If you can't open as user, administrator or guest you'll have to use a bootable program to get into it.

On a seperate pc download and copy the iso image for Ophcrack. It's an awesome little program that reads the tables of your harddrive and reveals passwords.

You'll have to run the disk on start up, so make sure your computer has the CD Rom as first boot.

Incidentally, it's programs like this that should make people aware of how easy it is to get into locked systems. To protect yourself from bootable hacking software always change the BIOS to run the harddrive first, and then set a BIOS password.

Cant remember password for lap top how do I use command prompt to open laptop without password


magooster857,
You cannot use a command prompt to find the password of your computer.If you made a recovery disk from within Windows you can boot to it to recover your password. You will need to purchase software online to recover your password or reinstall Windows.

I cannot access my lap top because someone changed my password


Hi bojo773...
Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F1,F2 or F8" as the laptop computer starts.(Depending on your computer)
This will start the computer in Safe Mode.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Lap top is locked I cant do any word documents or edit my docements I never locked my computer


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight.

Hi I have K-9 in my office. I want to stop my employee from downloading this uninstall and deactivating the K-9. How do I do this?


Give your employee a "Limited Rights" user account on the computer, and set up an "Administrator Rights" user account with a password that only you know. Users with limited rights are not able to install/uninstall programs without the administrator password.

Did I solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.
