Forgot only account password, no vista disk or password reset disk..

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Administration' started by collinshumate, Jun 2, 2008.

  1. I forgot the password to my computer, and it is the only account on the
    computer. I do not have a reset disk and I dont think I ever had a Vista
    disk. I cannot use that computer at all. What is the easiest way I can
    fix it?

    Remember the password?
    "What is the easiest way I can fix it?"

    Failing that--
    It depends upon what else you did, such as encript the hard drive. In
    general, there are some ways to change the password. None are easy or
    simple, your first requirement. The laptop may have an OEM method of
    restoring by running a backup of the original OEM Vista load. Usually this
    is invoked with a key combination during the early stage of bootup.
    Unfortunately, if this method is used, you will loose any application
    installs and data that were placed on the laptop by you.

    Reinstall Vista(with borrowed Vista DVD, using the product key on you
    system), or create Recovery disk to boot off. Boot into Vista advance
    recovery utility and perform a System Restore to a point before yo
    changed the password. The old password will then work

    1. Login to a computer that can link to Internet. Download 'Windows
    Password Unlocker 4.0' (http://www.passwordunlocker.com) and decompress
    it on that PC. Note that: there is a .ISO file. Burn the .ISO file to a
    CD.

    2 Get out the newly created CD and insert it to the locked computer.

    3 re-booted the locked computer and then followed the process of
    instructions. Just a few steps, the old password was removed.'''

    4 Setting new password:

    Step one: Open the "Control Panel"

    Step two: Click the "User Account "

    Step three: Select the account you wanna to set a new password.

    Step four: Click "changing Account " and "set up password", then fill
    out the form as listed. Click "Create Password".

    Thus, you have a personal login ID and Password, any one has no right
    to login to your computer with out this info.
