If you have another user account with administrator access you can either remove the password i the user account field or you can try accessing the files of that particular user account and transfer it and just erase the user account and create a new one. vista does not have any backdoor to access using the disk unlike xp

Lost administrator pass and i have only access to my system my wife and i share the same computer. i dont know how but one of us or our grand daughter lost the administrator pass word and we only have...


so im guessing that your problem is that you want the Administrator password back?
in this case, there is one thing you could do. It's called "Offline NT Password and Registry editor" and you can download it here. You can use this program to change administrator passwords, elevate privilege levels and create new accounts with administrator settings. Read up on it, give it a go. Let me know how it works for you.

I can not edit my account information.


Hi there, I would like to clarify If you are the administrator on the computer your trying to edit your account

If you are the administrator of the computer, and If your computer is part of a network at an organization such as a school, government agency, or a business, your organization's system administrator might have disabled or even removed certain settings by using Group Policy. Group Policy is a feature of Windows that lets system administrators manage users' access to Windows features. If you suspect that Group Policy is preventing you from changing a setting that you need to access, contact your system administrator.

OR

If your computer is not part of a network, a user with administrator privileges might have modified Group Policy on your computer to remove access to the settings. In this case, contact the users who are administrators on your computer to modify the settings you'd like to change.

I have an iMac. I want to put parental controls on my daughter's account. I have set up my daughter's account and cannot access Safari from that account


I take it that you have set up the account within the accounts control panel and you have setup the account as managed with parental controls. Click on the account (to change it you will need to enter an administrators username and password). Once in the account click on the "Open Parental Controls) Click on the account and from there you can under system determine which applications your daughter can use. Under content you can restrict what websites she can use. and the other items are fairly self explanatory. The logs can allow you to check what websites have been accessed. Hope this helps.

Unable to update or sychronize with time.windows.com


you need admin\administrator rights to change anything on vista. it is suppose to be more secured than Windows XP.
administrator /user is power user rights, which don't have rights to change system setting, but you do have rights to install certain program.
login into the machine as administrator and provide the corect password.
