Download "Hirens Boot CD"

Download a 500-600 MB cd just for resetting your password? ... no...
Download what i said, the download is roughly only 276 Mb.

and to prove that it can reset the admin password...
Examples of interesting things you can do

Disaster Recovery:
restore a broken windows system using ntfsclone/partimage
restore a tarball of your linux operating system and reinstall grub
Hard disk partitioning and administration tasks
format the hard disk and reinstall a copy of the operating system
resize your partitions
reinstall the grub boot loader
Fix a critical problem
fix a boot problem (fsck fails at boot time)
reset the root password of your windows system with the ntpass floppy disk image
reset the root password of your linux system by chrooting on it


so have fun. when you reset the admin password, just reboot in to windows and log in as the admin and reset your personal password.





Hirens is more than just a password reset cd, packed with a load of very useful utilities.

And also do a little research before posting

Might I suggest the Offline NT Password and Registry Editor? It's a 5MB CD image, and you can find the instructions on the website. Good luck.

It has a password reset program you can boot from the cd, and run that to remove your windows password

Also, If its XP, if you startup in safemode, and then when you are at the welcome screen, press CTRL, ALT, DEL twice, it should open the login box

Type in Administrator and login to that account, then remove the password from you account

If its Windows 7 or Vista, if you press F8 at boot to enter the boot options menu, and choose REPAIR, then go into the repair console and open a command prompt, at the command prompt type

net user administrator /active:yes

then reboot, and you will have the administrator account login available to remove your password from

administrator account is disabled by default on windows vista and above so i assume ya have one of those, if thats the case ya can use a piece of software called Trinity Rescue Kit, you can either enable the administrator account (safer), login under admin and reset the password or ya can just reset the password using the software....

Start your PC,,,, then continuously press F8 so it will run on Safe Mode,, Then go to Control Panel and manually change your password,,, Hope it will help.



i need to have my windows password to get into desktop whatever in safe mode.

Log in as "Administrator" not your actual account and then change it from there.
