Rid admin. user&password update comp2run faster

Hello. My name is Marie McDonald, and I can be reached at (775) 841-4858 or I have owned my windows xp home edition for about two years. Model # x10-60264 product key: THPGX-7JGQX-69FHG-DKCWF-4D78Q I originally purchased the computer at a garage sale for a good price. Now, my problem occurs when I restart the computer and have to login as a guest. Because I do not know the administrator, or his/her password. I am unable to download programs, delete files, etc. as a guest. Can you please help me to remove administrative users and passwords in order to update my computer and get it moving a bit faster. Thank you very much. Marie McDonald (775) 841-4858

    Have you tried to boot into safe mode and use the built-in Administrator account? If you gave not try loggin into safemode (hit F8 upon bootup) select safemode with networking, login with admin account using no password, should be blank. From there you can create your own account with admin rights.

There are two solutions to your problem. First reinstall the operating system thus wiping out the previous user accounts and thus the administrator password.
Check this out for a fresh intall of win XP.

If you would like there is a way to break the administrator's password. You need to crack your administrator password hashes.

Contact me if you would like some help regarding above.

Access your router by entering your IP address into the IP address tool bar at the top of the page. The linksys address is will be prompted to enter the user name & password. Enter admin for user name and admin for the password. It will probably update firmware automatically and you will now have unrestricted access to the system's utility software including change of password.

Hello! The WRT160N default password is admin, with no user name. If you changed the password and you forgot it you can return to the factory default settings. For this, you just have to press & hold the router reset button at least 20 seconds (it's located in the back side of the router) and then you can log in again (with no username and the password "admin" - of course, without the quotes). Hope this helps!

Default password

Hi hogwrestle,

I believe you are looking for the default password for your D-Link GUI.

Usually for Routers the user Name and passwords are standard User Name is admin and for the Password can be admin, password, 1234 or just leve the password field blank.

Unless your internet service provider set a different user name and password on yur router you may need to call them.

That is the only info I can give you regarding your concern.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day

Don't understand how to set password. please help

Plug the router into the power socket and configure you own machine to obtain IP address automatically. Load up Internet explorer and type in http:/ which is the local address of your router. You should then get a password screen. Enter default user name and password and it will take you to the configuration screen. The full IP address and user name and password are dependant on which model you have. See list below From there you need to read the instructions very carefully and match it with the information provided by your ISP.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe
