    Won't this delete any recent work done on the pc?

  • nrthnsth Aug 27, 2008

    I tried the system restore only to get warning box saying "access denied. You do not have administator privillages to perform this task".

When was the last time you accessed your computer as the administrator with your old password? You can do a system restore to before that time. You won't lose any data. Just go to Start>all Programs>Accessories>system tools>system restore and set a restore point ( a day and time) when you know that it was on your old password. Then go back and choose that time you just set and restore your computer to that time

Get your hands on the special iso image called Ultimate Boot CD 4 Windows. Burn a CD with it. Boot your computer with this CD and all of the C driver will be available. At this point you can copy out all the data you need from the profile you don't have access to a profile you have access.

On Windows XP you can try this trick:

On Vista, you can boot from the Vista DVD and run system restore to a time you had the old password (providing you can remember that one )

Hi

If you have forgotten your password to log on to windows then you will not be able to log on to your profile as this needs your windows password.

If you have a sepreate administration account on the laptop you can log on with this make another user account to log on, log on with this account to create your new profile then log off, back on as admin, you should then have access to the users folder and with admin rights you should have access to copy your stuff from the old user profile to the new one.

Why i cannot open my facebook?


Facebook has become a daily or near-daily habit for many people all over the world: People spend more than 700 billion minutes every month on the site, talking to friends, playing games and sharing information. While signing up with Facebook is simple, sometimes accessing an existing account can prove to be problematic. This can occur for a variety of reasons.
1.Incorrect Password
Facebook users who attempt to log into the site with an incorrect password will not be able to access their account until they go through the password recovery process. Users can recover their Facebook password by clicking the "Forgot Your Password?" link underneath the password login field. Users must enter their Facebook email address, linked mobile phone number, Facebook username, or their name and a friend's name. Following information entry, users can click the "Search" button to identify their account and have the password reset to a new password of the user's choice.
2.Incorrect or Forgotten Email
Facebook users who provide an incorrect email address will be unable to log into the site. Since an email address must be entered exactly as it appears on the email account, including any capital or lowercase letters, numbers and special symbols, an incorrect email login may be as simple as an accidental lowercase letter or a forgotten underscore. Facebook users should check their email address to ensure that no mistakes of this nature have occurred before login.
If a user has forgotten the email address used for their Facebook account, Facebook suggests the following options for email address recovery: Try to log in with a username if one was registered, try to log in using a mobile phone number if one is linked to the account, try locating the account on the "Password Reset" page, or ask a Facebook friend to view the account and find the email address listed on the profile. If none of these options work, Facebook suggests using any option on the "Recover Your Account" page.
3.Cache Or Cookies Problems
Facebook users who are unable to log in may be having a cache or cookies problem. To fix these type issues, users should clear the cache and cookies on the computer or mobile device, enter "m.facebook.com" as a URL rather than using previously established bookmarks or links, then log in as usual.
4.Account Disabled by Facebook
Facebook seeks to keep its site populated with real people, rather than fake profiles. As Facebook states, "Since accounts that impersonate anyone or anything can damage the integrity of this environment, Facebook doesn't allow fake profiles for celebrities, pets, ideas or inanimate objects." If your profile is deemed to be a potential fake profile, the account may be disabled by Facebook. When this occurs, the user will get a message upon attempted login that provides a link to the "Confirm Your Identity" page. This page provides possible reasons that the account may have been disabled. In some cases, it is due to the user not confirming an identity via a phone number.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

How do I change my yahoo mail log-in password?


If you have forgotten your password, just go to mail.yahoo.com and click on "I can't access my account" below the login area and follow the instructions.

If you can still access your account, sign in with your old password, then click on the little black carrot next to your name in the upper left of your screen. You'll see three options... profile, contacts, and account info. Click on account info. You will probably be prompted for your password again. This will bring you to an account info page. Click on change password under the Sign-In and Security heading.

Do the following:

1. Log out of your friends FaceBook account.
2. Log in to your FaceBook account.

When you are finished using FaceBook then:

1. Log out of your FaceBook account.
2. Get your friend to Log in to their FaceBook account.

Your log in will be your Email Address (or User Name you created) and your Password.

NOTE: if you have forgotten your passwords or email accounts, OR your friend has forgotten theirs.

THEN (your friend will need to check their profile information) before they log off. In the Profile, they will find what email address is listed as being the current one. (You can supply more than 1.)

I hope this information is useful to you. Please rate. Regards
