use that cd to reset the admin password, works only locally, meaning you can't reset passwords that are over the network in a domain controller.

How can I recover my windows password?


You should probably move the hard drive to another computer to be safe and download the saved files you need. That may be hard to do as sometimes windows will lock you out of the Documents and Settings Directory. You can use Vista though to take ownership of those directories and get your saved information.

I do notice that a lot of people that password their computers are a little sloppy when installing windows though. They kind of skip over the initial user login and password for Admin. Try logging is as Admin and use nothing for the password and see if you can log into the computer. A lot of people just hit enter when they see this screen which makes Admin and user with a blank password.

I am not sure what you mean by you lost your admin password.
It does sound to me that the only solution is to format and reinstall though.

If you are using windows XP Home or professional then at the user login screen press ctrl-alt-del three times and a new window will appear just enter username as "administrator" and leave the password field blank.
U may get in the system using this and then u can create a new administrator user.

If u are using some other OS then please specify the OS name.
