Forgot Windows administrator Passwords?

Recommended Posts

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.

 

====2nd Method====

1. Reboot your machine.

2. Press F8 before the Windows boot screen appears.

o Do not press F5 as used on the NT/9x series of Windows.

3. You will be be prompted with a boot options menu.

4. Select the Start Windows in Safe Mode option.

5. Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.

6. Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.

7. Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.

o The Safe Mode Welcome screen might display some of the other users on your system.

8. Login as the admin.

9. Press Yes at the prompt asking if you would like to continue using Safe Mode.

10. Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.

11. Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (i.e. F8 ) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.

12. Login as the user for which you set the password.

 

====3rd Method====

Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten password by using “Reset Disk”. If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. To know more about it, please visit following links:

====4th method====

Comparatively, using windows password Recovery Tool utility is a reliable and convenient method for solving the password problem. Normally, the program can easily reset the password to “Blank” with no -reformatting or installation. Do all the job for you automatically. Unfortunately, it is not safe to use some free recovery tool to recover windows password. So here is the recommend recovery tool:windows password Recovery Tool 3.0 .

No bumping to advertise

 

annyyu22

I deleted your second post in this thread and deleted the other thread you started on this topic.

Both the post and the thread only served to once again bring this product to the attention of forum members.

 

Creating new threads and 'bumping' old threads to advertise a product is commonly known as spam and will lead to being banned.

The software you recommend has been mentioned in post# 5, I suggest you be content with that.

 

All the best, woz of oz

HI annyyu22!

 

I hope in the time since you first posted here you have studied and learned much here! If you did great!!

 

I find it hard to believe though, that if you had been back here "studying"; that you are only now responding so defensively!!

 

Woz was correct to enforce the rules of the forum!! No need to frown!

I Agree,

the only time Passwords may be needed is if the computer is in a public place, like a business or office,

and parents that need to keep their kids out.

 

Or a Kid wanting to keep their Parents Out. :lol:

There are a lot of Windows password reset tools, but I’ve found that Windows Password Reset 9.0 is the most effective. It not only supports Win98,Win2000, WinXP but also supports Win7 x32,Win7 x64, WinVista,WinVista x64.

Follow these instructions:

Step1. Purchase and download Windows Password Reset 9.0

Step2. Burn the CD

Step3. Boot the locked computer from CD/DVD and remove Windows pa
