You can use a program like Windows Password Recovery to get the admin password. It is a live cd easy to use.
When you load it in graphical mode select the windows installition and then select the user you want to reset password.
(make sure you boot from cd/dvd or usb first)

You can get a Password Reset disc download and burn to CD. Copy/paste the address below, into your address bar of your browser.
http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/cd080802.zip
Download this file and burn it to CD. Put into drive and turn on PC, and boot from the CD. Follow instructions, choose the correct USER. & BLANK the password. make sure you say OK to write the data, and reboot. The logon password will now be reset blank.

Why cant I log into home page?


Normally what I do is this:
Turn on the computer, press F8 a few times
Click safe mode with command prompt.
Type in this into the black box: net user administrator /active:yes
Restart your computer
You will now see an administrator account
Click on it, windows will start normally.
Move over your documents from your old account
Once you have everything, delete your old user account
Voila.

Won't login


when your netbook starts up, press f8 and from the following menu, choose to start using safe mode with gui. If you have specified an administrative password at the time of windows installation, use that to log on. If you have not, you should be able to simply log on with the administrative account. Now, go to the control panel>user accounts and create a new user account. Now, you should be able to logon using the new user account. Make this one an administrative/standard account instead of a limited one. When you logon using this account, you should be able to get your data of the previous account from C:\Users\<previous profile name>... You can take backup of this data and then delete the previous user profile to avoid further confusion.

Hope this helps.

My Dell 1750 Inspiron laptop will power up, then my user profile appears, I enter the correct password and the screen says ''The User Profile service service failed to open the logon'' ''User profile...


It seems like the user profile is not working.
You can try to start computer with safe mode with command prompt (by pressing F8 while starting the computer) and then activate administrator profile (by typing : net user administrator /active:yes) in command prompt and after that you can create a new user profile.

Let me know if it will not work.

Toshiba satellite c660-2el administrator cannot log on, user profile service failed to log on, user profile cannot be loaded


Your profile is probably corrupted. You will need to log in another account that has administrative permissions and rename the "administrator" profile to "administrator.old". After doing that, try logging in again to the administrator profile and copying all the data from the old profile to the new one that was created. If you still get the same error or if there are no other users that have administrative privileges, you will need to do a repair installation (Windows XP) to fix this. If you are using Windows Vista or higher, you will have to install over your existing installation to preserve your data, or do a clean install (format) and start new. This is actually a common problem, so don't blame yourself.

When i sign in with my password I get a message saying - The User Profile Service service failed logon - User profile cannot be loaded. I wonder what I can do


Login in as an administrator. There is a problem on the user profile that you are logging in. In order to correct that, just login as administrator. Then create another profile. Afterwards, back up the files that you store in the profile that has a problem. You can access it in C:\Documents and Settings\User Folder (user folder is the profile that has a problem).

The computer won't log me on.


Make a backup copy of all your data, including passwords, emails, settings, etc

Find another windows xp computer whether its a friends or another computer you have and get a memory stick or external hard drive ( which you will need ) on the working computer go into

c:\documents and settings

make a copy of the default user folder and copy that over the one on your laptop and try again.

I rebooted my system in 'safe mode' (which allowed me to login as
administrator), moved my files to the public area, and then deleted my
profile (using the Users option in Control Panel).

When I rebooted again, in normal mode, I could login as administrator, and
then moved my files back and rebuilt my profile manually.

The only problem was my forgetting about e-mail messages, which I did not
backup and have been lost permanently. Ug!!!
