If you are using windows Xp this should be pretty simple because many people forget set an administrative password.

As soon as you start your computer put it into safe-mode by pushing F8 until the safe mode screen pops up. pick safe mode with or without networking.

When the Account screen comes on pick the administrator icon. If there is no password there you should have no issue logging in. Then you go to control panel then user accounts and pick the account with the password. From there you should be able to remove the password.

All you need to do after you remove the password is restart your computer and log in normally.

I hope I have helped you. Just let us know if you need any other help.

Please rate my answer.

How do i get my information off someone else computer


If the computer is protected by a login/password screen, you'll need to ask the owner for the login information, or have them create a login account for you.

Forgot the admin password to login to windows


You may have trouble getting an answer to your guestion. I am not saying you are a thief but what I am saying is the password is to protect the owner's files from thieves. I suggest you take it into a computer repair shop like Best Buy and they can vefify your idenity and clear the password.

Login windows 7 embedded administrator


If you forgot the password of the system, the official answer is NO, there is no way to get the password back. However, if you have another user account who has Administrator rights, such as Domain Admin account if the computer joins domain, you may try to use this user account to login to the computer and then reset the local administrator password. If no, you have to reinstall the system.
I don't think you wanted to here this but that is why the admin account is protected. So no one can get into it...

I forget my password


Unfortunately there is no way to recover your login password, it is stored on the hard drive itself. If the drive itself is not encrypted but only password protected, you can bring the computer to Best Buy or any computer tech shop and they can back up the files on the drive for you and reinstall your operating system with a new login password.

I PURCASED A COMPAQ DESKTOP COMPUTER THAT IS PASSWORD LOCKED; HOW CAN I GET IT OPEN?


The only solution is to crack the software.
You can use Ophcrack or PC login. I use that for these situations.

Another option is that if the Administrator account is not password protected, there is a way arround.

Start the computer an repeatly tab the F7 button.
You should get a black screen with white text asking what to do.
Select startup in safe mode.
Afetr startup you will have to click on the desired user account.
Click on Administrator, and if it hasn't an password, you will be logged it.
Go to control panel -->> User accounts and create a new user with your desired name. You can also delete the password protected User account. Note that this will also delete personal files and settings.

After that you can restart and login normal using the new account
