You cannot remove an administrator password for the initial windows set up you have to reinstall windows, but if you mean that you have not got administrative rights in the user set up you you will have to set up a new user, but again if you do and you still cannot get administrative rights you will have to reinstall windows.

RESET PASSWORD

Windows Password Buster can reset forgotten Windows password.

What is the Windows XP Administrator Password?

<p>Windows XP, the most popular versions of Windows, was widely installed by PC users. Do you remember after you installing your first copy of Windows XP, how long did it require you to realize that you didn't know the administrator password? I vaguely remembered that it was about a week before I needed to make some changes in the file system. It suddenly came to me to be logged on as an administrator, but I do not know the password of the administrator! <br /> <p> <br /> <p><img src="windows-xp-administrator-password.jpg" /> <p><br /> Luckily, Windows XP (both Home and Professional versions) have a "hidden" administrator account which is autogenerate when install. This account usually doesn't show up on the logon screen and most people are totally unaware of its existence. Usually it is ok because we didn't need to user this account very often, only when we don't know the administrator password, need access to the Windows XP recovery console or boot into Windows XP safe mode, the default <b>Windows XP administrator password</b> would come in handy.<br /> <p><br /> What is the Default Administrator Password in Windows XP?</b><br /> <p><br /> Knowing the default password of Windows XP administrator account would be very useful.<br /> <ol> <li>Try to leave the password blank. Simply press Enter without typing anything.</li></ol> <p>The default Windows XP Administrator password is defined to blank during the initial Windows XP installation process.<br /> <ol> <li> Enter the password for your account. It often depend on how Windows XP has been installed on your computer and what part of XP is asking for an admin password, the main user account will also be configured with administrator privilege.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Forgot my Windows XP Administrator Password!</b><br /> <p><br /> Windows XP User Accounts applet in the Control Panel functions is to create a password reset disk wizard. Using this wizard, a floppy disk or USB flash drive can be used to create a specific password reset disk for specific user account on a specific Windows XP computer. The password reset disk can only be used with the computer it was created on and it can also be reused to reset the account's password multiple times. However, you need to know the password of the account you want to create the reset disk for, and you must create the reset disk before you forget the administrator password <br /> Here is how to <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">reset XP administrator password</a> with the XP password reset disk:<br /> <ol> <li>Insert the XP password reset disk to the computer</li> <li>Click the Use your password reset disk item on the XP logon screen to start the Password Reset Wizard. Click the Next button</li> <li>Follow the instructions to create a new password. </li> <li>Logon with the new password.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Didn't Create a Password Reset Disk!</b><br /> <p><br /> OK, if you <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgot Windows XP administrator password</a> and don't have a password rest disk, you won't be able to create a password reset disk anymore. Instead, there are several things you can try to get access to your windows. <b>SmartKey Windows Password Recovery</b> is your ticket. This password recovery tool not only works on Windows XP, but also on all releases of Windows NT/2000/Vista/ 7 and Windows Server 2003/2008. It works by booting from a CD/DVD or USB flash drive and reset the <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten Windows XP administrator password</a>.<br /> <p><br /> <b>NOTE: </b>If you change the administrator password on a Windows XP or Windows Vista system with the Encrypted File System (EFS), all of the encrypted files will become inaccessible. The password for the Administrator account is used to create the EFS encryption key. Changing the Administrator account back to using the original password should restore access to the encrypted files, but I have never tried it.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>If you only need to blank the <b>Windows XP Administrator password</b>, here are the basic steps:<br /> <ol> <li> Download and install SmartKey Windows Password Recovery software.</li> <li> Burn the software to CD/DVD or USB flash drive. </li> <li> Insert newly created CD/DVD and reboot your computer from the CD/DVD or USB flash drive </li> <li> Reset the forgotten Windows XP password, remove the CD/DVD or USB flash drive and then reboot the computer</li></ol> <p>Having the capability to reset <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten XP administrator passwords</a> and regain access to a locked computer can be a great time saver, but should only be tried by an IT professional. you may probably make things worse rather than better if you use sophisticated system or manipulation tools<br /> <p><br /> <p>Article Source:<a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html">http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html</a><br />

Try blank. here is the methods I know. The first thing which you check if...

If you have only one Admin account in Vista and have forgotten the password for the same and dont want to reinstall the operating system and land up loosing all your data, this tip is for you.

1) Restart the PC with the Vista Boot Disc.
2) Select Repair Your Computer option
3) Select the Command Prompt

Or - If you dont have a Vista Boot Disc then boot your PC to DOS using any Dos boot disk or other O/s disc.

4) goto "C:\"
5) Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 ( cd c:\windows\system32)
6) Now we will rename the utility manager to cmd.

Type the following commands,
- ren cmd.exe cmdold.exe
- ren utilman.exe cmd.exe
exit

7) we have renamed it successfully.
8) Restart the PC without the disc, reach the screen where you are asked for you password.
9) You will see a white blue icon on bottom left.
10) Click on the icon and CMD will open up, type the following command in CMD.
- net user administrator /active
exit
11) Restart the PC, and you will find you have one more administrator account
12) logon with the new account, goto user accounts and remove the password for your old account.
13) restart the PC with the Disc again, and goto the command prompt as we did in the step 1-3.
14) type the following command,
- cd c:\windows\system32
- ren cmd.exe utilman.exe
- ren cmdold.exe cmd.exe

15) restart the PC, and logon to your own account, open CMD by going from start menu.
16) type the following and restart the PC.
- net user administrator /active:no

17) restart the PC and now you only have one account and thats your own account.

Bought a used pc, do not have password for windows log-on. cannot get to bios, no boot up cd. what now?

Most XP machines have a built in administrator account that normally does not have a password.

You can try pressing F8 before Windows starts up to go into the XP bootup menu.

Choose Safe mode

Once into safe mode you should either see an 'Administrator' account listed, or just type in Administrator and do not type a password. If that works, go to Start-->Control Panel-->User Accounts. From there you can create a new user account for you to use with administrative privileges.

If that doesn't work, try downloading a password reset utility, such as the one at http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

Hope this helps

Windows XP - Cannot access user name or adminstrator name to log in

Have You Lost Your Windows Admin Password?

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press <ctrl>+<alt>+<del> keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.
