Windows 7 does not accept my password.

I used Windows 7 Ultimate for a while using the same password.  I did not, don't repeat it, forgot my password, but now it won't accept it.  Why is this happened, and more important still, how do I get back?  I don't have a disc pre-made that will allow me to reset the password.

Start/run and type in: control userpasswords2 or just press WIN + R keys to support the option RUN.

The user account window will now appear, there is an optionnamed "user must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Next uncheck this option and click the OK"" button.

Windows will then ask you to enter your password that you used to connect with. Enter your password and check.

Restart the computer.

  • Windows Vista does not accept my password (unchanged) but I have no recovery disk - Windows is already installed

    Hello

    As the title says after using my laptop without any previous problems, suddenly I can not connect on Windows Vista.

    I'm 100% sure that the password has not been changed, caps lock, shift, caps lock Num etc is not active.

    When I bought the laptop, Vista was already installed, so I don't have a recovery disk.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You will need to borrow a Microsoft DVD from a friend, Recovery DVD a manufacturer without these special work options available.

    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.

    If the above does not fix it:

    Here are the different methods to reinstall Vista.

    There is no Windows Vista downloads available from Microsoft.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    To reinstall Vista using their recovery disk/s, you start from the 1st recovery disk they provide and follow the manufacturer's instructions to reinstall:

    You need to change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order:

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall Vista on how you purchased your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

  • Vista does not accept the password (password not changed or forgotten)

    Vista does not accept the password (we have not forgotten password of windows startup) how can we get around this problem .the password has not been changed or forgotten Vista has a little programming problem which stops the right password

    It is most often caused by the computer being infected, so after you go back into the system, it would be wise to make an analysis.

    http://www.elephantboycomputers.com/page2.html#Removing_Malware

    You can change your password to something you remember (or use a white) another administrative user account. If you had only an administrative user account, all is not lost. You can then follow the general recommendations for implementing user accounts in Vista that I will give you at the end of this post.

    All this requires a certain level of computer skills. You know better and that take the machine to a competent local computer tech (not a type of BigComputerStore/GeekSquad place) is the best solution for you.

    If you have an installation of Vista DVD (not a recovery DVDs), you can start the system with it. Select the default language, then select "repair your computer". Then select "Command Prompt". At the command prompt, type:

    NET user administrator / Active: Yes [press Enter]
    NET user [insert here the name of your user account] [insert the new password of user as 1234 here] [press Enter]

    [Note: do not enter the brackets!]

    Remove the installation DVD and restart the computer. Now, you will be able to connect to your user account by using the password that you set; for example, 1234.

    If you do not have a Vista installation DVD (only have a recovery disk), the computer mftr. may have given you the option to repair Vista (not a system recovery!) system in the diagnostic menu. This menu of diagnosis is the same one where you can choose Safe Mode. Get to this menu by repeatedly pressing the F8 key as the computer starts. If you do not have this option, you can make a bootable Vista file repair DVD in this link:

    http://NeoSmart.net/blog/2008/Windows-Vista-recovery-disc-download/

    Note: All the Neosmart recovery disk downloads are torrent files. There is a good explanation of the torrent on the site Web of Neosmart files. You will need a torrent as muTorrent client to get the files. Torrent client will download the .iso file with which to create the bootable DVD. You will need to use third-party burning software such as Nero, Roxio or the free ImgBurn (http://www.imgburn.com ) to burn the image .iso image file, not in the form of data.

    Once you have fixed things, log on to the additional administrative account you will be made by the suggestions below and disable the administrator account integrated yet for security reasons:

    Start Orb > Search box > type: cmd
    When cmd appears in the above results, right-click and choose "Run as Administrator" [OK]. Now, you will get the command prompt. At the command prompt, type:

    NET user administrator / active: No. [Enter]

    Exit the command prompt.

    General recommendations for creating users in Vista:

    You absolutely don't want to have only one user account. As XP and all the other modern operating systems, Vista is a multi-user system 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 one account user with administrative privileges on Vista 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 there may be more that you want to do. Better not to put you in 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).

  • I've set up the virtual machine in win 7 Ultimate and put some data. Now when I try to connect it asks password and does not accept any password.

    Default password Machine virtual XP Mode

    I've set up the virtual machine in win 7 Ultimate and put some data. Now when I try to connect it asks password and does not accept any password. Please giveme the default password

    If you're talking about XP Mode the default password is XPMUser.  In general you can not use Windows without a password in Windows Virtual PC that you can with Virtual PC 2007 and before.  XPMUser is used only with the XP Mode virtual machine.  All other virtual machines requires a user created password.  If you have changed the password in XP Mode and forgotten, then you have to start over.

    Windows Virtual PC is based on virtual server rather than VPC and all virtual machines need a password.  If necessary, uninstall the integration features, start the virtual machine and create a password for the admin user.  Restart the virtual machine, and then reinstall the integration features.  You will not be able to access a virtual machine created by the user that has no password, while the integration features are installed.  Once you have everything right, that a virtual machine will not be asked a password if you are the admin user in Windows 7.

  • Password Manager does not accept my password to win

    Hi, I reinstalled my system Win XP (reinstalled - restore factory restore point) and using the same password for my account in XP I used before. But password manager does not accept my password more.

    When I connect to my profile, and asked me my password in the pass Manager it sayes the authentificaiton failed. It's different when I type a password for the wrogn win... It is said immediately that he didn't, but when I type the correct password to my login to Win that he continues to deal with for a while, but then he said that he could not.

    When I login as an administrator and try it... everything is OK. but in my profile is not...

    following... when I close it cancel goes away - but when I try to double click PM icon - and I wonder password... and I type my login password right it is not that he failed, but only he disappeare and noething happened... When I try to open the MP of the plateau - the same...

    in some cases, it is said that windows password has been changed and wonder the new pass - but it's always the same, I used before so I'm sure that I don't forget and I write you the wrogn-car - I woudn't power connect victory also...

    I tried to change my password to win and by using the copy - paste I old tape pass, new, still nine and also in the PasswordManager but still does not...

    I tried to uninstall and reinstall the password manager, but he seems to have a few status registers...

    Can someone help me solve this problem? I really enjoy using this password manager...

    I found here that "password issues" aren't disccussed here... If not... where are? doI have to call somewhere and still a lot of money on the phone bill? I'd like to solve this problem online here or by mail...

    Hi Steve,

    Please excuse my late reply, but I am currently very busy and not at home.

    Yes, 'shutdown' meant turn off .

    The need to restore the keys seems to me as if all of the key information have been removed. Maybe there is some key information that remains after the uninstall process, and these are retrieved later during the new installation. During my process any key information have been recovered so far here.

    Are you sure, be connected as "LENOVO - BC8C81F0\Administrator. The name of the computer looks as if it was a random name. If your computer now has a different name. Maybe you have to change the name of the computer.

    I also feel that CSS is not very accurate in finding the right user and user profile folder.

    Sorry, if uninstalling and cleaning of different locations does not help you. If the problem is related to different account of your administrator account ID, I can't help you. It is a problem well beyond my capabilities of Windows.

    Good luck!

  • Installer does not accept my password

    Ive tried to install software for music on my macbook pro, but when it comes to enter the password to access icloud to actually start installing it does not accept my password. Signed cloud online with no problem, so I changed my password, is out of the installer and tried the process again but made no difference.

    Did I miss something blatantly obvious? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    The installation of the software usually requires the password that you use to connect to your MacBook, not the password to iCloud.
