HI YA I GOT A BRAND NEW COMPUTER ON THE 4 TH JANUARY 2008, I PUT A PASSWORD ONTHE ADMINISTRATOR AND CREATED ANOTHER ACCOUT WITHOUT PASSWORD, I HAVE BEEN USING THE OTHER ONE SINCE THEN ,BUT YESTERDAY TRIED GOING ON TO THE ADMINISTRATOR AND COULDNT REMEMBER MY PASSWORD. HOW CAN I RESOLVE THIS AS ALL MY WORK IN IN THE ADMINISTRATOR SAVED PLEASE HELP?
1. Log on with the account you have now.
2. Go to Start -> Run and type: cmd
3. When the CMD prompt opens, type the following:
net user Administrator <any password>
4. Press enter. A message should appear. Something like task completed or operation succesfull.
5. Close the screen, log off user.
6. Try logging in as Administrator again.
Where <any password> should be replaced with the password of your choice and types without the brackets. Also mind the spaces between the words. CMD assumes the word after the user accounts name is the password, but only when the user accounts name and the password are seperated by a space.
I hope this will answer your question, please don't forget to rate this solution.
