Hello,
If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer, or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account.

If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator, unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to private information.


Also there is another way you can solve this issue.
- Go to start and run type in CMD
-Black screen would pop up and do this
net user user name *
(user name means whatever ur username is that appears on your login screen)
after this the computer will ask u to type a password so just type any password. Better to type a really short one becasue when you type the password on this screen you won't see the cursor moving or your password being typed in.
Press Enter after typing the password.
It will ask you to retype the password. Again the password would be visible when you type.
Press Enter and it will tell you command completed successfully. If it does not work then retype the commands again carefully. Just make sure u type a short password, probably a one letter password and u wont have any issues.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Please mention which operating system you are using.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then their is no way to get in other than reinstalling the operating system.
In XP their are two ways to change the password.
1st method - Restart the system and when you see the computer manufacturer's name Dell or HP or any other start tapping the F8 button 5 to 8 times. A menu will come. Choose the safe mode option and then press enter on the next screen on selection of the os. Your computer will now show u a new account by the name of administrator. If you had an admin password then u won't be able to get in here either. But most people dont have this so log in to this account and go to the control panel and you will be able to remove the password for your own account. Restart system and you are good to go.
2nd method ( Required only if you have a password for this hidden administrator account )
Boot from the Windows XP cd. When the cd stops loading at a point press Enter on the first screen, then press F8 to accept the licensing agreement and then press R for repair. When the repair process starts and you see Windows being loaded press Shift and F10 together, the command prompt will open up. Type the following command.
net user user name *
(user name means whatever ur username is that appears on your login screen)
after this the computer will ask u to type a password so just type any password. Better to type a really short one becasue when you type the password on this screen you won't see the cursor moving or your password being typed in.
Press Enter after typing the password.
It will ask you to retype the password. Again the password would be visible when you type.
Press Enter and it will tell you command completed successfully. If it does not work then retype the commands again carefully. Just make sure u type a short password, probably a one letter password and u wont have any issues.

There are various ethical hacking software used to test the integrity of stored passwords on Windows machines. I wojnt list any of those programs here, but a quick google search will probably pull up a few good hits. You will have to have access to another computer with a cd burner and a little knowledge in dos command prompt. Good hunting

I can not log in my account i am seeing the message reset your password even then i cant log in


Password problems If you are locked out of your computer because you forgot the password, obtain PowerSuite 2009 or 2010, a utility disc that self-starts from your CD DVD drive when you start up the computer considering the CD DVD drive is your first boot selection. One option of the program is seeking Passwords whereby a search is performed and the passwords located. Once that happens, select the location you used for the lost password and clean it out and remove the CD, close down the system, and reboot. The Operating System will now start up without asking for a Password and you're on your way. Unless you need to use a password for security in your home or office, there is no practical need for one. Go to thepiratebay.se and look for PowerSuite.

My yahoo account has been locked


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

did you receive a notification message from yahoo that your account is locked? if yes, the locking time is 24hours. The account that is locked is due to multiple log ins using a wrong password. and locks after 3 or so attempts.

Wait until the lock time limit had lapsed, then log in again using the correct password.]

You may need to try and log in and hit Forgot My Password if you cannot log in again when your account is unlocked. Do not lock yourself out again, do not attempt password more than twice if you know it won't work. Each time you try to log into your account, it may restart your time and lock it down again during the waiting period.

Do NOT touch it for at least 24 hours.

If you wish to change your password after this period;


Go to yahoo.com

click sign in;

click i cannot access my account;

click forgot password,

click next

Enter in your email address, the security code and try to reset your password. You can also use your alternate email address, or security questions for this.

Then try and sign in again.

I forgot my windows logon password of my laptop. What should i do to get access to my laptop, then?


I think probably the easiest and safest wayfor you is remove your windows password with Windows Password Seeker. I found it at about.com PC support channel last week, and used it to remove the lost passwordwithin 5 minutes. Importantly, the useful tool no need to reinstall Windows. It's worth a try.
