Log into Safe Mode.

On startup, press F8. This will give you the 'bootup' selections for starting your computer.
Select Safe Mode. If you can get in, Press <CTRL> <ALT> <DELETE> and select 'Change Password'.

If this doesn't work, see if you can find someone that has a program called ERD Commander. This program will let you boot to the system and reset the administrator password.

If you want to log in as administrator, keep hitting F8 when the computer starts. You'll find Advanced Boot Options. Select Safe Mode from there. When it goes into windows, you'll find administrator in the user list.

For got password to login in how do i fix this


brendapace3,
What are you trying to login into? Your Windows computer or a website?

If you are trying to log into your computer and forgot the password.
Try starting in Safe Mode, by restarting the computer, and as soon as you see the Computers Manufacturers logo start pressing F8 on the keyboard. Select Safe Mode from the options (usually option 3). When it loads select the Administrator account (unless you set a password when you installed your operatinsg system, this should not have a password set. Leave the password field blank and log in. Once logged in, go into Control Panel, Select user accounts and remove or change the password for your user account. Save changes. Exit control panel and Restart the computer.

If you forgot the password for a website, most sites have a Forgot Password or Need assistance with Logging in link. That link is usually under the login boxes.

Hope this helps

Forgot Administrative password


I got the following from the windows help and support:

OPTION 1
Using a password reset disk is the best solution.
  1. If you have typed the wrong password, you'll get a message that says your user name or password is incorrect. When this message appears, click OK.
  2. Click Reset password, and then follow the instructions.
OPTION 2

If there is another administrator account on the computer, that administrator can change the password for the account you can't remember the password for. If you do this, however, you will lose access to any encrypted files, encrypted e‑mail messages, and passwords stored on this account. If you don't have encrypted files or stored passwords, then this option will work for you


OPTION 3

If you don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows. In this case, you will need to re-install Windows.
