Preferred Solution: UEFI Admin Password?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Yet again, Windows is frustratingly taking up all of my time and I have tried everything google has to offer to try and fix it but it seems like no one has screwed up as much as I have on whatever forum. Let me explain the problem: I'm trying to set my account to administrator because I can't install programs, change account settings, make any changes through CMD without getting the system error 5 access denied message and I can't set the administrator account through CMD either. I also don't have the permission to change anything in regedit and I can't even reset my pc because it requires an administrator password which I don't have, is not "nothing" nor is it administrator or admin or password and I can't change it through cmd either. I can't even access the administrator account because it is disabled and even with an elevated cmd I can't activate the "hidden" administrator account. I've ran malwarebytes and superantispyware and I am now looking for the Gandalf of all Geeks to help me solve this problem. I'd immensely appreciate it!

Hi
I need to either change a guest log in (kid's access) to
adminstrator, or a way to reveal or change the password
for the Admin profile. Thanks for your help.
I tried this already: Run: cmd net user guest *
I tried to rest the guest password this way but
it didn't work - I'm thinking it is because I am not
logged on as admin in the first place. What do I do now?
Thx
lrr

A:change guest login to admin or figure out admin password

you cant change an admins pw from a guest account....at all

only way to change the admin pw is to boot to safe mode and enter the sys admin account or use a hacking program iso which you can find easily but use at your own risk....

The firm in which I work has a Lenovo PC with Windows 10 installed. There are two user profiles on the computer, the admin and another normal account without administration rights. We have only the password of the account without administrator rights.

The network administrator had left the company surprisingly in without giving the administrator password of the PC and we cannot contact him anymore.

Now we want to install another programme and we cannot do this without an administrator account.

I disabled secure boot and have tried to boot the PC with an Linux USB Stick, but it do not boot from the stick.

Any suggestion how I either can reset the password of the administrator account or create an new account with administrator rights.

A:Windows 10 admin password reset or new account with admin rights

Although there may be techniques to recover a lost password it is forum policy that we do not discuss these here - your best bet would be to visit a local security specialist and get them to recover/reset it for you - and a change to the policy for the replacement admin may be a good idea, I always wrote a list of all passwords and stored it with the Managing Director and also in a fireproof safe

I have some software that only functions right if the person has administrative permissions on the machine.  I don't want to give my users the admin passwords so they can do a Run As for obvious reasons.  Is there a way to force a program to run

Hello,

I bought a laptop about a year ago. Shortly after buying it, we lost the password before making a backup disk. I couldn't change the password, we run Windows 7, without the old password. Luckily, or so we think, we have one of those laptops that has a fingerprint scanner so I have been able to log on using my fingerprint as a password. However, I can't believe that I am locked out of changing the passwords on this computer.

I have learned my lesson! Always back it up first! But for now, I need some help. I am also a little worried that I may have been hacked into. A friend said that if your password all of a sudden doesn't work, that is a sign of a hacker. That is what it felt like happened to me. I swear I thought I had the password right, then all of a sudden it stops working.

Thanks so much-Bill

Hi there,I have a machine that was protected with a HDD password and, as any IT manager's nightmare, right after setting it the following first trial have failed to let us use the hard drive.We also set the bios admin password (the one which is required to make changes in bios) and this one is working accordingly.On the HDD password bios page you can read that you can use the admin/master password to remove the HDD password (supposedly without losing data), but I wasn't able to find how could that be done, can someone tell me how?
Best outcome: Use the admin password to disable HDD password.Unacceptable but still possible solution: Erase the whole hard disk altogether with the password.The system is a Dell Inspiron 7560 (S/Tag

) and we have about 60 more machines to set BIOS/HDD passwords, any help is much appreciated.

Hi, I need an urgent help with my computer. I own a HP 255 G3, it has a password set for UEFI by default. I would want to unlock it, so that I could turn off secure boot and install Windows 7. The computer had Windows 8.1 installed from the very beginning. What should I do?

A:How to remove default UEFI password?

> I own a [notebook] HP 255 G3, it has a password set for UEFI by default. It is unusual to have a "default" BIOS/UEFI password.Did you buy it "new", or "refurbished", or privately, or was the initial setup done by the computer store that sold it to you? Given that notebook computers, such as yours, can be stolen, they are designed to NOT make it easy to delete that password. > I would want to unlock it, so that I could turn off secure boot and install Windows 7.> The computer had Windows 8.1 installed from the very beginning. According to HP's web-site, this notebook computer has "downgrade rights" to install Windows 7.Did it come with a Windows 7 Installation DVD, plus a 25-character product-key for Windows 7?It's no longer possible to purchase Windows 7, except through sites like eBay, or from a small computer-store that still has "new old stock" gathering dust on their display shelf. The larger question is why you would want to downgrade to Windows 7, since Microsoft will stop issuing security-updates for Windows 7 in three years (January 2020).  At that time, you'll have to reinstall the orginal Windows 8, or to pay to license a copy of the 2020-version of Windows 10, to protect your computer from malware. If you want the Windows 7 "start-menu" add-in for Windows 8, see: http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/priced at $4.99 US per license.

Hi - I've just got a Samsung 850 Pro and will be installing Win 8.1 Pro on it.

I'd like to use the hardware encryption on the SSD drive but now I've looked into it I'm not sure if/how I can.
Motherboard is a few years old now (ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO), and I can't see a HDD in BIOS (just supervisor and user), and don't think it is UEFI compatible either, or TPM compatible!
Samsung suggested bitlocker but I assume the lack of UEFI means bitlocker is no good for me - or would it mean the encryption would be software (which I'm not keen on as it will affect performance)?
Basically, is there anyway I could get hardware encryption working with a fresh install of Win 8.1
Thanks.

A:SSD hardware encryption, but no UEFI, TPM or HDD password?

you can protect the SSD by setting a password in bios.. What a PITA to use, Bitlocker is software driven in Pro editions.. Another PITA..

Yes, you can reset your ASUS Bios or UEFI password if you forgot it. (works on UEFI based laptops at least... don't know if it will work on everything)

This only works if you can boot into windows (or other OS) ! It will reset you BIOS or UEFI password if you have forgotten it.

- Boot into windows and change the date to 2002/01/02,

- Reboot while while hitting F2 to get into the BIOS / UEFI, when the enter password window appears hit "Alt + r", a "Enter rescue password" window will appear, with 2002/01/02 date showing (if not the code won't work), enter the following rescue password : ALAA4ABA

- Done ! You're in the BIOS / UEFI

- Change back the date and other settings to their correct values in the BIOS / UEFI, save settings, and you're good.

Thanks to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZfFcHtYIRw for the solution !
