Administrator password to login not working


Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 7, and its predecessor, Vista, offer a new layer of security that is different from previous releases, such as XP or 2000.
The earlier Windows versions treated all users as system administrators by default. With Windows Vista and 7, all accounts are treated as limited users.
The User Account Control utility provides elevated permissions when required and prompts users for those permissions.
You can control UAC behavior in Windows 7 so it does not prompt you for these permissions.
Start your computer with Windows 7 and log in as you normally would. Your desktop should appear, and any background applications should be closed.
Click the Windows "Start" orb at the lower left corner of your screen.
Click your account picture at the top right of the menu.
You will be presented with a window that allows you to make changes to your user account.
Click the link that says "Change User Account Control Settings."

Look for the User Account Control options slider.
The default option of User Account Control is to notify you only when programs try to make changes to your computer or you install new programs.
The option directly below that does the same thing but does not dim your desktop.
The "Never Notify" option at the bottom of the list eliminates the prompts for permissions.
Move the slider to the bottom of the options window.
Click "OK."
You may be prompted one last time from User Account Control to confirm your settings and reboot your computer.

Log in as an Administrator on Windows 7
If you've recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7, you're probably wondering how to log in as an administrator. In Windows XP, the administrator account was clearly visible from the log-on page, but it's no longer there in Windows 7.

Although there is an administrator account, it must first be enabled with the Windows command prompt before you're able to use it. Enabling the administrator account lets you troubleshoot problems with programs on your computer.

Click on the "Start" button, and then type "command" into the search bar.
Right-click "Command Prompt" when the results appear.
Click "Run as Administrator."
The command prompt opens.

Type "net user administrator /active:yes," excluding the quotation marks.
Hit "Enter."
Click "Start," and then click "Switch User." Click the "Administrator" icon to log in.

How To Find Windows 7 Administrator Password


Windows 7 administrator password is the password to any account that's setup to access administrator level functions in Windows 7.
There doesn't actually have to be an "Administrator" user account. What you need is the password to any account that can act as an administrator.
You will need to take a few times to get this password. You may need an administrator login password in Windows 7 if you're trying to run certain types of programs or access certain Windows 7 recovery tools.
Follow the steps below to efficiently find the administrator login password in Windows 7!
Difficulty: Average
Time Required: Finding the password to an admin user may take minutes up to hours depending on the situation
Here's step by step guide:
  1. Try leaving the password blank. If there is actually an Administrator account, the password may not exist at all!
    Just press Enter without typing anything when the logon asked for it.
  2. Enter the password to your account. Often times, depending on how Windows 7 was setup on your computer, the primary user account will also be an administrator user account.
  3. Try to remember administrator login password. As I mentioned in the last step, your account might be an administrator account, especially if you installed Windows 7 on your computer yourself.
    If that's true, but you've forgotten your password, you might be able to make really good guesses at what the administrator password might be.
  4. Have another user enter his or her credentials. If there are other users that have accounts on your Windows 7 computer, one of them may be setup with administrator access.
    If this is true, have the other user designate you as an administrator as well.
  5. Recover the administrator password using a Windows password recovery tool. You may be able to recover or reset an administrator password with one of these free tools.
    Note: Some password recovery tools on the list I have in connection with the above change and the ability to set user accounts in Windows 7 Administrator account. This can be useful if you know the password, but it is not an administrator account.
  6. Perform a clean install of Windows 7. This is a last resort option. This type of installation will completely remove Windows 7 from your PC and install it again from scratch.
    If you're just curious about the administrator password, I would not recommend this resort. However, if you need an administrator password to access the operating system of diagnosis and this is your last effort to save the computer running a clean install will work.
    Keep in mind that it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

How to Recover Windows 7 Administrator Password


Microsoft Windows 7 is the latest version of Microsoft Windows operating system. Compare to its predecessor Windows XP and Vista, Windows 7 is more powerful and more secure. Unlike Windows XP, Windows 7 adopted a new password protection system that we can't use the hidden administrator account by default. The problem is that when Windows 7 administrator password lost, we can no longer recover our lost password by using the hidden administrator account. Therefore, how to recover the Windows 7 Admin password if we lost or forgot it?

Don't worry, here are two methods for Windows 7 administrator password recovery:

Method one: Use another Windows 7 administrator account

If you had created more than one administrator account on your Windows 7 computer and you can remember the others admin password, you are lucky. In such a case, you can change one of the administrator accounts' password if you login with another administrator account. What you need to do is just following these 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Click Start -> Control Panel -> Add or remove user accounts

Step 2: Choose the locked administrator account.

Step 3: Click Change the password or Remove the password. And then you can change or remove the lost or forgotten password.

Please note: If you select this method, the locked Windows 7 administrator account will lose all EFS-encrypted files, personal certificates, and stored passwords for Web sites or network resources.

However, if the locked account is the unique administrator account on your Windows 7 computer, you can try the method below.

Method two: Use third party Windows password recovery software

There is plenty of software which is used to recover Windows password available online. You can choose one of them to create a Windows password recovery disk and use the disk to recover Win 7 Admin password. I recommend Windows Login Recovery. Then you can follow these 4 easy steps:

Step 1: Download the software and install it on another computer which has a CD/DVD writer.

Step 2: Run the software and burn the ISO image file into a blank CD/DVD.

Step 3: Recover Windows 7 administrator password with nearly burned password recovery disk.

Step 4: Reboot your locked computer without a password required.

Now you can regain access your Windows 7 operating system and create a new administrator password. The best thing of using this method is that you shouldn't lose any data on your computer. Furthermore, If you can't find a computer which has a CD/DVD writer or the locked computer have no a CD-ROM, You can burn the ISO image file into a USB flash drive and use the USB flash drive to recover your Windows 7 administrator password.

Try these two methods the next time you lose or forget your Windows 7 administrator password, which you do not need to reinstall Windows system for getting back to Windows by removing lost or forgotten password.

Solution for adobe pagemaker 7.0 spell checking problem


For those running Windows Vista, you can enable spell checking in Pagemaker 7 by simply turning off the user account control. This control is what pops up every time you attempt to run a program windows Vista isn't familiar with, asking if you really want to run it.

To turn it off, go to Control Panal, select user accounts and forms, select User Account Control, and in the follow up screen delete the checkmark.

Of course, the account control is there to protect you against unauthorized running of spyware and such. Be sure you have good virus protection!
