Re: forgotten password

There are about three methods to recover your password:
1.Use the built-in administrator account which you can logon without password in safe mode.It was built when you install your system and its password default as blank.Press ctrl+alt+delete twice in the welcome screen and you can see a classical logon dialog box,type administrator and press Enter.Or you can press F8 when you start/restart your computer to select start from safe mode.
2.Use a password reset disk If you have created ever.Of course it must be created for your current password.You can find a prompt when you input a false password in the welcome screen.Clik it and follow the guide.
3.If the two methods above cannot help you,you can find a recovery tool.As far as I know, there are many password tools on the network, but I have used is "Windows password rescuer professional 3.0" ,it is simple and safe that the average person will use it. It can soon reset the password in several minutes.Only four steps can help you reset the lost Windows password:
Step 1: Download Windows Password Rescuer and install it to another computer.
Step 2: Run it and burn it to a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive.Before this confirm that you have insert a CD/DVD or USB.
Step 3: BIOS setting:Setup your own computer boot from CD or USB.Press F2 or DELETE when you start/restart your PC to get into the BIOS SETUP list.Use arrow keys to select boot manu,and use +/- key to move the CD/DVD or USB option to the first site.Then inset the CD/DVD or USB you have just created. Press F10 to save and exit.
Step 4: Reset Windows password: Wait for a moment,it will display friendly operate window,and you can reset whichever password on it.More detailed instruction refer to this article:

What to do ,can't log on password required

You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.
The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route: Reboot Windows in Safe Mode. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2 Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Good luck!
Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.

You can reset a lost or "forgot Windows password" with 4 methods below:
1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like "Windows Password Breaker".
4. Re-install. Will lose data.

I forgot my Administrator Password

If you have the Administrator user password. Try logging in with it and reset your user password.

If you dont, that's a big problem.

The only solution is that to remove the hard disk for that machine and connect it to another machine with administrator privilages. Guest user will not be able to access the files.

You need to backup all your data to another PC. Format and install a clean windows installation. Move your data back to your original PC.

There is no way to hack around the forgotten password.
