Hi - This is probably because of one of two things: when the software was installed it asks do you want to install it for all users? Somebody might have goofed up. You can try two things. Go to your control panel and then user accounts. Click on the second person's account and see if they have administrator rights. If not you can change it so they do. While in user accounts click on change an account. Then add computer administrator to the second account. Another thing to try, is right click on the program you use to burn cds, click on properties, click on advanced and then check the box marked run with different credentials. See if one of these work. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate as fixed. If not just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Wont let me access desktop without entering my administrative password


Here is a simple way to access Windows XP with Administrator rights and privileges if you have password protected your User account on your Windows XP system and can't remember the password(s) to login. Whenever Windows XP is installed on a system, it creates a default account called "Administrator" and by default this account is not password protected. Therefore, if you bought a brand name computer (such as Dell, HP, Compaq or Sony)or you have installed Windows XP yourself. You should be able to login to the computer through theunprotected Administrator account.

You can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account. To do this, try Method 1.

Method 1: Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch on until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.

Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.

Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (e.g. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.


If Method 1 is unsuccessful try Method 2.

Method 2: Reset Windows Password with SmartKey Windows Password Recovery.

Download SmartKey Windows Password Recovery from SmartKey Password Recovery Official site

Decompress the SmartKey Windows Password Recovery and note that there is an.ISO image file. Burn the image file onto a blank CD with the burner.

Insert the newly created CD into the locked computer and re-boot it from the CD drive.

Boot the PC with the CD Rom and Run the SmartKey, a window pop up with all your account names(if you have several accounts) select one of the accounts that you have forgotten its password to reset it. Just one press, you have removed the password.

I can't log in


Hey there - Try booting into safe mode (hold F8 during boot up) choose the safe mode option. This should bring the administrative account available at the login screen. Hopefully you have not password protected it. If you can log into that account you can remove/change the password settings for the your account under the "users" in the control panel settings.

NOTE* This fix assumes you're operating in Windows XP

Hi I have a problem. I forgot my password to log in and need to reset my password on my laptop. I didn't create a password reset disk, so I can't use a USB flash drive to reset it.


If you have Win XP, when you start up your computer, hold down the F8 key. A boot menu will appear. Select Safe Mode. If you click your user name, an "administrator" user will appear in the list of users on your system. If you type in your user name, type "administrator", there is no password required. Once you are logged in as administrator, go to the User control panel and click your normal user name and click change password, create a password and you'll all set. If you use Win Vista, there is no way to recover your password. If you have system restore discs, use them to restore your system, remember, all your personal files will be lost and your computer will return to its original factory default settings.
