I had a computer donated to the model railroad club I belong to and it has windows 2000 pro on it and we didn't get the adminitrators password, so we can't use it. Is there a way to reset the password?

While starting the computer, hold F8. On the white text on black screen prompt, use the arrow keys to select "Safe mode with networking" and hit enter. This will boot windows into safe mode. By default, there is no administrator password in safe mode, but it allows you to edit all users accounts and remove the password set on the main account.

What is the Windows XP Administrator Password?


<p>Windows XP, the most popular versions of Windows, was widely installed by PC users. Do you remember after you installing your first copy of Windows XP, how long did it require you to realize that you didn't know the administrator password? I vaguely remembered that it was about a week before I needed to make some changes in the file system. It suddenly came to me to be logged on as an administrator, but I do not know the password of the administrator! <br /> <p> <br /> <p><img src="windows-xp-administrator-password.jpg" /> <p><br /> Luckily, Windows XP (both Home and Professional versions) have a "hidden" administrator account which is autogenerate when install. This account usually doesn't show up on the logon screen and most people are totally unaware of its existence. Usually it is ok because we didn't need to user this account very often, only when we don't know the administrator password, need access to the Windows XP recovery console or boot into Windows XP safe mode, the default <b>Windows XP administrator password</b> would come in handy.<br /> <p><br /> What is the Default Administrator Password in Windows XP?</b><br /> <p><br /> Knowing the default password of Windows XP administrator account would be very useful.<br /> <ol> <li>Try to leave the password blank. Simply press Enter without typing anything.</li></ol> <p>The default Windows XP Administrator password is defined to blank during the initial Windows XP installation process.<br /> <ol> <li> Enter the password for your account. It often depend on how Windows XP has been installed on your computer and what part of XP is asking for an admin password, the main user account will also be configured with administrator privilege.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Forgot my Windows XP Administrator Password!</b><br /> <p><br /> Windows XP User Accounts applet in the Control Panel functions is to create a password reset disk wizard. Using this wizard, a floppy disk or USB flash drive can be used to create a specific password reset disk for specific user account on a specific Windows XP computer. The password reset disk can only be used with the computer it was created on and it can also be reused to reset the account's password multiple times. However, you need to know the password of the account you want to create the reset disk for, and you must create the reset disk before you forget the administrator password <br /> Here is how to <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">reset XP administrator password</a> with the XP password reset disk:<br /> <ol> <li>Insert the XP password reset disk to the computer</li> <li>Click the Use your password reset disk item on the XP logon screen to start the Password Reset Wizard. Click the Next button</li> <li>Follow the instructions to create a new password. </li> <li>Logon with the new password.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Didn't Create a Password Reset Disk!</b><br /> <p><br /> OK, if you <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgot Windows XP administrator password</a> and don't have a password rest disk, you won't be able to create a password reset disk anymore. Instead, there are several things you can try to get access to your windows. <b>SmartKey Windows Password Recovery</b> is your ticket. This password recovery tool not only works on Windows XP, but also on all releases of Windows NT/2000/Vista/ 7 and Windows Server 2003/2008. It works by booting from a CD/DVD or USB flash drive and reset the <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten Windows XP administrator password</a>.<br /> <p><br /> <b>NOTE: </b>If you change the administrator password on a Windows XP or Windows Vista system with the Encrypted File System (EFS), all of the encrypted files will become inaccessible. The password for the Administrator account is used to create the EFS encryption key. Changing the Administrator account back to using the original password should restore access to the encrypted files, but I have never tried it.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>If you only need to blank the <b>Windows XP Administrator password</b>, here are the basic steps:<br /> <ol> <li> Download and install SmartKey Windows Password Recovery software.</li> <li> Burn the software to CD/DVD or USB flash drive. </li> <li> Insert newly created CD/DVD and reboot your computer from the CD/DVD or USB flash drive </li> <li> Reset the forgotten Windows XP password, remove the CD/DVD or USB flash drive and then reboot the computer</li></ol> <p>Having the capability to reset <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten XP administrator passwords</a> and regain access to a locked computer can be a great time saver, but should only be tried by an IT professional. you may probably make things worse rather than better if you use sophisticated system or manipulation tools<br /> <p><br /> <p>Article Source:<a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html">http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html</a><br />

MY C:\ SHOWS THAT ACCESS DENIED(WINDOW 7) ON MY HOME LAPTOP. HOW TO REMOVE THAT?


This is almost as bad a lost password, because of the limitations.


Lost Windows password:



  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html GUI interface. There is a free boot CD called Hirens Hiren's BootCD. This one command prompt only.

Do not have password too get in windows xp pro


Do you have another valid administrator account which can normally log on? If so, you can log on as the administrator to change the account you forgotten.
Or,you can think about the Windows Password Reset , it is very usefull and convenient.

At last,I suggeset you to create a reset disk after reset windows password so you will not afriad forgot windows password any more.

Reset password on windows 7


OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.
There was a post on here where someone found a site that could remove the windows 7 password and you only paid them a donation fee if it worked. You might want to google windows 7 password removal for donation and see if you can find it. It worked for this person.
Actually I googled it for you and the links are below: Good luck!!!

It is sad but true that cue club doesn't run perfectly with high graphics card. I don't know why. I played cue club without setuping the drivers. IT ran well. But everytime I set up my agp driver it gets crashed. It didn't happen with only one agp card. I changed at least 10-12 AGP and PCI express. In every situation, I can play the game untill I set up my agp.Whenever I set up my agp it always crashes. Nothing actually worked with me

My dos command & reg edit was disabled by adminitrator,how to solve this problem?


Hello,

First I must ask who is the Administrator of your computer? If this belongs to you then I would suggest making a boot disk with a password cracker on it. Without being able to access Regedit you can't modify the CMD Prompt or anything else. So the only solution is to ask who ever has the Admin password to up your rights or for you to wipe the sam password for the admin account. I don't have a link for the software I use, but you could try out this one. http://www.rixler.com/windows-password-recovery-bootdisk.htm Once you wipe the password for the Admin account go in and raise the rights on your account. That way if the Admin account gets a new password you will still have elevated rights to your account.



Thanks
ArmyMason.

Go to www.loginrecovery.com from a working computer and download the application on that site to a disk. You can then use that disk as a startup disk on your pc that you are locked out of to get your password.
