Push F8 before you see the Windows loading screen. This will give you an option for safe mode. You will see a new account labled Administrator. Select that one and you can remove your password from your user account. Go to control panel, then user accounts. Select yours and remove password.

My administer account has a password but i,dont know it


You will need the password to log in.If you dont know the password you can always boot your PC from a CD.
To boot your PC from a CD,insert the windows CD into the drive and then reboot the system.but before it logs in to windows that is before it says windows XP and loads click F8 and then choose boot from CD/DVD drive.Here you will be able to either reinstall the OS or repair the OS.If you reinstall the OS you will loose all the data but you will get the complete control of the system.Hope this solution was useful for you.

I forgot my password for my home computer. Is there away to unlock my computer? If so can you help?


Restart 1. Before the Windows Logo Screen press F8 and select "Safe Mode" 2. Log in as administrator (usually no password required for it) 3. Go to Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Change an account -> Select your account -> Remove password. 4. Reboot and let normal startup 5. Set a new password once you log in.
Cheers!

Forgot password, window xp home edition, how to by pass


Here is a little trick to use that may or may not work:
Start the computer in safe mode and log on as administrator. It's surprising how many people set up their XP computers and password protect their profile, but forget to password protect the administrator account. Once in, you can change your password in your own account.

Forgot password, need to reset


You can reset any user password by logging in using the Administrator account through Safe Mode. In Windows XP Home you cannot log into the Administrator account in normal mode.
When your computer is starting up, hold down the F8 key. This will bring you to a black screen with white text. Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode" and then hit enter. This will boot the computer into Safe Mode, which will look normal except the resolution will be very low. Log in as the Administrator (should have a blank password). Once logged in, open the Control Panel, then User accounts, then reset the password or whatever user you want. Reboot the machine to get back into normal mode.

Cant log on as administrator


Can you log in as:

Administrator
NO PASSWORD

This is the default admin login.

Once you are here you can right click MY COMPUTER and click MANAGE from the context menu.

In the LOCAL USERS AND GROUPS menu... you can open the USERS folder and start re-set your user accounts.

Failing this, get HIRENS... it has a MS password re-setter and you can re-set the admin password and log in.

Try clicking "Cancel" to proceed. If that doesn't help try entering computer name in both user and password fields.
