Log in as administrator, it usally does not have a password on it.

Then go to users and remove the password. Log in as that user and change the password to what you want.

If there is a password on the administator, then write back and we will go from there.

Hi,

You can resolve the issue by restoring the computer to a previous date, to do so,

restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode" from the Advance boot menu. Once you are on the computer Desktop, click Start menu> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Restore and select a previous date.

Once restore is completed, restart the computer, it shold take care of the issue.

I bought a used computer. The computer is asking for password.


Hi. Try to access the windows advanced option by turning the computer on and keep tapping F8. If you see the choices how to boot the system, select Safe Mode then press enter.

Log in as Administrator. It should not ask for a password. Go to the control panel and open the User account of user profiles. Click on the previous owner's profile and delete it. You may also create your own profile while your on safemode.

Hope that will help you!

I Need helpseeting an adminstrator account up on a used computer


Open control panel and create a new user account with administrator privileges. Log off the previous user and logon to the one you just created. Then delete the original user and this should set everything as default for you the new user.

If the password prompt is in a browser ie, Internet explorer or Firefox you will need to remove the addon (sounds like parental controls).

The only way of changing the registered owner would be to complete a fresh install of windows.
