When you <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/forgot-windows-password.html">forgot Windows password</a>, did you feel confused that why you cannot reset the forgotten Windows password via standard user or guest account?

Hi ,
Here is how you can unlock your profile account :

2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions.
3. Eject the created CD/DVD and insert it into the locked computer.
4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's BIOS setting to make it boot from CD drive) and then follow the instructions to reset your password.
5. Now login Windows and set a new password.

I get this "Unusual Login


Check that the "secret" questions/answers that you need to use to reset your password have not been changed. Check all your "profile" settings. Change your password.

Im trying to turn to computer on but when i do it say to enter a current password and i didnt put it there


Unfortunately, someone probably did change your settings. If not, the profile could have become corrupted and changed. Do you have more than one login for your computer? If so, log in as the Administrator and create a new profile user and transfer the files and programs over to it.

Unable to login to my user account


Log onto one of the other user names. Then go to control panel and click on user accounts. All of the accounts will come up and you can see if yours has a password on it or not..if this is just a family computer then there should not be any passwords unless someone in the family made one..but a lot of times you can still unlock it or change to no password while in the control panel/users..let me know if you have any problems.

System won't go past profile page..stuck


It seems that the Guest account profile is corrupted because of which you are unable to log in as like in previously.

In the Profile Login page, hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will give you a window where you need to enter the User name and Password.

Enter the User name as administrator and leave the password column blank if you have not set any Password to the administrator account or enter the Administrator password if you have set any.

Now once you are loged into the Administrator account, create a new User from the Control Panel > User Accounts.

Set the required limitatios to the account like limited account or administrator account and log off from the administrator account.

Now, you should have the newly created user account available in the login page. Select it and you should be able to login.
