  • Forgotten Admin password, receive the error message "the user profile service has no logon. Unable to load the user profile.

    Can re above, anyone help? Thank you

    * original title - I'm having problems with "the user profile service has no logon. Unable to load the user profile"in order to resolve this that I have to sign as an administrator, but I forgot my password. What can I do? *

    Only suggestion I can offer...
    Go to safe mode...
    See if there is another account admin, you've not seen before.
    If so, this is the built-in Administrator account. By default, there is no password.
    Logon to the account built-in Administrator and do the following:
    1 do a system restore

    2 use this tutorial from Microsoft support :
    There are several methods, go through one by one.
    Method 3 has a "fix it for me" application

    If you don't see the built-in Administrator account... Sorry
    We are not allowed to help users to bypass the password protection, regardless of what are "reasons".
    Here's the Microsoft Policy about this:

  • Account settings - forgotten admin password user

    How to reset an administrative password (which has been forgotten)? I reload the OS?

    You can prepare a 'password reset disk' enforcement of the user accounts in the control panel. You must also enter a "index" that might help you to remember

    Assuming that you mean that you cannot access any administrator account on your system because you don't have that, there are available utilities to reset the empty password. Mark L. Ferguson MS - MVP

    forgot the administrator password have no idea how to re - define which can help anyone?

    There are a lot of options built into Windows to help you out of this situation:
    • Restart the computer with your Windows repair CD, then use system restore to set Windows in a few days (only works if you have recently changed the password).
    • Log on to your account admin to spare, and then reset the password for your existing account (works only if you set up an alternative admin account).
    • Log in as administrator mode without failure, then reset the password for your existing account (the password is usually empty).
    • Insert your flash drive USB with the password key file (only works if you have taken the time to create such a key file).
    • Use the password indicator (works only if you have created a hint and if it's good enough to allow you to guess the password)
    • Check your paper files (works only if you threw down the password somewhere)
    When you're done, plan in advance and create, test and document a spare, even admin account that you have a spare House key. This will save you a lot of trouble.
