First you will need to enable the built in Administrator account in the operating system. You will find instructions here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/3040.enable-disable-the-local-hidden-built-in-administrator-account-in-windows-7.aspx You may need to start in "Safe Mode" to be able to do the steps required to enable this account. Once you enable then log into the Administrator account you can them go to Control Panel - User Accounts - manage accounts and find your account and change the password.

How to enable the hidden Administrator account in Windows 7 and Windows Vista


Unlike Windows XP the administrator account is disabled by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Many people prefer to have the amin account open just in case they forget their main account password or to alocate admin rights over another user account like your childrens for example.

In the tip I am going to tell you how to enable the admistrator account so it is visible on the Welcome Screen.

These step only apply to Windows 7 and Windows Vista accounts that have admin rights, they won't work on an account which is limited or which is a guest account.


1. Click on the Start Menu.
2. Click on All Programs.
3. Click on Accessories.
4. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. An Adminstarator Command prompt window will open.
5. In the command window type "net user adminstrator /active:yes" or "net user adminstrator active:yes"(with out the quotation marks)
6. to disable the admin account type in the command window "net user adminstrator /active:no" or "net user adminstrator active:no" (without the quotation marks)
7. Close the command window.
8. Log out of your account.

When you have logged out of your account you will see the Administrator account on the Welcome Screen.
If you don't see the admin account straight away all you have to do is restart your computer.

That should be it.

Tip

Enabling Administrator Account in Windows 7


In Windows 7, like Windows Vista, when you install the operating system, you are asked to enter a user name which will be the primary local user that will use this system.
Like in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 the built-in Administrator's account is disabled by default. Furthermore, this account is not associated with any password


The new user which is created during the installation is configured to be a member of the built-in Administrators group, and in fact, can be used for any management task. That use is in fact equivalent by all means with the original built-in Administrator account.
However, there may be situations where one would like to use the built-in Administrator account instead of that "new" user. One of these might be when you're building a system for cloning purposes, and would like all cloned machines to be able to use the built-in Administrator's account.
Note that since that account does NOT have a password, enabling it without properly setting a password for that account will open a serious security opening on your system!

To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Local Users and Groups snap-in please follow these steps:
Open Local Users and Groups. You can do so by typing lusrmgr.msc in the Start search box or in the Run command and pressing ENTER. Or, you could open Computer Management by right-clicking Computer in the Start menu and selecting Manage.

Expand System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users.
Right-click the Administrator account and select "Set Password

In the"Set Password for Administrator" click "Proceed".

In the"Set Password for Administrator" enter the Administrator's desired password twice, and click "Ok".

Next, enable the Administrator's account. Right-click the Administrator's account and select "Properties".

Un-chek the "Account is disabled" check-box. Click on the "Ok" button.


Administrator's account is now enabled and configured with a password.

Dear sir, some one locked my yahoo pasword how can recover my password


From Yahoo.

This message is seen when an attempt to login has failed multiple time. As a security measure, your account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to log in to it. If you have not recently tried to log in, this is not necessarily a cause for concern. Another Yahoo! user may have mistakenly used your ID when attempting to log in to their own account.
The lock on your account will expire 24 hours after it was first locked. Don't worry-the lockout time period won't reset each time you try to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to sign in again after the lockout time has expired. Note: Yahoo! is unable to provide you with the exact time that your account was locked or when it will be unlocked.
If you are still unable to sign in with your new password, please see the password problems help page for some common reasons why you are seeing the "Invalid Password" error.

I can't open my account then i did not change my password


Hi,

I think you can try loading to safemode and see if you are able to login in. Turn off your computer then turn it back on press F8 continously like tapping it, if happen the system running in Windows 7 or Vista. If the machine is running in Windows XP you have to press F5. If happens that youre able to login try to disable the password and do normal startup and see if youre able to login.

Hope I've helped you somehow.

How do I lock my computer from my child without risking me not being able to get back in please? In fact I don't know how to lock my computer in any event.


You can create a Vista password recovery disk to reset your password. Follow this 5 easy steps:

1. Enter a computer that can link to Internet. Search "windows password recovery tool" in Google. Download and install the software on that computer.

2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions.

3. Eject the created CD/DVD and insert it into the locked computer.

4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's BIOS setting to make it boot from CD drive) and then follow the instructions to recover vista password.

5. Now login Windows and set a new password.

Windows xp pro logon error message "unable to log you on because your account has been locked out"


Hey!
If your computer is a part of a business network, you should contact the network administrator so he/she would setup or reconfigure your user account correctly.

If it's a home computer, you'll have to log on as Administrator to unlock your account. To do so:
  1. Click Start -> Log off (user name).
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice.
  3. Type Administrator in the user name and fill in the Administrator account's password. Leave blank if there isn't any.
  4. Once logged in, Click Start -> Run...
  5. Type in: LUSRMGR.MSC and click OK.
  6. Double-click on Users folder.
  7. Double-click on your locked user account.
  8. Uncheck "Account is disabled" and click OK.
  9. Close "Local Users and Groups" window.
  10. Click Start -> Log off Administrator.
  11. Login to your user account!
Note: If you don't have access to the Administrator account (because you don't have the password), please do tell and I'll give you the instructions on how to reset it.

GOOD LUCK!
Pelu.

Windows 2003 Server Login problem


If it is not logging you in it is because the login name or password is wrong (caps lock?) or the account is disabled or locked out or non-existant or you are attempting to log in to a domain that user does not have an account on. Make sure you are trying to log in to the local machine, capitalization is correct and your keyboard isn't inputting multiple characters when your intent is a single one. If you have a different account with administrative privileges, try that one and use it to reset the password on the preferred account.

If you can't log in as a different user, you will need something like ERD commander or http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ with this plugin http://www.bootcd.us/BartPE_Plugin_Details/394/Change-Administrator-Password.html so you can boot from CD and re-set the password for the administrator account. Once you have it fixed, set up a second administrator account so you have a backup account to log in with, that allows you to do administrative things like reset passwords and unlock accounts, just in case.
