  3. Try to remember administrator login password. As I mentioned in the last step, your account might be an administrator account, especially if you installed Windows 7 on your computer yourself.
    If that's true, but you've forgotten your password, you might be able to make really good guesses at what the administrator password might be.
  4. Have another user enter his or her credentials. If there are other users that have accounts on your Windows 7 computer, one of them may be setup with administrator access.
    If this is true, have the other user designate you as an administrator as well.
  5. Recover the administrator password using a Windows password recovery tool. You may be able to recover or reset an administrator password with one of these free tools.
    Note: Some password recovery tools on the list I have in connection with the above change and the ability to set user accounts in Windows 7 Administrator account. This can be useful if you know the password, but it is not an administrator account.
  6. Perform a clean install of Windows 7. This is a last resort option. This type of installation will completely remove Windows 7 from your PC and install it again from scratch.
    If you're just curious about the administrator password, I would not recommend this resort. However, if you need an administrator password to access the operating system of diagnosis and this is your last effort to save the computer running a clean install will work.
    Keep in mind that it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

How to reset windows xp perfessional password


Here's how to reset your password:
  1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up.
  2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
  3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
  4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
  5. All done, you have recovered the lost password
Hope you'll have it resolved soon :-)

Log In password lost


There a couple things you can try.
1.Since the true Administrator is disabled by default, if you only had one
"administrative" user account created and you've forgotten the password
to it, try starting the computer
in Safe Mode. Supposedly this will
enable the built-in Administrator account for the one session. The
default password may be a blank. Get into Safe Mode by repeatedly
tapping the F8 key as the computer is starting up. If this works for
you, create at least a few extra user accounts for emergencies. I
usually create at least three accounts on client machines: one standard
user for every day work, two administrative users for emergencies.

2. Go to this site: http://www.password-changer.com/ download the free demo and this will help you fix the password.

Acer Aspire M1100 Desktop - lost password, can't login in User Login. Is there a way to bypass the password?


If you're having trouble logging into Windows, you can attempt to use the Administrator account to edit/remove the password of the user login. The Administrator account is hidden by default while in normal mode. You'll need to boot the PC into Safe Mode and login as the Administrator account. Follow the below steps:

  1. Reboot the PC and before the Windows boot screen appears, tap the F8 key about once per second.
  2. Eventually you'll be faced with a screen asking you how you want to boot Windows. Select Safe Mode.
  3. You will see some dll, sys, and com files scrolling down your screen, this is normal. Eventually the PC will boot up and you'll have a login screen with your User Account(s) and a new account, Administrator. Select Administrator.
  4. As long as you haven't, in the past, altered the password for the Administrator account, you should be able to simply click this account and have it log you in. If it requests a password, you might try "password" (without quotes) for the password.
  5. Once in, Navigate to Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts
  6. Select the User Login information that you're not able to log into and remove the password for the account or change it something you know.
You can now reboot the PC normally and be able to log into this account without a password or with the password you created.
