Download Ophcrack, then burn the ISO image to a CD. Then boot your PC from the cd and it will read your password for you and tell you what it is. http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/

Forgot the password


Hold F8 on boot up, and boot into Safe Mode. There will be an Administrator account, which you can use to reset your account password.
If somehow the Administrator account is disabled, you can use alternative methods like: this, this and this.

How do you reset a lost windows XP administrator password?


This tutorial will only work in windows xp.

On start up (before Windows loads),Immediately press F8 simultaneously.Click on "Safe Mode".When you are asked to log in, log in to "Administrator" (shouldn't have a password).Go to "Control Panel" by clicking on the START button.Go to "User Accounts".

Look for the account and either delete the password or change it.
step 2:
insert xp cd and boot ur system in bootable xp cd
then go to second repair option .After system restart 39 min remaining At the press shift f10 .At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel,change the password and run the repair setup.Now your administrator password changed


Follow the steps below to quickly find the administrator password on your computer!


1. Try leaving the password blank. More often than not, the Administrator password doesn't exist at all! Just press Enter without typing anything when asked for it.
2. Enter the password to your account. Often times, depending on how Windows XP was setup on your computer, the primary user account will also be the administrator user account.
3. Recover Windows XP administrator password using Windows Password Key. Windows Password key is a program reset any Windows password without reinstalling the OS.
4. Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This is a last resort option. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch. If you're just curious about your administrator password, I wouldn't suggest this extreme solution.

However, if you're needing the administrator password to access diagnostic tools and this is your last effort to save your PC, performing a clean install will work. Keep in mind that it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

I am in standard user on my laptop and want to switch to administrator user and my Toshiba laptop wont let me switch


What is the Operating System installed on your Laptop? For windows, try this:

Open the command prompt, or simply start, type in "cmd" [without quotes], press enter and type in "Net user /active:yes" [without quotes and one space after user] again press enter and confirm if any message pops up. This is enable the administrator's account.

You can also manually enable it from the Computer Management, right-click the My Computer, select "Manage", click "Local users and Groups", then again open "Users", double-click the "Administrator" and enable it.

If you need further help, let me know with more details.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I locked myself out of my labtop and i dont know the password to get back in it


Here's how to reset your password:
  1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up.
  2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
  3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
  4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
  5. All done, you have recovered the lost password
Hope you'll have it resolved soon :-)

Login as 'Administrator', and then:
Click Start
Click Control Panel

Change the password.

NOTE: Never connect a computer with a "blank" password for the 'Administrator' account to any computer network -- it will get "hacked".

I have created administrator password of win xp but i forgot it .when i reboot our computer . the window does not open and asked password . how can i get it.without reinstall or any windows xp cd


If u have only that account u have to find any password recovery tools from the net. U have to burn it to CDs and etc. PCLogInNow is recommended. Download from rapidshare.
If u have any other account what u have to do is click ctrl alt del twice. Then give user id and password. There is no other way to reset passwords.
Please rate the answer.
Thanks.
