My wife is the administrator user and she forgot her password and it does not back up and there is only standard users on this PC, what can we do?

If your wife was using his account with "computer administrator" privileges, and then use the built-in account named "Administrator".

By default, the built-in account named "Administrator" doesn't have a password.  If you have XP Pro, you can access the administrator account (with no other connected users) Welcome screen by pressing CTRL + ALT + DELETE twice to bring up the "classic" logon window  Enter the administrator user and leave the password empty box.

In XP Pro or XP Home, you can access the administrator account by restarting mode without fail (repeatedly press F8 to leave immediately after the computer starts / restarts; if you see the Windows logo, you waited too long and you will need to try again).  Once Windows starts in Mode safe mode, the administrator account will appear on the Welcome screen.

Once you are in the administrator account, go to control panel > user accounts to reset the password of an account with "computer administrator" privileges or create a new user account with privileges "computer administrator."

If the password that you lack to the built-in, ' administrator' account politics of Microsoft for these forums forbid us to provide you with any information that might help you to bypass this password.

    I am sorry to say that there is not much you can do. Unless you have activated backup feature, of course. If you have activated the backup feature, you should be able to open the backup to the original location.
    Auto Backup works only for forced stop etc. and seems to remove the automatic backup files when you click on "do not save".
    I am sorry to say that you really can do anything. There might be some software extremely thorough out there that can help, but other than that, there isn't much chance.

    You must restore your registry to a point in time before that you have disabled the administrator user.  It is not easy if there is any left on the system administrator user.

    One way to do this is to start your computer from a CD rescue-style such as BartPE and UBCD4Win or Linux Livecd such as Knoppix.  You can then follow the steps in the following article from part 2, step 6, using GUI to copy and rename the files rather than orders from command-line specified in article.

  • Is there a way for me to reset the password on my laptop (I am the administrator, but I've changed my password and you forgot what I changed to).

    Is there a way for me to reset the password on my laptop (I am the administrator, but I've changed my password and you forgot what I changed to)?

    When I click on "reset password" it says to insert the removable disk or flash drive.  I put in a disk, and nothing happened.  I inserted a flash drive and the computer said that it could not do (or something).

    Hello

    You must make a password reset disk before you forgot your password, not then.

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-Vista/create-a-password-reset-disk

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Microsoft prohibits any help given in these Forums for you help bypass or "crack" passwords lost or forgotten.

    Here's information from Microsoft, explaining that the policy:

    And this is the Information from Microsoft on the problems of passwords;

    You will need to borrow a Microsoft DVD from a friend, if you do not, as Recovery DVD a manufacturer does not have these particular options work.

    If you are unable to connect to Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you can use the Windows Vista System Restore feature, or the Windows 7 system restore feature.

    You may be unable to connect to Windows Vista or Windows 7 in the following scenarios:

    • Scenario 1: You recently set a new password for the protected administrator account. However, you don't remember the password.
    • Scenario 2: You type the correct password. However, Windows Vista or Windows 7 does not accept the password because the system is damaged.
    • Scenario 3: You delete a protected administrator account. Now, you cannot connect to another administrator account.
    • Scenario 4: You change an administrator account protected with a standard user account. Now, you cannot connect to another administrator account.

    See you soon.

  • Problem with the administrator user account

    When I connect to my administrator user account a Windows Sidebar message immediately rises:

    "Settings.ini is being used by another process. Close the other program, and then click Retry, or click Cancel to exit sidebar. »

    The problem is that there is no other program to close so I click on no to cancel. There is also a message from Catalyst Control Centre (program of ATI technology video card) that comes immediately after the message of the sidebar:

    "The host application has stopped working a problem caused the program blocking works correctly." Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. »

    I click Close Program, but no notice is. Try using Windows, I get the message "help topic is not found." I tried the system information (msinfo32.exe) and get the message "cannot collect information cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation software.» Management of Windows files may be displaced or missing. » !!!

    All the above problem ONLY happens in the administrator user account. Both regular user accounts work fine. Windows help works very well, information system works very well!

    I'd appreciate any help to solve this problem of crazy.

    If you "move" the files/folders to PUBLIC folders, you can then access them when you are in the new admin account and then you can place them in your personal folders.
    If you do not Move To and copy to options in your context menu, here is the tutorial to "help":
    http://www.Vistax64.com/tutorials/89196-context-menu-add-copy-folder-move-folder.html

    When you have completed the tutorial, try this...
    Right click on any folder/file > click Move To > scroll to the destination where will be moved to the folder/file > click on move.
    That's all. The file/folder is moved.

    Public folders are accessible to all user accounts on the computer.

    Hello Dominic,.

    Thank you for reaching out to us on Microsoft Community.

    The prompt that you receive requesting the administrator username and password during the installation of any program is due to the User Account Control (UAC). UAC can help prevent your computer from unauthorized changes. UAC notifies you when changes will be made to your computer that require administrator-level permissions. These types of changes can affect the security of your computer or can affect settings for other people who use the computer. We recommend that you leave UAC to help your computer course.

    However, if you still want to delete the computer from Windows 8 user account control settings, you can view the suggestions about Disabling UAC in Windows 8.
