    Is this problem at boot, or after a screen saver has started?

    What operating system, Windows XP Home? Pro?



    If it is at boot,and you have XP Home, you can boot to Safe Mode (F8 at boot) then select the Admin account with no password, once logged in, you can got to user management in control panel and reset the password.

I'm locked out forgot password


If you can tell me what the Os do you use, it could be must better.

On XP you can 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".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password reset tool. I recommend Windows Password Reset.

I have a oroblem logging on to my pc even though i am the administrator i cant log on , can i change that and make a new login


If you can log on to an administrator account you can remove the passwords on other accounts. If you dont know the passwords for any of the accounts you can try ophcrack, which uses rainbow tables to recover passwords from the sam files (where windows keeps passwords, encrypted of course) and let you know what they are. High success rate on XP, not so high on vista or 7. For extra added bonus, its a free open source program.

It will only lock you out for a few hours or so, a day tops. Try the "Forgot Password" option and reset it afterward in case someone got into your mail login.
