Windows XP deleted my password?
Feb 28, 2012, 6:49 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) * ?

Im sorry this sounds like a legitimate password issue but its against Toms policy to give information on retrieving your password.
Theres just no way to verify you are the owner.
