Question about Computers & Internet

I forgot my Administrator Password,cuz I haven't had to use it for over a yr.It would just let me Login without it,but when I added a User Account---it started asking for it.Acer sent me 3 Disks.A System Disk,& 2 Recovery Disks,but they told me that I would have to take all my Data,& transfer it to another Hard Drive first.About a mth. ago,I spoke with a woman,& she said that I could bypass doing that by just doing what she was going to instruct me to do.I was sick with the flu,& asked if I could call her back,but I lost her name,& phone#.I don't even remember if she was from Acer,Microsoft etc.Do you know how I can retrieve my Administrator Password?My Hint was 2nd.I don't have a clue to that Hint.

Assuming you have Windows XP or Vista. If there is another user account with administrator privileges you can log in at this account, and go through settings - control panel - user accounts in order to change the administrator's password.
If there isn't another user account with administrator privileges, you have to download the utility (in zip format) from this link. Extract it and burn the included iso at a cd. Boot the pc from the cd and follow the on screen steps in order to reset password.

    Forgot password and can't login to it cuz haven't used it in a long time


    hold f10 when booting. Navigate the bios with your arrow keys. Find the option that lets you boot into safe mode with the command prompt. Boot it into safe mode and when you get to the command prompt type "net user *" but type that without quotes and instead of the you should type you're user name without the 's. It will then ask you for a password and you'll type in that but it won't show you typing anything. It will ask you to type it again so do that and then boot your system back up and then hold f10 to go into the bios and select boot regularly from the options in there.

    Forgot asus laptop password Windows vista


    Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

    1st Method:
    The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
    Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
    Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
    Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

    2th Method:
    There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
    Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.

    I forgot my Password to the Login of my Laptop


    Have your HP laptop login password forgotten? Do you have another administrator? Have you created Windows password reset disk on your HP computer when it is available? Or whether you have installation CD?

    If you have administrator, just change HP login account to this administrator and access HP computer with it. At this time, no matter which account, you can easily change or remove its password on Control Panel.

    If you have password reset disk, on Windows login screen after you type incorrect password, there will be a message "Reset Password" prompting you to reset forgotten Windows password with reset disk. Just follow password reset wizard to do.

    If you have installation CD, it will help you to restore HP computer or repair computer. But it is still dangerous for us to use it because it will delete some important data on your computer.
    In consideration of data safe on computer, Windows Password Genius provides a safe Windows password reset environment WinPE. With it and in such password recovery environment, you will don't need to worry about data lost or damaged.

    This is a video showing how to use it.
