How to Reset Windows Vista Administrator Password with Three Simple Methods?


Have you ever experienced Windows Vista administrator password forgot? Absolutely, there is nothing worse than forgot your Windows admin password when you have a great deal of work to do on your PC. Even though you can enter your computer with a standard user account, you still could not download anything and install programs on your PC. Therefore, how to reset or recover Windows Vista administrator password efficiently?

Here we will show the top three easy and efficient Windows Vista admin password recovery methods to anyone who have Windows Vista admin password forgotten issues.

Method 1: Reset Windows Vista administrator password on safe mode

Preparation Time: about 10 minutes
Pros: Simple and do not need third party tools
Cons: Need an available admin account on your Vista PC

You can reset Vista administrator password on command prompt with an available admin account to enter safe mode first. If you have another Windows Vista admin account, try these steps below:

Step 1: Press F8 when your Windows Vista PC is booting. You will come to the Advanced Boot Options. Then choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt and press Enter.

Step 2: Enter safe mode with an available admin account.

Step 3: Type "net user" and press Enter. The command prompt will show you all accounts on the Windows Vista PC.

Step 4: Type "net user Paul 123" (Paul is the locked admin account's name and 123 is the new password) and press Enter. Now you have successfully created a new password on the locked admin account.

Step 5: Type "shutdown -r -t 00" and press Enter.

Your Windows Vista PC should be rebooted automatically and then you can logon Windows Vista with the new password.

Method 2: Recover Windows Vista administrator password with freeware

Preparation Time: More than 30 minutes
Pros: Free and do not need to change the forgotten password
Cons: The freeware should not work if the password is too long

Ophcrack is freeware for Windows password recovery. This software can help you to recover your forgotten Windows Vista admin password. So that you can regain access your admin account without changing the password.

Ophcrack is used to create a Windows password recovery disk. You need to boot your computer from the disk to recover your password. You can follow these easy steps:

Step 1: Download Ophcrack

Step 2: Burn a Windows password recovery disk with the freeware

Step 3: Recover the forgotten Windows Vista admin password with the disk

You can logon Windows Vista with the old password now.

Method 3: Reset Windows Vista administrator password with shareware

Preparation Time: less than 10 minutes
Pros: Fast and 100% reset the forgotten password
Cons: Not free

Windows Login Recovery is easy-to-use shareware to reset forgotten Windows password, including administrator password and other standard users' passwords.

Unlike Ophcrack, Windows Login Recovery is designed to reset the forgotten password. No matter how long and how complicated the password is, this software can 100% reset the forgotten password in few minutes. All you need to do is just three steps:

Step 1: Download Windows Login Recovery

Step 2: Burn a Windows password reset disk with the shareware

Step 3: Reset the forgotten Windows Vista admin password with the disk.

These three Windows Vista administrator password recovery solutions are helpful for us to resolve the Vista admin password lost problem. Now, you are no more Vista admin password forgot matters.

Hi
Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

I carnt unlock the code


if your using windows xp you can do the following:

#1 boot into safe mode (press F8 before windows starts),

#2 log onto the account named "administaor" NOT your normal account

#3 go into control panal and remove password from user account settings.

I cant remember how many times iv forgot my password and had to do this. that or reinstall windows but i dont think anyone wants that joy.

If you lost the admin password then you need to look down the hacking route or send your computer in to where you bought it im afraid

I dust my coputer out .


Hello....Thats definitly a windows password!! you most likely hit the hibernate button and put in sleep mode. It's very easy to get pass previous passwords with XP (Home or Pro)

There is a boot disk you can download at:
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

that will let you reset the password of any account on NT4, Windows2000 or XP. Just follow all the default settings which are for the admin account. Used it many times with great success.
They also have a bootable CD image you can download.

I have a router by "Linksys Wireless 2.4 GHz". I need to password protect my wireless connection - I received a notice from Charter Communications that I had violated a copyright by downloading a movie - I...


yep, someone is piggybacking off your router. I found a kid last week doing the same thing. Go into the router control panel, type this into your address bar 192.168.1.1 ,that should get you into the first screen for your router, then Log in, if you never changed the password go to the second line and type admin into the second line, that should take you to the setup page, click on wireless, you will then see a panel that shows your connection status. Change the encryption to wep or wpa,1 or 2, it's just going to encrypt the signal. You will see a key that is quite long, you can change that to a ten digit or more number that you will remember. You will have to go into each machine that is in your network, and type in the new key that you made along with the wep or wpa encryption you changed it to. That is it you no longer have an open connection nor a shared connection. Just remember that if you use a WiFi phone or anything else wifi, it will automatically ask for the "KEY" from now on. That's just the way life is now, kids don't consider it stealing. You need to do this right away, anyone who is hacking into your network, could easily obtain access to your files passwords etc, with very little skill, also change the "admin" default password on the router log in page, and write everything down or you won't be able to get in without reseting everything, good luck
