I forgot my password and I can only log in as a guest


You can try the below given steps to reset administrator password using guest account (you must have write access to system32 file):





1. Navigate to location C:/windows/system32



2. Copy cmd.exe file to desktop and rename it to sethc.exe



3. Now copy this sethc.exe file and paste to system 32 (when windows asks for overwriting click yes).



4. Log out from guest account and at user login screen press shift key 5 times.



5. It will open command prompt with full administrator privileges.



6. Now type "NET USER ADMINISTRATOR xyz123" (where "xyz123" can be any password according to your choice) and press enter.



7. You will see "The Command completed successfully" and then exit the command prompt and login into administrator with your new password.



If you don't have write access to system32 file then you can use stellar phoenix password recovery software to reset administrator password.

How do you get out of the adminstrator and get to your files


  1. Administrator is the top user and should have access to all user files, but try Start > Log Off (current user). Then login with desired user.
  2. You can also Manage Users by clicking on user icon at top of start menu, or going to Control Panel > User Accounts. This is where you would manage / verify users and type of account (guest). Must be administrator!
  3. Then there is the rights option (right click file> Security), but only use if you can't login with other account. This option is risky. Again you have to the administrator or owner.

How do I reset the password on the windows 7 home page


Windows has a built-in security system that requires a user to type in a password to get to his personal account.
Only an "Administrator" account holder can make software changes to the computer.
All other users, including Guest users, need the permission of an Administrator to make any system changes.
However, if you have a guest account and need to access the Administrator account to make changes, you can do so via the Command Prompt feature.
Log in to your Guest account in Windows.
Go to "Start" > "Search" and type in "windows/system32/cmd.exe" to find the Command Prompt feature.
When the file appears on the search menu, drag it to your desktop.
Leave the search window open.

Right-click the cmd.exe file on your desktop and choose "Rename."
Type "sethc.exe" for the new name and click on an empty area next to the file name to save the new name.
Right-click on the "sethc.exe" file and click on "Copy."
Go back to the open "windows/system32" folder and right-click anywhere in the folder.
Select "Paste" to put the "sethc.exe" file inside.
Choose "Yes" when asked if you want to overwrite the current file.
Go to "Start" > "Log Off." It will bring you back to the User Account menu.
Press the "Shift" key 5 times in a row.
The Command Prompt will open.
Type "net user administrator [password]" and insert a new password in the [password] section.
Press "Enter" to set your new password.
It will bring you back to the User Accounts menu.
Click on the Administrator User Account and type the password you just set to log in to the account.

When someone uses my computer, are their benchmarks saved to my computer's hardrive or to the individual own password


Hi

Thank you for your query

If you have independant user account set out i.e. Administrator, guest etc then each person's usage will be saved to their account, so if someone uses a guest account then their files will be saved to the guest accouni. If you are the administrator then your settings wil be saved to the administrator account

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

I whent to control panel changed password it opened the windows but only parts i can use.i can not download or go to programs.it keeps asking for administrator.can only open this


hi ,
Obviously you have logged on as a guest user which restrict you from entering other files in the PC .
go back to the user icon on the control panel and log on as the administrator and you will be able to access all files .

Need to set up a second user on my laptop


click on START, choose control panel, click on user accounts near the bottom of choices, and set up a 'guest account'. Or another user with personal icon and password. assuming you have the 'administrator' passworded access to the laptop. your 'guest', or new non-administrative access member will have no rights to access your private files, unless you choose to share them. this is for XP.
good luck!

I forgot my Administrator Password


If you have the Administrator user password. Try logging in with it and reset your user password.

If you dont, that's a big problem.

The only solution is that to remove the hard disk for that machine and connect it to another machine with administrator privilages. Guest user will not be able to access the files.

You need to backup all your data to another PC. Format and install a clean windows installation. Move your data back to your original PC.

There is no way to hack around the forgotten password.
