Your account needs administrative rights, ask the admin person if you can have those.

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

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:

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.

Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top


No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.

Restore and install


Assuming that the machine is running Windows 2000 or XP and has a floppy drive, it is possible to obtaina set of floppy discs which, when booted, will enable you to reset the admin password. There are two flavours: an Open Source (free) version which works perfectly but is not so user friendly as the commercial solution which is easier but costs. There are quite a few solutions out there. A google of "windows XP password reset" will find what you probably need.
