    You might have to restore Windows to get admin privileages restored unless your default admin account didn't get deleted.

Why do i have to change my paswort all the time?


You might have it set to change at certain intervals
IE: at log in or after each restart .......

Disable password log in
On both PC and Mac computers, you can set up your system to automatically log in to a certain user account.
As a result, this setting will allow you to bypass the password login that is typically required.
You should only enable automatic login on your computer if it cannot be easily accessed by other people.

Open the Start menu and click on "Run."
Type "control userpasswords2" (no quote marks) into the dialog box and press the Enter key.

Uncheck the box next to "Users must enter a username and password" and click on the "Apply" button.

Enter the username of the account you want to automatically log in with and then type that account's password twice to finish setting up automatic login.

Click "OK." Password login has now been disabled.
Mac Instructions

Open System Preferences by clicking on the Dock icon.

Go to the "Accounts" control panel under the "System" heading.

Click on the "Login Options" button at the bottom of the window.

Select the account that you want to automatically log in with from the "Automatic login" drop-down menu.
Password login has now been disabled.

Depending on what operating system you have, there are several steps you must take in order to disable the administrator account and password on your computer.
Most often, the administrator account and password are disabled in order to minimize security risks on your computer.
This account is often the target of attack if your system is compromised, as it allows access to all of the data and programs on the computer.

In order to disable the administrator account and password, follow the steps below that are outlined for the major operating systems.

If you are using Windows XP, you must be logged on as the administrator in order to disable the account settings.
Microsoft suggests that you set up another account with administrator permissions in the event that you may need to reverse this process.
Otherwise, you won't be able to.
Right-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and select manage.
Click Users under Local Users and Groups in the left pane, which will bring up all users on the computer.
Double-click Administrator and on the General tab, check Account is disabled.
This will disable the Administrator account and password for Windows XP users.
In Windows 2000, go to Start, select Programs and go to Administrative Tools.
Click on Local Security Policy.
Next, click on User Rights Assignment under the Local Policies option in the left panel.
Double-click Deny access to this computer from the network and then click Add under Local Security Policy Setting.
Click Administrator account under Users and Groups, then click Add.
Click OK to complete the disabling of the Administrator account and password.

In Windows Vista, the Administrator account is automatically disabled.
However, if you have enabled it, you will need to open a command prompt.
Go to Start Menu, click All Programs, select Accessories and right-click on Command Prompt and click run as Administrator.
Open the command box and type net user administrator/active:no. Press enter and you should receive a prompt stating the command was completed successfully.

If you are running a Mac, the Administrator account is enabled by default.
To disable the account and password, go to the Apple menu, click System Preferences.
Choose Accounts from the View menu and click the lock to authenticate with the administrator account password.
Click login options, click edit, and after clicking the lock in the Directory Utility window, click Disable Root User from the Edit menu.

Im locked out of my imac is there a way to reset my account password


If you sign in as an admin, go to system preferences, users/accounts, and change it from there.

Assuming you don't have a back door account, booting from an install disc will give you the ability to reset the password. Put in your OSx disc or flash drive and shutdown. Then power-on and hold "option" until you have icons on screen. Choose your media and you should be able to change the password in a snap.

PASSWORD LOCK AT POWER UP


Can you please elaborate? Is this a the BIOS prompting for a password, encrypted disk password or windows account that is locked out? If it is the last one, try rebooting into safe mode, and you should be able to login as local administrator (F8 after the company splash screen disappears, safe mode option) Once logged in there, right click on My Computer, click Manage. In the left pane, navigate to local users and find the account that is locked - right click -> properties - Should see a checkbox that indicates account is locked/disabled - clear that and reboot.
If that is not the issue, please feel free to contact me with more detail and I can help.

Locked out admin disabled


First, go here and download the ISO.
http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/
Download that program and burn it to a CD-R.
Then put it into the PC with the login problem and boot from it.
Follow the on screen instructions and you can reset the Administrators account & password with this tool.
Its pretty easy to do so I doubt you will have any trouble. Just follow the on-screen instructions.
Then reboot without the CD in the PC and you should be able to login as the Admin with no password.
