13 Comments to Hack to Reset Windows XP / Vista Administrator Password

  1. Great but what if you only have admin accounts in your computer? Like both my desktop and laptop doesn't any other users except me…so this application might be pretty useless to me I guess.

    here is the methods I know.

    The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget Your user account password then try this:

    Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.

    Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

    Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

    Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten Password by using "Reset Disk". If you created a Password Reset Disk in Past, you can use that disk to reset the password. To know more about It, please visit http://www.resetwindowspassword.com/

  3. use a program called kon-boot. just google it and download the .iso image. use active iso burner to burn it to a cd. reboot the computer and go to the boot menu. boot from your cd drive and let kon-boot do its thing. when you go to log in to the selected profile leave the password field blank and enter. you're in the account. you can't change your own password if you don't know it! to fix this, pull up a command prompt and type in (without quotes):

    "net user username /add"

    (username is any name you want)

    hit enter then type (without quotes):

    "net localgroup administrators /add username"

    (where username is the same as it was before)

    this will create a user with administrative privileges and no password. login to this user and go to control panel> user accounts> manage another acount. select the user you forgot the password for and delete its password. login.

      • Sorry this has taken so long! I didn’t know this got a comment. What do you mean by the techinic? Do you mean technique? if so, Kon-boot changes setting in your kernel so you can simply bypass the need for a password input. The other technique used is simple commands used in a windows cmd console. I haven’t looked at the source code of konboot or tried decompiling it so I couldn’t provide specificity in terms of exactly how the job is done. The command line is self explanitory if you’ve looked into such things.

    • I have a problem burning kon boot to a disc.
      I have used a burner called iso burner to burn kon boot but after the completion of the process when i have checked the contents of the disc it is showing that the disc is blank. Please help me.
