    (Note: I have not tried this on a profile that does not have Administrator privileges. I would not expect it to work in that case if the permissions were set up correctly. Do, try it anyway, though.)

    PLEASE, NOTE: * The upward pointing carat (^) indicates a space. Strike your space bar one time for each carat.

    (01) Click on the START button

    (02) Click on RUN

    (03) Type verbatim (w/out the brackets): [ cmd ]

    The window will open up w/ the following path:

    (04) Type verbatim (w/out the brackets): [net^user^Administrator^*]

    (05) Hit ENTER

    (06) Type in the password you'd like to set for the account (the cursor will not advance while you are typing)

    (07) Hit ENTER

    (08) Type in the password again to confirm (again, the cursor will not advance)

    (09) Hit ENTER
    (10) Click the [X] in the upper right-hand corner of the COMMAND WINDOW

    (11) Log off the current user account and log in to the Administrator account w/ the new password.

    You can use this process for any user on the system - including the Administrator.
      Try this first  

    This idea is from one of the best support people .

How do I recover a lost password for Windows

<p><b><span>Question 1:</SPAN></B><br> <p><b><span> </SPAN></B><br> <p><span>hello everyone .My niece recently bought a new laptop, and she decided to use a password to log on, but now she has forgotten her password and she cannot log on. Is there anyway to work around this or do we have to have it formatted.</SPAN><br> <p><span>thanks in advance.</SPAN><br> <p><span>From by hulkster</SPAN><br> <p><b><span> </SPAN></B><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Most of us are usually confronted with this problem-forget our Windows password and have no idea what to do. Now,let's get acquainted with this issue.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>1st Method: </SPAN></B><br> <p><span>The first thing which you check if you forget login password. 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:</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press "ctrl"+"alt"+"del" keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -&gt; User Accounts".</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Same thing can be done using Safe Mode.

If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. To know more about it, please visit following links:</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span><a href="">How to create and use a password reset disk for a computer in Windows</A></SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><b><span> </SPAN></B><br> <p><span>If all fails,Simply go to <b><a href="">Windows Password Key</A></B> website to download this tool,it can help you 100% recover your lost password.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>Windows Password Key 8.0</SPAN></b><span> is considered as the best tool to reset local administrator and user passwords on any Windows system.

If ever you forget your passwords on windows XP especially try boot the computer in safe mode by pressing F8 (tap repeatedly during start off immediately when its turned on)...and log onto the administrators account...From there go to control panel and select the user accounts option and change your password form there...Also create a reset disk to avoid problems later on when you next forget the password(which i trust you won't :) )

Good Luck

Our router was working until we let our grandson access the router. Now welost our SSID and our IP

Unplug your router from the computer, unplug it from the power. On the bottom of it, there is a little red reset button. Find a pen and push it in and hold it for a few minute, Then plug in the power and do this same thing to make sure that it reset. Then, hook your computer to it. Click on My computer and type in the address bar. When the login comes on type admin for the login, and admin for the password.
