I need help resetting password in Vista

Recommended Posts

My sister in-law has forgotten her password. Is there a way to reset it without using a rescue CD? If not, what rescue CD do you recommend?

Thanks

Her account is the Admin Account so it can't be changed through Safe Mode

Thanks

is that the only accont user you have

can you enter any account that have complete access (administer)

then just go into user account then manage other account

then remove password

if not

try to log into safe mode and user administer should appear

then do the same thing

or try this

Reset With a Reset Disk

* 1 Recognize the error message. When you type the wrong password, you receive a message that says "Your password or user name is incorrect."

* 2 Click "OK."

* 3 Click "Reset Password."

* 4 Complete the instructions that follow. Windows Vista prompts you through the password resetting process.

Reset With an Administrator Account

* 1 Log in to your administrator account.

* 2 Click the "Start" button to open your Local Users and Groups.

* 3 Type "lusrmgr.msc" into the search box. Click "Enter."

* 4 Type the administrator password and confirmation, if prompted to do so.

* 5 Double click on "Local Users and Groups."

* 6 Click on "Users."

* 7 Locate the account for the password you need to reset. Right-click on the account and select "Set Password."

* 8 Type your new password.

* 9 Retype your new Windows Vista password to confirm it.
