Hmmm... Shouldn't have deleted your account, especially with the Guest account turned off. Can't you contact the person with the Administrator password via telephone or email to get the PW? That is the only way I know of getting back to your desktop in XP without formatting the hard drive, and I'm pretty sure you don't want to do that.

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?

Within the three types of Windows user accounts, only the administrator account allows you to change another accounts' password. So if you want to <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-password.html">reset Windows password</a> of another accounts, you need to change your account type to administrator firstly. Moreover, if you need to give a user more access to perform tasks like installing software or other system changes, you also need to change your account type.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Steps to Change Windows User Account Type</span><br /><br />1.

Click "Manage another account".<br /><br />4. Click on the user account that you would like to change its type.<br /><br />5. On the following window, click "Change the account type" from on the left pane.<br /><br />6. Select Administrator and click "Change Account" Type to finish your operation.<br /><br />Since the standard user account turn to an administrator one, you can reset Windows password of another accounts or do other operations without limitation through control panel.<br /><br />You can change standard user to administrator only when you can log on your computer with an available administrator account. If you forgot Windows password of all administrator accounts, you'll need to reset Windows administrator password even you can access your computer with a standard user or guest account.<br /><br />Software Windows Login Recovery allows you to create a password reset disk with blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

Reset Windows password to be empty.<br /><br />Now you can log on to your computer without passwords. By the way, you can reset any account's password with this software. <br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Something about Windows User Accounts</span><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Administrator:</span> A administrator account is intended for someone who can make system wide changes to the computer, install software, and access all non-private files on the computer.

But if you want to install software or hardware, reset Windows password of another accounts, etc. the computer might ask you to provide a password of an administrator account.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Guest:</span> A Guest account allows people to use your computer without having rights to access to any of your personal files. This can be useful if you want to quickly allow someone to use your computer.

How to bypass Windows XP password? We often meet the headache stuff that don't...


How to bypass Windows XP password? We often meet the headache stuff that don't know the Windows system password at the critical comment. How to do if you made a Windows XP password that you never be care of it? How should you do when your computer has parents controlled by the XP Administrator password? Or you need to borrow a friend's computer to carry out emergency work, but you don't know the admin password...Let's share some tips about how to bypass windows XP password.

First things first, try the guest account. Simply enter 'Guest' in the user name box, or click on the account labeled Guest. Sometimes people will have these account enabled without even realizing it, and many times they are left without a password. If this doesn't work for you, or you require a little bit more access than the Guest account provides, read on.

Next up is Windows XP's built in 'Administrator' account. This account is created during Windows installation, and is not accessible under normal circumstances. Many computers, especially those that come from Dell or similar companies, leave the Administrator account without password protection.

To get to this account, boot the computer into safe mode. You can do this by holding down the F8 key during startup, and selecting Safe Mode from the Windows boot menu. Once the computer boots into Safe Mode, you'll have access to the Administrator account. Things will look a little weird in Safe Mode, but don't worry, things will be fine when you boot normally again.

Once Windows finishes booting, try getting into the Administrator account, leaving the password field blank. If you're unable to get in this way, then there is a password on the account, and unless you can guess it, you're going to have to try something else, and you can skip the next paragraph. If you're in, then there's no limit to what you can do.

Besides, you can also take use of Windows password reset CD to remove Windows XP password if you forgot Windows XP password. Well, how can you get Windows password reset CD? Just download Windows Password Unlocker and a blank CD, you can DIY a Windows password reset CD in 4 steps.

In fact, Windows Password Unlocker can be used to bypass windows 7 password, bypass windows vista password , bypass windows NT password and so on.

I have a Lenovo A3 series all in one desktop computer and it is not recognizing my password and I am locked out. I put myself on as administrator and the computer was turned off before I backed up the...



first make sure the caps lock if off/on whatever applies the password when you typed it in

Remove a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings

as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

hope this helps

HOW DO I REMOVE THE GUEST ADMINISTRATOR WITHOUT BEING AN ADMINISTRATOR ON MY COMPUTER SO I CAN DOWNLOAD THINGS ON MY COMPUTER


You question is not that specific so i can't give you the specific answer, there're several ways to configure this settings, but it depends on the Operating system you are using. If you are using windows Xp, log off from the desktop and press Ctrl+Alt+Del simultaneously on the login screen (sometimes you'll need to press several times), a small logon window will pop up, type administrator on the username box and if a password was set with the administrator, key in the password, or if there's none, just press enter after typing the "administrator". After you are logged in with the administrator account, go to control panel - user account - create new - and create an account (any username that you want to give) with the administrator privilege (rights) {you should select Computer Administrator}. Again log off and login using the new username and password (if you've set a password). Now with that account, you can do anything with your computer. If it's not Xp then the problem is difficult being without the administrator's rights. If you have another account with administrator's rights, then you can disable the Guest account. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

I put a password on my computer & then made a Guest Acct and i forgot my password. Is there anyway to get it reset or something?


log in as an administrator account then from there you can delete the guest account and create a new one.

if you do not know the administrator account then you need to go into safe mode for the computer. to get to safemode, just press F8 while the computer is booting up until you are given a menu. From the menu, simply select "Safe mode" and then login to the un-passsworded admin account. once you are inside just delete the guest account there and create a new one.
