Forgot my password for my hp pavilion dv7 administator account


If your account name is only administrator, then you have to get the Ultimate bootable CD, boot from it, it will just boot like a normal xp, then right click on my computer, go to manage, select user & accounts, select the user name, right click on that, select set password, let it be empty, click OK, then done.

But if your account name is other name with administrator privilege then at the time of login keep on pressing the ctrl+alt+del, then in the user name delet the name & type administrator then press ok it will enter inside. To reset your password ight click on my computer, go to manage, select user & accounts, select the user name, right click on that, select set password, let it be empty, click ok, then done.

When iam installing some softwares computer is saying ''the administator has set some policies to prevent this installation''


The message will appear on-screen when an end-user is trying to perform a task that has been set above their user level. The "Administrator" account is a default account created on all OS that grant the user unrestricted access to the entire OS, including the ability to restrict what other user accounts can do and/or have access to.
If you are not the one who setup the system (and configured the settings) initially, then you will need to see that person in order to get the necessary rights to accomplish the task(s) you are trying to do.
Only his/her account has access to modify your account and allow you to install software as per your description above.

How do I logon as administer


Hi,

The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.
To have the Administrator account displayed in the Welcome Screen, try one of these methods:
Method 1: Using TweakUI Power Toy for Windows XP Download TweakUI from here: v2.00 for Windows XP | v2.10 for XP SP1 and above
Open TweakUI and click "Logon" option in the left pane. Put a checkmark against the option "Show Administrator on Welcome Screen". Click OK to close TweakUI. Logoff and see if Welcome Screen lists Administrator login. Changes are immediate and you can use the Winkey + L to switch back to Welcome Screen to see Administrator account is listed.
Use this procedure to hide/unhide any user account from the Welcome Screen. Please remember, you can still login to a hidden account using CTRL+ALT+DEL classic logon method, but cannot Fast User Switch to a hidden user account.
Method 2 - Manual registry edit
  • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList
  • Use the File, Export option to backup the key
  • Create a new DWORD Value named Administrator
  • Double-click Administrator, and set 1 as its data
  • Exit the Registry Editor.
For Windows XP Home Edition While you can configure Windows XP Home Edition to show Administrator account in the Welcome Screen, you cannot login as Administrator in Normal mode. Visit the following link for more information:
Error Message: Unable to Log You on Because of an Account Restriction

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

OK; after giving up on lousy tech support I got it working after doing the following (not sure if all required, but this is what I did)
1. Gave admin rights to C:\Program Files (x86)\PFU
2. Updated to latest ScanSnap Manager V5.0 L21
3, Copied C:\Users\<admin acct>\AppData\Roaming\PFU directory to C:\Users\All Users

Good luck...
