Win. XP, log in/log out problem, + forgotten admin pass.

Q: Win. XP, log in/log out problem, + forgotten admin pass.

Hello.

I hope this isn't 10th topic about this, it's a damage caused by BlazeFind i quess.
I can't log in to windows, if i try it just logs out right away.
Same in "safe"mode.

I found instructions how to solve this here:
http://www.winxptutor.com/wsaremove.htm

(Under : Logon - Logoff loop, also caused by BlazeFind )

But as i said in topic, i have forgotten my admin password so i cant use the " Recovery Console"

Oh...What to do?..
I really want to avoid reinstalling xp and all that hassle..

Preferred Solution: Win. XP, log in/log out problem, + forgotten admin pass.

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.)

I have recently ran into an issue that is probably not too uncommon but I am having issues with. I currently forgot my password for my admin account on my laptop that runs on windows vista, i have looked up ways to bypass this issue and have ran into some issues along the way so first i looked up a password rescuer online but figured that i would have a hard time running it because my pass is more than 14 characters long. i also tried to run a system restore on it for an earlier time before i changed the password that i have currently forgot but an error keeps coming up due to a corrupted file on my c drive. all i want to do is gain access to my admin account so i can back up the files that are precious to me so i can run a factory restore on my computer then have it running clean again. Anyhow, I looked online for some other ideas and im currently reading and looking into ways to bypass the admin account by using a sticky keys trick the windows vista password or offline enabling the built in admin account on vista. The trouble that I am having is that i made it to where my files were viewable and accessable only through the admin account, does that mean they are encrypted? also would doing these tricks possibly delete my files or make them unaccessable? i also dont have a vista or windows setup dvd could i possibly do anything to bypass the admin account to keep my files, without the dvd? thank you so much, i know im in one heck of a pickle any help is very appreciated.

Forgotten admin password, cannot boot

A:forgotten admin password

Hi, There is a general policy on the Forum not to provide methods to bypass Windows log-on passwords, however a local computer shop would be able to do this for you. Another option, if all your personal data etc is backed-up, would be to reset the notebook to its 'Factory Condition' and then set it up from the beginning ? if you don?t have your Recovery Media, the notebook will have shipped with a Recovery Partition which can be accessed at boot - ie shutdown the notebook, then start tapping away at f11 as soon as you power on. A full guide on this can be found on the following link. http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00006110#!&AbT1%3Fjumpid=hpr_r1002_usen_link1 Regards, DP-K

I started to follow some instructions to override the administrator password on an older computer with xp. there are 4 accounts and only one is accessable with no administrator rights. I put in the boot cd and did the shift + f10 when I saw the loading devices and when the user account window popped up, a message that said it wasn't recognized with no user icons in the box popped up and forces me to close it. NO idea what to do now....please and thank you in advance to someone who can get me through this...thanks

I am running Windows XP home w/SP2 installed. I have several modules I believe have been corruppted and want to do a Windows Repair.

I have tried every password I can think of including leaving it blank, and it says they are all invalid. After the third invalid attempt, it reboots again and I have to start over. How do I find the correct Administrator password or is there a way I can establish a new one so I can perform the Windows Repair. Thanks for any help!!

Hi Guys, I know that there a program that will let you find the admin password.

We went to our sons and he set up windows 10 for my good lady, during the process he was asking her questions but he asked her a password were for but he didn't tell her what the passwords were for now that we are at home and trying to download and add programs we don't know how to get into it.

A:Forgotten Admin password

Whether I set up a computer for someone with Windows 7 or Windows 10, I never ever set it up with a password.
If that person wants the computer password-protected, it's that person's choice to add one later.

Your son who set it up for you doesn't know the password?

This is an issue that we normally don't provide help with.
It's in the TSG forum rules.

Hi all

I am having a major problem and I hope somebody can help me. Here goes.

A friend has asked me to try and fix her friends laptop. He has forgotten his admin password and this is the only account.

I have created a password recovery CD and USB and changed the BIOS boot order to try and boot from these devices. Each time I reboot it seems to try and read the CD or USB and then just goes straight to the logon screen.

I have tried Hirens Boot CD but I do not know how to create a pure Win 8.1 bootable CD.

Any help would be really appreciated.

My brother set up a machine with XP promptly forgot the admin login password. Is there any way to recover it in DOS? Or to skip the login window and go straight into the OS? It was the only login created on the system.

If it was me I'd just wipe C drive and start over with a fresh OS install, but he didn't partition the drive so all the data he transfered over will be lost.

I guess I could walk him through setting it up as a slave drive on another system to recover his data - but it would be an expensive support call since he's on another continent.

Any help would be much appreciated.

A:Recovering forgotten admin password?

Does your brother know a good Hypnotist? Otherwise you may be right about the re-install. I don't know if maybe a system restore to the time right before the password will help or not. You might find something in FAQ on Bill's site

I have an old dell laptop I set up for my daughter. It has win 7 ultimate 32. I can not remember the Admin password I used when I set it up. The screen is cracked so I have another monitor hooked up. This monitor only comes up after Windows is loaded up, so I can't get into CMOS or anything else before windows boots up. F8 doesn't help, because I can't see anything on the screen. Anything I try to do in my daughters log in, wants the ADMIN password, Which I can't remember. I can't even reinstall windows because I can't get into CMOS to set it to boot from disk or USB.

I have forgotten my administrator password on my PC which is running Windows Vista. I bought the PC a few years ago and haven't been using it for a long time because I have a laptop but I have set it all back up yesterday and now I have realised I don't remember my password.

I set my account up as administrator (but didn't make a password reset disk) and also set up another family member's account but they are just a standard user ...I can get into their account but I cannot install anything without the admin password. I contacted the local computer shop and they said they would be able to sort it but it would cost me alot of money ...which I don't have.

The PC came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium so I didn't get a re-install CD. Is there any way I can either retrieve my password or re-install Windows Vista ...I don't mind if I lose anything I have on the computer because there isn't much on it or anything of importance because I didn't use it for much only browsing the internet. I would appreciate some advise, I know a bit about computers but I cannot resolve this and I have tried every possible password I can think of.
