Well, here is a tip from someone:

or, you can buy commercial software such as this:
http://www.password-changer.com/

I cannot personally vouch for either one, just some ideas. Google "reset admin password" for more ideas or similar software.

My son set administrator and user passwords on computer. Son has moved out, claims he cannot remember passwords. Computer is locked like a vault. How can I get in?


Restart your computer, first screen, hold down F8, a screen will pop up, select safe mode with the arrows and once that is done, you want to login as Administrator without a password and then hit ENTER. It will get into your computer in the safe mode and now you can go to the START menu n then to the CONTROL PANEL and go to user names and passwords and change your password

My son just set up the computer this morning and now has forgot the password to sign on. We did not save to a memory key. Is there anyway to recover his password or just reset it completely?


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator to log in once you have your computer running again you have to take control (administrator)control panel user accounts on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you can change the password there or if your computer has a system restore you can restore it to an earlier date which will have your personal settings

hope this helps

Passord for home pc will not work what do i do to log in our home computer is a HP and my son set his password but now forgot it and we cannot log in on any users how do i get logged in without the startup...


Try to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete. The screen have to change and a dialog to appear with Username/Password.
Type "Administrator" (without the quotes) for username and leave password empty. Press Enter. If you can log in as administrator in that way, you can force set password for your user account in Control Panel/User Accounts

I would like to restrict my sons internet access on his laptop


You can set these setting on the laptop it self
look at help files per brand of laptop for operating system /Network /policy setting You need to be an admin on the laptop or desktop OR make yourself the admin under control panel user properties
its possible to resrict the use of network to specific times or lengths

control panel/administrative tool/ local security policies IP security

get in there and look around you can set parameters of use and such.

My sons forgotten current password


try logging in with the built in admin account

user: admin
password: leave it blank or try password

if that works go to the control panel/users and reset his password there, log off the admin then youll be able to log back into your sons account

let me know, might have to run a tool to remove his password
