You can try a couple things. You could try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 and then try logging into administrator leaving the password field blank.

If this doesn't work check out this guide:

I set my admin account to limited user and i cant open it anymore..please help to retrieve this user account.thank you..

i assume you are using Windows XP.
try log off and login as "Administrator", if you remember the password. Try blank password first. if it doesn't show in the list, press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice and type it in.
if no joy, you can download this iso, burn it onto CDR as disk image, not data.
restart and boot from this CD, then you have the chance to change/reset/blank any user's password. but take care not to do other thing. follow the author's instructions.
good luck!

I have problem of administrater passward i have forget my passward please help me

If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you don't, try one of the following:

- see this for XP
- or this for Vista/Win7
- or if anything else didn't work you can use third party software from Hiren's Boot CD

I have vista basic & need to add a password but dont know how

To put a log in password on your Vista account you have to go Start, Control Panel and then User Accounts. Click on Create a password for your account link in Make changes to your user account area. Enter the password you would like for your account and confirm it by entering the same password again. You can close User Accounts and Control Panel. Upon restart you will have to enter this password every time you log in so make sure you don't forget it.

I need to reset my sony p seris netbook to get rid of my password

Can you not log in anymore or just want to reset the password?

If you can't log in anymore you need to perform full system recovery. You might need a recovery disc but if your Nb has hidden partition you just have to know the key to access it.

If you can still log in. Go to control panel>
user account and from there you can remove or reset the password.
