When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

If that doesn't work, I think you have to use some third party windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Login Recovery.

Forgot your windows logon password????????


So you forgot your Windows XP password? Don't worry - it happens to the rest of us. We're supposed to make secure, difficult-to-guess passwords but sometimes we make them so complicated that we forget them ourselves!

Answer: There are many ways to find a Windows XP password that you forgot!

Try To Guess the Windows XP Password You Forgot
Don't laugh! You'd be surprised how often this works. Before we jump into any high tech recovery methods, try your hardest to remember what your XP password may have been.
Most passwords, even complicated ones, are often inspired by the people, places and things in our personal and professional lives.
Could your Windows XP password have had anything to do with:
  • your name?
  • the name of a friend or family member?
  • a loved one's birthday?
  • your home or office address?
  • a pet's name?
  • a favorite food?
  • a frequently dialed telephone number?
  • something from your childhood?
  • a combination of any of the above?
Use Your Windows XP Password Reset Disk
Assuming you were proactive and created a Windows XP password reset disk at some point in the past, use it at the XP logon screen to change your password.
Your password reset disk will still work even if you've changed your Windows XP password since creating the disk.
Have Another User Change Your XP Password For You
If there are other users that have accounts on your computer, one of them may be setup with administrator level access. This means that the user would be able to change your Windows XP password for you from within his or her account.

Hack Your Windows XP Account With a Password Recovery Program
If you've given it your best shot but that all-important Windows XP password is still hiding somewhere in your mind, then it's time to try something a bit more technical.
Windows password recovery tools are software programs designed to recover or reset/delete your Windows XP password. They can sometimes be difficult to use but if there's no hope of remembering the password and you can follow some simple directions, Windows password recovery tools are life savers.

Still Can't Find Your Windows XP Password?
If you still can't locate your password, even after using the free Windows password recovery programs linked above, you will need to perform a clean install of Windows XP which will erase everything on your PC.
It's drastic and destructive step but Windows XP is serious about security.

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and it is difficult to break into its password..

Forgot the password


Hold F8 on boot up, and boot into Safe Mode. There will be an Administrator account, which you can use to reset your account password.
If somehow the Administrator account is disabled, you can use alternative methods like: this, this and this.
