If you lose windows Vista password, then you need to reinstall Vista. Use your recovery disks.

Tip

Logon to admin without admin account in 10 steps for Windows 7 .


1. Boot from your Windows 7 Installer Disk.
2. Launch Windows Recovery Environment.
3. Press Shift+F10 to launch Command Prompt.

Type the following inside the command prompt box:
4. copy "c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe" "c:\windows\system32\magnifybackup.exe"
5. copy "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" "c:\windows\system32\magnify.exe" /y

6. Restart your PC and click the "Ease of Access" icon on the bottom left corner of the logon screen.
7. Check the magnify box and click ok. It will launch the command prompt.


Type the following inside the command prompt box:
Note: change the word "name" with the current admin logon name you wish to logon.
8. net user name pass


9. Close the command prompt window.
10. Logon to the admin account using the password "pass".

Good Job, you can access your files that you already thought you lost. And you can change or remove the password in control panel now..

Get past loolst admin password/gateway/vista


You will need a friend and his/her computer to help you with this. On their computer, download a program named " Windows Password Recovery Tool" to a CD. You will need to go into your BIOS to have your first boot item as the DC Rom for this to work. Place the CD in the drive, boot up, and follow instructions. This will erase your Admin password, and allow you to get into the computer. Afdter that you can select a new password, but would be a good idea to write it down this time. Good luck.

I have lost the admin name and/or password on my 2006 imac running snow leopard


Place the Snow Leopard DVD in the drive, and restart your Mac holding down the "C" key on your keyboard. This instructs your Mac to boot of the CD/DVD drive. Once in, you will see a menubar at the top. Choose "Reset Password" from the "Utilities" menu. For more information, please visit Apple's support page: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1274

I have a macbook pro and I am "locked out" from updating software


Insert your Mac OS disk into the cd drive and restart while holding the C key to launch the system on the disk instead of your hard drive.
When you reach the desktop, look for the utilities menu and reset the master password.
You shouldn't need the existing password to do so.

Lost Desktop


You didnt change the administrator, you added a profile. SO all the stuff you were using is still in your friends name. You will have to go in as the administrator under his name, and put all your stuff on an external and log back in as yourself and put it on your side.

1. LOG OUT - Hit apple in top left corner, select log out, it will bring up 2 profiles, go in that way.
2. SYSTEM STARTUP - on desktop in whoever's profile click apple in top left, preference and then startup disk, select your profile and it will go to you all the time. Hope this helps.
