Use password recovery software to reset windows admin account or login with second user account and reset password http://www.stellarinfo.com/password-recovery.htm

    Who actually pays for a product to reset the admin password when there are about a 100 Linux which will walk you through the process for free? Also how is creating a normal user account, which is going to be tricky anyway if you don't have admin rights, going to allow you to reset the admin password? Windows does have different privilege levels you see, as being able to subvert the admin account from any other account would probably be considered something of a security were they idiotic enough to allow it. P.S. I believe Hiren's Boot CD is the canonical completely free and so easy only you could screw it up, answer to this question as opposed to dubious commercial product or runaroound from Microsoft who refuse to believe that any other OS exists or could write to NTFS as detailed below. Except in the case where you're using EFS and have multiple domain admin accounts thay everyone has forgotten the passwords too is which case the answer is choose a new career, although that decision may be made for you anyway.

I got the following from the windows help and support:

OPTION 1
Using a password reset disk is the best solution.

  1. If you have typed the wrong password, you'll get a message that says your user name or password is incorrect. When this message appears, click OK.
  2. Click Reset password, and then follow the instructions.
OPTION 2

If there is another administrator account on the computer, that administrator can change the password for the account you can't remember the password for. If you do this, however, you will lose access to any encrypted files, encrypted e‑mail messages, and passwords stored on this account. If you don't have encrypted files or stored passwords, then this option will work for you


OPTION 3

If you don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows. In this case, you will need to re-install Windows.

    Do not always believe everything MS tell you is the lesson to take away from that one. Option 3 is absolutely trivial to solve without destroying your Windows install. See answer above, but please ignore any words that have been randomly deleted from it betweeen me proofreading it and posting it.

I forgot my password for my dell optiplex 740?


I think you are running on Windows vista or 7, in this case you have to remember the Administrative password. Reboot your PC and before Windows logo arrive press F8 couple of times, a list of option will arive, choose "Safe Mode" you should be able to login with an Administrative account. From there go to ccontrol panel> accounts .. delete the account and add a new one.

In case if you forgot the Administrative password you have to hack into the system and delete the account:

Forgot mypassword


If you cannot log on to Windows by using a particular user account, but you can log on to another account that has administrative credentials, follow these steps on how to do the trick:
  1. Log on to Windows by using an administrator account that has a password that you remember. You may need to start WinXP in safe mode.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type “control userpasswords2′, and then click OK.
  4. Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password.
  5. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.

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.
