My administrator password

OK so when I turn my computer on it automatically opens me in my account which is an account of amin, but I want to be able to change the password... except that I don't know. I need a way to find him... Please!

Control Panel > user accounts. Click the icon that is associated with your user account and you will see where you can change the password to whatever you want. If you want to automatically open a session on the account (to be able to enter the password), just reverse the process to automatically connect described below. BTW, you should not be as an administrator for your daily work. There was security recent study illustrated where 70% of infections of Windows could have been avoided had run as a Standard user.

User - recommended configuration (Vista and Win7) accounts

You absolutely don't want to have only one user account. As XP and all other Windows 7, Vista, and modern operating systems are operating systems multi-user with integrated system of accounts as default Administrator and comments. These accounts should be left alone because they are part of the structure of the operating system.

In particular, you do not want account only one user with administrator privileges on Vista and Windows 7 because the administrator account integrated (normally only used in emergencies) is disabled by default. If you use as an administrator for your daily work, and this account is corrupt, things will be difficult. It is not impossible to activate the built-in administrator to rescue things, but it may require more work you want to do. Better not to get into a bad situation at first.

The user account that is for your daily work must be a Standard user, with the extra administrative user (call it something like 'CompAdmin' or 'Tech' or similar) only it for elevation purposes. As a user Standard is recommended for security reasons and will help protect your computer against infections. After you have created "CompAdmin", connect to it and change your normal user account Standard. Then log on to your regular account.

If you want to go directly to the desktop and ignore the Welcome screen with the icons of the user accounts, you can do this:

Start Orb > Search box > type: netplwiz [Enter]
Click continue (or provide an administrator password) when you are prompted by UAC

Uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to connect automatically by clicking on the account you want to highlight and press OK. Enter the password for this user account (when it exists) when you are prompted. Leave blank if there is no password (null).

  • Thunderbird, ask administrator password. I give him and he said: no good. How to do this?

    I'm trying to download Thunderbird on Windows 7. When I click "Run" it extracted and then a window "run as" appears. My choices are myself and administrator. I tried them both. Neither work. I googled how to find the administrator password. That's what I use and it's giving me a logon failure: unknown username or bad password. When I select myself under the run as a window the window disappears and nothing happens.

    It seems that you have put yourself in place with a standard user account that does not have permission to download and install programs.

    Set your user account as an administrator or when booting Windows to connect on the admin account.

    Here's something I found on google.

  • HP Pavilion 17 e040us - administrative passwords (Windows 8/HP)

    I'm a little confused on the administrative passwords.

    I went to my "manage accounts" and he said my name, the type of account I (they is more than one type of account, and if so, that should appear here), listed as "Administrator" and the password protected for Windows 8.  The password that I created to "lock screen" also the password for Adminstator?  I don't remember being asked a password "Administrator"?  I also created a password and have the code for my Microsoft account security.

    Also is there such a thing as administrator account for my HP computer?

    Thank you and "Happy Valentines Day" for those who celebrate it.

    I forgot, what is a BIOS password?

    JoseysGirl,

    I do not know which ensures your Internet service; I think that you can open a browser and log as desired.

    The main reason for the creation of an additional administrative account on your computer is to give access to your computer, in case your hair into account principal for some reason any and you cannot connect to the computer.  You can always set an account - or, in most cases, retrieve data from account - IF you have a way to enter into the computer in the first place.  The extra account gives you an additional door - like through the garage to your home by using a spare key - you are still in the House, and now you can watch for that other key.

    In general the following is true:

    • E-mail services have a method to keep in a safe place in the servers that are used to provide a Web login page to your e-mail.
    • E-mail providers perform backups of emails sent to their servers for each user who has an account and who receives the e-mail to this account.

    Possible EXCEPTIONS / Exclusions to the Email backups:

    • E-mail messages that are moved to the trash
    • Emails that are placed in the Spam folder
    • Emails that are "skipped" or forwarded to another account - this depends on if the "leave on server" option.  Thunderbird email is an example of a 'pop' email client - the user has the option or the other copy of local Thunderbird email account (on your computer) OR moving the e-mail server to your Thunderbird account.  If you do not understand what this means, you probably not use e-mail client software, and you can skip the verbiage.

    Electronic mail services providers provide an access point for Web page for the e-mail that is addressed to your account.  In other words, you can open a browser, go to the provider's Web page, sign in to your account with the right user name and password by email, and open your email.

    Suppliers of the example:

    Comcast

    Google Mail

    Yahoo Mail

    Microsoft Live account:

    Extract from the account registration page:

    You can use any email address as username for your new Microsoft account, including their Outlook.com, Yahoo! or Gmail addresses. If already connected you on Windows PC, Tablet, phone, Xbox Live, Outlook.com or OneDrive, use this account to connect.

    As a general rule, you can connect to your e-mail account of your computer, since your tablet, maybe from your smartphone, your friend's computer.  You must have access to a "login page" for the email provider, you must have your user name and you know your password.
