Closed Windows XP deleted my password? Tags: Security Laptops Command Prompt Windows XP Last response: February 28, 2012 10:07 PM in Windows XP Share Suolakeksi February 28, 2012 6:49:53 PM So the problem is that when i was using my laptop i didn\t notice that my laptop batery got low and then my laptop shut down. I restarted my laptop only to find that I couldn\t login on my admin account anymore I can only use my guest account now and any attempts to change my password through the cmd has failed. it says the i don\t have permission which is true because i have set my admin account to b protected (which i regret now ) is thee a way for me to change my laptop admin password without installig software that requires me to burn something on a cd and run Could the password be changed in safemode or is there another way in cmd to change the password then net user (username) * ? Thanks!

Theres just no way to verify you are the owner. Mousemonkey February 28, 2012 10:07:09 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey Can't find your answer ? Ask !
